Let's start with System Specs first...
Toshiba Satellite P205-S6337 (Cnet link to the system Specifications)
I first started working on this thing because it didn't power on. Turns out the AC jack's bracket was damaged; fixed that by gluing it in place. The laptop powers up and charges now, but I don't get any image or light-up on the screen. Figured it was the LCD video cable, which I've replaced. Still no dice.
I've also tried plugging in an external monitor and that didn't yield results either. I can take and post some images of the mobo soon if that would help out. I'm somewhat at a loss here, and my friend who I'm fixing it for is getting antsy about it. They weren't able to tell me if the screen powered on before.
P.S. - If I'm missing some formatting, I apologize. I quickly read the post on making sure to include system specifications before posting your issue. This is my first post, so I'm sure I've made mistakes. Thanks for addressing me anyway!
