The fact that it worked just before you put in the screws makes me wonder if you didn't accidentally put in the screws in the wrong place. I would take the screws out (for the screen bracket) and check them with a digital caliper to be certain they were not screwed in the wrong holes. You could have Long-Screw Damage

Austin's suggestions are good too so I would definitely try them.

try a different battery. if that doesnt help, try connecting the screen without the prox flex. a damaged prox flex can cause all sorts of weird boot issues.
