Title:

Fans bumping not spinning not powering on

Text:

I replace the lower case, everything went smooth, but now when I hooked up the battery and hit power the fans just bump and do nothing... I hook up the power supply and the fans bump constantly.  I get a green light on the power supply, the battery is at 3 lights but won't charge... I replaced the I/O board and the same issue. I reset the SMC and tested the jumper on the logic board for the power bypass... fans respond same.  Is this a logic board problem now?  Any help is appreciated.

== Update ==

Hey Ralph thanks for the idea... stripped the computer down again and checked the fram rib and double checked the screws as you suggested... got all the right one in the right place and not ripped down tight, didn't see any dents in the lower case to show the screws touching.  Same issue persists.

Can't see it moving in a pic, but that green light is with a battery with only 3 lights. Thanks again.
