    Hello there
    My mate, an ex TV fixer, like myself, was given a Compaq 2500 notebook to
    'It's only the USB socket a bit loose'
    After dismantling (long time) the socket was soon resoldered.
    On reassembly he ended up with no brightness on screen. Zilch.
    Many hours later.... same.
    He was wondering if maybe dissing the little plug/skts had
    caused the bios or summit to get wiped.
    Iv'e kown him for many years and he didn't used to swear:)
    Any info would be appreciated.

    This might be a long shot, but . . . . .

    Assuming that any of the cables that connect the mobo to the display were
    not damaged, and were reconnected securely, I'd look for a little button
    that gets depressed when the display is folded down. This turns the screen
    off, since no one could see it anyway.

    Often, that's a tiny little button, on the bottom part of the laptop, just
    under the display. It may have not lined up correctly when he reassebled
    the case and just needs to be freed up.

    Keep us posted on how it turns out.

    Does it make POST beeps? Any noise like fans? Plug an external monitor
    into it?
