Ooooh! That was not a smart thing to do.You may have shorted something out.

Try this:

Make sure it is unplugged.
Remove the battery.
Remove the hard drive again.
Hold down the power button for at least 60 seconds.
Replace the hard drive. Make sure it is seated properly.
Try booting.

If the power light comes on but the laptop will not boot you may have fried your hard drive.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Hard drive door unscrewed and hard drive was hanging... Now this screen?


This is a network PXE boot screen. This is usually the last boot device it will try if it doesn't detect a HDD or cd/dvd drive with bootable media. You should be able to see a hard drive in bios, if not replce it and re-install your operating system.

Dell Insprion 1520 laptop power problem


The blinking lights is telling you what is wrong. I think it is your memory or the cmos battery.
Check the link below for what the blinks mean.

Cmos Battery link below
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1520/en/sm/coinbatt.htm#wp1179839
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

PC or Laptops that are not booting up are cause on Hard Disk failure.
With it, assurance that this your hard disk driver is functioning or have a power.
Also by this procedure make sure that in the BIOS is Hard Drive appear and priorirty to boot up first.
Also for any question and information appear on the screen , please let me know.
Good luck!

Will not boot up


I have only seen this once and I hope it fixes your problem. please open all the bottom plates of your laptop and see if you can get any loose parts out of the laptop. it may be shorting out the system. the only other thing it could be is your harddrive. but if it wasnt dropped or anything like you said. I dont think your platters in your harddrive would of just shattered. I hope this helps.

My screen is black!


There is a boot problem, maybe. I think you have accidentally disconnected the screen or the RAM module cables. Be sure of what you're doing before opening up a laptop.

Search online for the process of fixing this by reconnecting the cables. Or maybe, you have to get a doctor if you can't do it yourself.
