White screen, keyboard/touchpad both unresponsive.
Today I replaced the battery in my macbook pro, whilst doing so, i slit a cable which is have found to be the ribbon cable coming from the trackpad. Now, when I turn on the laptop I see a white screen, the keys are unresponsive and nothing happens. I have ordered a ribbon cable to replace the old one but I am not convinced this is the problem. It appears that the trackpad AND the keyboard are not working, the screen is just white and doesn't load. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?
the reason i believe it can't be the trackpad causing the white screen is there are many other people with faulty track pads but they are able to boot up laptop as usual.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Is this a good question?
