    You're absolutely correct mate. I went and found the part of the video where that particular cable is disconnected. It's just the cable for the web camera. Sorry about that.

    Well, did you do what I suggested before?
    No power would mean No Lights including LED. From what I read you really had no power situation of dead mobo. But after changing motherboard you do have LED flashing so it has power and the problem is in something else. So did you do what I suggested before?

    Uh... no I didn't. I haven't touched it since the first try... will be doing that this weekend before I take it apart again. I wanted to go get some tape that they use on computers at the local computer shop first. So wish me luck this weekend.

    To clarify, I had no green power light, but the second light next to it, the battery light came on flashing orange, then after a few minutes turned into a steady white light. Then after a half hour I unplugged the laptop.

    Does cooler work?
    May it be that steady white means fully charged while blinking means charging?
    You did connect all wires, didn't you? Except webcam?

    I'm deaf, so I don't hear beeps, fans or any kind of noise. :( Yes, pretty sure I hooked up everything... but I will make sure this time around.

    OK, this weekend I will try what James D suggested and what the guy who I got the MB off eBay suggested... he is being helpful:

    I'll give you a list of things to check/do before going further.

    1. Did you make sure and lock the CPU after installing it? I've done this multiple times and it will show the exact symptoms you're having.
    2. Remove everything that isn't required to power on the laptop (Disc drive, HDD, SSD, Battery, ETC) and then see if it powers on.
    3. Remove flea power. Remove the battery and power adapter and hold down the power button for 60 seconds.
    4. Remove the keyboard and triple check the power button ribbon cable. You wouldn't believe how many times I didn't connect it properly.
    ******************************
    From James D on notebook review forum: Try take out battery, AC, press power 7 sec and turn on. If nothing then take out battery, AC, RAM, turn it on without RAM, turn it off in half a minute by pressing power 7 sec, put RAM back in and try.

    None of the above worked, so I completely tore it down all the way to the fan/heatsink. Will take that off tomorrow as I don't want any dirt on the cpu/gpu overnight. I will slowly put it back together double checking all connections etc tomorrow as it's almost midnight here and hope it works. Meanwhile any tips appreciated.
