Question about Micro Electronics WinBook Si Notebook
I was given an old Winbook Si Celeron and I was going to give it to my son, but I wanted to paint the case his favorite color first. I carefully disassembled the notebook being sure not to damge and of the bopards or components, I separated the display face from the back but left the display attached to the back and masked it to keep overspray off of the display. The machine was in working condition when I got it because I booted it up several times, and I've work on many desktop machines before. Now after reassembling all the boards and components back together I don't get any display when the machine is powered on. Ive checked all of the connections serval times and all of the mounting screws and I can't see anything out of place. The battery is dead but was working with the AC adapter. When the machine is powered on I have a solid orange and green light on the front panel tha don not go out, and I get a momentary flash from the far left light above the keyboard. I can hear the hard drive start up but then it goes silent. The display stays blank, no bios notification or anything. Any ideas on what to check and how or what the possible problem could be would be apreciated.
Most notebooks have 2 connectors for the LCD. One is usually a ribbon, and the other a standard 'plug in' type, which is for the inverter / backlight.
Also, try plugging in an external monitor, and use the FN and F10 keys (or whichever one switches to external monitor mode) to see if it's even getting to that point.
