    Hello All,
    Before I started working on my laptop, it was fulling working. I started working on it to replace the keyboard since one of the keys was not working. Yes, I had to replace the keyboard.

    Anyway, after replacing the keyboard and putting everything back together, the laptop doesn't turn on. When I press the power button, the LED with the light bulb on top lights up but nothing else.

    What I have tried: I have tried to disconnect the battery and power up using the charger but still no luck.

    I have check if I missed reconnecting any cables and all cables are connected.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome :).

    Could it be that you've knocked the LCD ribbon cable out of place when replacing the keyboard? That would fit with the symptoms and is very easy to do when working inside a laptop.
