My laptop will not turn on after disassembly


First: sorry for my bad English.

I have problem with my laptop.

After I tear down my laptop because USB port won’t load any USB’s in it nothing was popping up so I decided to tear it down to see what’s the problem. After I tear it down I did not see any problem with USB ports so I put it back like what it was before I tear it down.

After that laptop didn’t turn on anymore and I don’t know what is the problem even I did not change anything in it.

Is this a good question?

You must have done something. Go back and review what you did. You may have incorrectly connected one of the ribbon cables.


Nope I checked it and still nothing.

These laptops require professional service, so it’s possible you accidentally did something to it accidentally. You may need to replace it or get it serviced.

Hi electrickid620,

IFIXIT is about helping people fix their devices themselves. Taking the device to professional services is only recommended after exhaustive testing, etc. has been done. That is mainly why people come to this site. Your advice is just a bit premature at this point. For example, the laptop may actually be booting up but the screen is blank. We don't know at this point and that is the point.


Yes, sorry. I was just recommending it if you couldn’t figure it out.

While these steps may not be the answer they are the first steps in diagnosing the problem and eliminating possible causes. One question. Have you ever torn down a laptop before?

What is the laptop telling you? anything?

Status Light Indicators: The status indicators help identify the current hardware status of your Notebook PC.

  • Power indicator lights up when the Notebook is turned on and blinks slowly when the Notebook PC is in sleep mode.
  • Two-colour battery charge indicator

Solid Green = Notebook charger is plugged in and the battery power is between 95% and 100%.

Solid Orange  = Notebook charger is plugged in charging its battery and the battery power is less than 95%.

Blinking Orange  = Notebook is running only on the battery and the battery power is less than 10%.

Lights off  =  Notebook is running only on the battery and the battery power is between 10% to 100%.

  • Drive activity indicator lights up when your Notebook is accessing the internal storage drives.
  • Airplane mode indicator lights up when the Airplane mode in your Notebook PC is enabled.

User Manual:

Next: You will want to first try these three combinations. Make sure power is off and unplugged when making changes.

  • Battery in and charger plugged in. Observe lights and listen for fan spinning.
  • Battery only with no charger. Again watch lights and listen.
  • Take out the battery and plug in charger. Same again.
  • Unplug charger with battery out and gently hold the power buuton down for 30 seconds.

With just the charger plugged in try turning on laptop. Anything.

  • If you get lights you could try connecting to your TV with the HDMI cable.

We await your reply. Good luck. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.

Sorry I didn't respond to your comment, but it not just won't turn on, it is just dead. So I decided to take the laptop into service and they told me that some parts were burned, so ...
