I have an HP Pavilion 17E that will not boot up. I got it from a guy who said it only needs the PowerJack replaced. Well I replaced it and when I push the power button I get nothing. I have checked the board at several locations and get power but no lights or anything else. At first I wondered if maybe the new jack and cable were bad, but I get power through it. I was thinking even if the CPU was bad I would at least get a fan on.

Have you tried power cycling the computer? Pull the battery and power adapter. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the power adapter but not the battery and see if the computer boots.

 

Some laptop computers will not boot if the CMOS battery is dead. You may want to check the voltage of the battery.

I've seen more than a few lifted traces around those connectors.  Some so bad it needed the entire PCB replaced.

Don't think it is a trace since it is connected with a MOLEX connector
