Hello. I have an Acer laptop (Aspire 3623) which was dropped a few weeks ago resulting in damage to the LCD screen (flickers between a completely black screen and distorted image colors, mostly seen with extreme tilting). Soon it became black screen all the time. Potential culprits being either a damaged LCD backlight or inverter, a newly purchased and installed inverter did not fix the problem. I unplugged the video cable of the old LCD screen to replace it with a new one but forgot to remove the power cord while doing so , even though the unit was off. Well, now the laptop does not power up with neither the AC adapter nor the battery. The green light on the adapter dims out and flickers when the cord is inserted into the laptop. I guess I short circuited the laptop . My questions are: How bad do you think this is, and could it be fixed? Does this mean that I need a motherboard replacement or ditch the laptop? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
