Although it may be tempting to open the box and start playing with your <b>Tablet PC</b>, one of the most important things you should do is calibrate your pen. This means spending time with the pen after a few steps to ensure that the tablet PC pen knows the touch screen is used. To do this, click Start, and the parameters of the search field type <b>Tablet PC</b>. On the list of results Tablet PC Settings and from there go to <b>Display </b>> <b>Display Options</b> > <b>Calibrate</b>.Follow the steps to finish the door and remember to save your settings to accept calibration.<br />
I do jack replacements. It requieres soldering and completely dissasembling the laptop. Do not attempt unless you know what you are doing and have the proper tools and work setup. If you still want to do it yourself (at your own risk of course) you basicaly need to take the laptop apart, remove the brokem jack (de-solder) and put in the new one. Use maximum of 15Watt soldering iron. You can get all the tools you need at a local radio shack or electronics store. Good Luck.
If your LCD monitor has damage it could be in three forrmats:
1) Damage LCD ribbon. The screen will power up bright white and you will see random strings of color in diaganol or horizontal streaking slowly across your screen.
2) Damaged Liquid Crystal Container. The thin glass/plastic may have ruptured due to an impact on the screen. You will see sharp jagged lines and maybe a partial post screen, but where the sharp "jaggies" are, are now permantly broken
3) Nothing on screen. This indicates that your internal CCFL (oh I love LED technology) tubes have now lived their life and will not ignite. To test this method, hold a very bright light to the screen and see if you can see any logos (Compaq/HP/Win Xp loading screen...etc)
If you can see something, your screen is fine, but there is no light behind it for you to see.
Based on your post/description that it was not the laptop that was dropped and that all the connections are snugly fitted to where they should be, the dropping of the moused caused the laptop to be dead, then it is likely that the +5VDC of the mouse cable has shorted to the ground wire. The short is reflected towards inside the motherboard of your laptop. This +5VDC is common to all the USB ports, PS2 ports, and many other parts of the laptop. The short would open up a fuse somewhere inside.
I can only surmise that the power supply is involved. You may need to check that the powersupply/AC adaptor (if present) is giving juice to your laptop with the use of a VOM, since as I understand it, simply plugging in your laptop to the mains would lit an indicator that ACpower is available.
Normally a surface mounted fuse is on the motherboard right after the jack where the AC adaptor plug comes in and right before a reverse protection diode.
If you are uncomfortable opening your unit and would not be in a position to do component level repair, you are probably better off seeking the services of a qualified service professional.
Hope this give you and idea. Good luck and kind regards.
