After attempting to clean keyboard, laptop won't power on
Following the directions on removing the keyboard from this site, I dismantled the laptop, removed the keyboard, cleaned, and put everything back together again. Now though, when I plug in my power adapter and press the power switch, nothing happens. No fan, no sound, nothing else.
The status indicator at the front of the laptop never turns on or breathes, and the power adapter's led is green. I've double and triple checked that all the connectors on the keyboard are connected (backlight, keyboard ribbon, trackpad ribbon, and motherboard connection you manually press into place).
I must have disconnected something without realizing, or am not properly connecting one of the ribbons mentioned above. Given my description, does anyone have any hints as to what may be the issue? Under what situations does the white status indicator light turn on?
How far do the ribbons need to be inserted into those connectors? For example the orange one that connects to the trackpad, should it be in all the way up to the black line? I haven't been able to push it in further.
Is this a good question?
