Is there a chance that when you were putting the case on, the ribbon #1 popped off and before you got to plug it into the computer, its battery had discharged? If so, try leaving it in the charger for an hour and then see if the computer recognizes it.

the thing is, phone was working fine after i put the screen on, you're saying it might have popped off randomly after two days?

I agree with John hopefully only "the ribbon #1 popped off". To check connect connect your iPhone back to computer with iTunes open does iTunes recognize it? When connected to computer does your vibrate switch make phone vibrate? If yes to either, then most likely ribbon #1 is loose.

unfortunately, when i connect it to the computer the i tunes doesn't recognize it, neither does my computer and the apple logo doesn't even come on, its so weird, it just blanked out, it won't do anything, it doesn't vibrate when i do that either.

You said you reset the iPhone. But lets try another Hard Reset. Hold both at same time Power and Home Buttons for about 15 seconds until the iPhone powers on. If this does not work then... It is time to carefully open up your iPhone and carefully reconnect Flex Cable #4. Carefully put your iPhone back together. See if that fixes it. Good luck.
