Since a week ago my laptop started shutting down (hibernating?) while I was doing something intensive like gaming. After I boot it I would get a message that my laptop had shutdown to avoid thermal damage, I read more about it online and decided it's time to clean the fan and the insides of the laptop... it sure had a lot of dust inside, all cleaned up now.
The problem is that my laptop (HP 2000-2106TU Notebook PC) had a design where I would have to take everything out until the motherboard (system board) to take out the fan/cooling system. I followed the manual and took everything apart, cleaned all of it, my dad used a mini vacuum clear to "blow out" the dust, I believe he did it carefully and did not blow anything important.
After the cleaning I assembled all of the parts back in, some of the screws were in the wrong places (some screws were missing, I blame the repair guy who repaired this laptop's display ~2 years ago) but everything was fit and not falling apart, quite robust if you ask me.
I put the battery in (final part in the assembling process), Fingers crossed and pressed the power button... nothing! No lights, no beeps, no spinning noise, nothing. As if the power button was not pressed at all
My dad disassembled it again to take a look at all the connectors, all of them were connected correctly to my knowledge, but my dad re-did everything to just make sure. We started it again, but nothing like the last time.
Dad plugged in the power adapter/charger to the laptop and he saw the indicator light which shows if it is charging lit up, it was glowing in white color according to my dad (I wasn't there), white indicates that the battery is full, which is correct because I always keep it plugged in while I am at home.
We both tried pressing the power button while it was plugged in, but sadly no response like our previous failures. I am currently a little worried and little frustrated.
Can anyone give me advice that I can try? Maybe it's something obvious that we didn't notice :-/
I made sure that the connector for the power button is connected to the system board (motherboard), however I am not able to make sure, the ZIF connectors are too easy to connect...
