Title:

Fixed LCD No problem. Shut down & won't power back on?

Text:

Hello everyone at ifixIt! I need some advice or ideas why this might be happening. I recently Repaired a Gateway NV78 Laptop LCD and had no problems! I turned on the laptop and the display looked brand new!

Moments later it shut off completely as if the battery got ripped out.. I thought maybe it died but won't charge or power on! Just black screen emptiness... What happened!? Please help me suggestions, ideas, anything will help,
 
Thank you.
