This forum is not visited very often so you were fortunate I passed by.
However, I can't help. I suggest you re-post in a forum where you are likely to get more visits.
Try the list of forums on the left. The Computer Help looks a good bet.
One thing. When you cracked open the case and touched the wires, did you "Ground Yourself" first? Static charge build up in your fingers can do funny things to micro circuits.
I will lock this and let you copy/paste into a new forum post.
