    Did you do the replacement of parts with the battery removed and no charger connected to the laptop?

    Have you already removed the CMOS battery, laptop battery and charger and let it sit a bit and then try to power it up using AC only?

    Can you post photos?
    Maybe something not well seated, or upside down.

    5 Beeps is the CMOS battery. Just make sure that it's seated properly. Sometimes just restarting it a few times will get rid of this error.

    Oh sorry, I read it wrong.

    It's possible that you damaged the ribbon cables. They are quite fragile so take them out and check the ends that go into the connectors. If any of the gold tips are damaged then it could be causing your issue
