first of all, you should really never take apart a laptop to begin with...just like you shouldn't really take apart a power supply or CRD monitor.

but chances something fried due to ESD

ok sorry some more explanation, its an asus a2500l i was doing a general upgrade to it , ram, cd ,hdd as well as cleaning out the cpu cooler , as the cpu was completley stuck to the heatsink i just undid the latch and took them both out together i was using an anti static strap so i doubt i fried somthing , the batterie has not worked in quite some time on this laptop so the only power source is the power jack i guess it is possible that i knocked somthing there , laptop has been put back to original config to see if it was the new parts but this does not make any difference.
