Dead after changing case

My MacBook pro 17 unibody had hit the floor a few times, but was still working fine. I got a new case for it and replaced it. Now it won't boot. Totally dead. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot this? Maybe I pulled some cables/contacts?

Best regards,

Reset the power by removing the battery and disconnecting the AC adapter, then press and hold the power button for ten seconds. Now reconnect and see if it will power up.

It seems the cable connection from the keyboard is the issue. I can't put it back in properly. This stupid little thing is keeping my computer from working.


Use a piece of tape on the cable to pull in into the slot then close the locking tab to hold it place.
