Default Blank Screen when turning on laptop

Hello all,
My dad has a Dell Latitude D620. He complained his touchpad button was sticking. I took his laptop apart pulled the monitor/ keyboard, hard drive and battery just to get to his touchpad. I removed whatever was causing the problem. I connected everything properly and put all hardware together. I turned on the computer and it turns on but now the screen is blank. I have no clue of whats going on. I'm very frustrated, please help!

I would say you should look and see if the monitor connection is ok. I don't know a whole lot about all the internals of a laptop, but I would say it has something to do with how you hooked it all back up. One of the connections might not be back completely.

Either it hasn't been reconnected properly or it was damaged during the process of disassembling. That's what I think .
Need to update my siggy!

Check your Ram. I had this same problem with my acer aspire, turned out a Ram slot was bad. Depending on how much you have, just test your slots one at a time. Of course take the battery out, and to feel safer use a anti-static wrist strap. Let us know what you find.
