Hello,

 

I'm totally new to this forum, but am in need of some help. We opened up my brothers computer to blow out the accumulated dust, especially around the fan area, which required me to remove the whole heatsink and detach, what I'm assuming was the display cable and of course the battery to prevent issues. Well, after cleaning it and putting fresh thermal compound on the heatsink and reconnecting everything the bloody thing will not turn on. I've tried removing the CMOS battery and stuff and doing a hard reset and all that jazz. Nothing is turning on still. The only thing that turns on is the light to the battery and the little light that has a light bulb next to it has come on, but nothing else will turn on. Any ideas and how to fix the issue?

 

Thanks,

Edit: This is an Asus Q551L, I had a typo.

By hard reset do you mean pull the battery, power, and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds? If yes then you will need to check all your connections again. Was the display cable the only one you detached?

Yes, that is what I did. I've checked and rechecked the cables. No, the display cable was not the only one. I had to disconnect the fan obviously to blow the crud out of it and I disconnected the battery too.

If all cables have been double checked then I think at this point you are going to have to take it to a good shop, sorry. Somebody else on the forum may have some other ideas.
