personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.

I suggest you replace the motherboard. A recent search on ebay turned up three ranging in price from $18 to $85. Soldering a motherboard by hand has a very high failure rate. It's easy to bridge or scratch something and fry the board. You could of course try to do it and if it fails get a replacement board.

Can you lift the plastic bar at either side on the board where the cable was pulled from?.If so,just lift both sides,one at a time till the plastic bar is loose,then seat your cable straight down until it will go no further and then push both sides of the bar back down to secure the cable...hope that fixes your problem:)

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases. Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop. Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.
Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover. Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it. Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.
Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.
hope this helps
