Question about Computers & Internet
I opened my laptop in order to fix a usb port that was functioning. Everything was going well until the end of the reassembling end. I was screwing a screw that holds the lcd connection to the motherboard. The screw slipped and touch two chips that were about 1/2 an inch away. A spark jumped out. At this point I knew I was going to have a problem. I finished putting it together. Pushed the power button, then i noticed that a didn't have backlight. Could it be the video card that I damaged or the backlight? Any assistance very appreciated.

Hi, You are VERY LUCKY, forget the laptop you could have fried yourself. My guess is you blew the inverter board. The board amplifies the current coming in to power the LCD screen. Why did you have power running while you was working?
