Messed up repair. Loud popping noise and power shuts off.
I was performing what should have been a simple C Stick replacement, but I goofed it up. I was following this teardown video but realized I could access the C Stick without removing the entire motherboard. I realized this after removing the first 3 ribbons as shown in the video.
After replacing it I rebuilt it and replaced the ribbons. In doing so, the second and smallest ribbon removed seemed to have its clip damaged.
When I tried to power it in, the blue led came on, it sat for 4 seconds, and it made a loud popping noise.
Searching this site, I managed to discover that meant either a fuse was blown or a ribbon was out of place. I have since attached and reattached the ribbons hoping but have had no luck in resolving the issue.
The broken clamp does not seem to have anything on the clamp itself that would have any purpose other than holding it in but I'm afraid it could have some connection I have damaged.
What are my steps from here? Do I check the fuses or try taping down the suspected ribbon or do you see something in either of my picture I've missed? Honestly I've just been messing with this for 2 hours and need a new pair of eyes that know more about this than me.
Is this a good question?
