yo. I took my Laptop PC apart. now it does not power on. At all. It wont start with a charged battery or with power from the wall.
When I was taking it apart, I just took off the back and the monitor (flip top kinda off. Just disconnected the wires but I reconnected everything back perfectly.
The laptop is a HP Pavillion zv5000 with XP. My wife happens to have the same one, so I took my hard drive off and tried it on her PC and it worked fine. but then when I plug it into my pc it like tries to start up but it cant. I can hear it kinda try to spin, but then not. The lights all turn on normal on the keyboard but then the MONITOR doesnt turn on at all?
How do I figure out what the problem is? Is it the screen? I know its not the battery or the hard drive, cause Ive tested that on my wife's PC. What else could it be?
