no video to laptop monitor

By bonfire817 ·
k...so im kinda a dumbass and couldnt get my laptop to boot properly or any power to the monitor after taking it apart, then 2 wks later realizing that the memory module was not pushed all the way in...so now it is booting up,i can hear windows starting and the lcd backlight is coming on but now there is still no video on the screen. I didn't mess with the monitor except to remove it in the initial disassembly (which i did to solder the power jack, working quite well now) any ideas what could be the prob? I did try hooking my desktop monitor up to it and there was no reaction at all.

Perhaps it's approaching the cut-off point now where you'll realise you've maybe interfered with the video signal supply.

Does your laptop have the video chip on a daughterboard / subassembly? If so, maybe it also needs 'a push'.

Another point: the micro-ribbon cable to the monitor is notorious for not enjoying being handled, particularly once it has some miles on the clock.
