I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 and the power adapter on the back of the motherboard went bad. I understood that this was a regular thing and since I have a neighbor who is more than qualified to put on and take off items from motherboards I decided to do it myself. I took apart the laptop peice by peice and then had the part changed. I got the computer back together and when i turned it on I had no screen. Everything else seemed to boot just fine but I could not see what was going on. I took off the keyboard, checked that the monitor cable was attached correctly, and replaced the keyboard. I turned it on again and I had nothing. No lights saying that it is charging, no booting of any parts, and certainly no screen.
I was wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before and if so how did they fix it? If anyone has any ideas of any kind I would be glad to hear them.
Thanks in advance for everyone's help.
