I did these steps and replaced the battery. Now my computer won’t turn on. No indicator lights, no fans, nothing. I tried to “reset” the battery (with the paper lip in the back. Didn’t work. So then I : unplugged everything held the power button down 60 seconds plugged the battery back in, no. Then I tried to disconnect the battery hold the power button down, plug the AC in [still no battery in it] and still nothing.

any ideas on what I did wrong or should check?

Again ask him for some pointers and see what he can tell you worse case scenario if you live in Boston or close by you can arrange an appointment with him drop your laptop. !&&* give you a receipt and if he cant fix it you get your money back as long as you have the receipt. He’s much better and far more experienced. You can also call me as well if you like.
