Laptop won't power on!

by zackster123 / January 22, 2008 10:36 AM PST

OK, so I have an Toshiba Satellite M115 S1061. I took the back off and then when I put it back on, my computer wouldn't turn on. I really don't think it's my power supply because it was working right before I took the back off. Can anybody diagnose this? Thanks!

What did you do

What did you do when the back cover was off? Or put another way, why did you take the cover off in the first place?

I took off the back because I was looking at my PC card slot since something got jammed in there that I just noticed now. I have never taken off the back before, but I read all the steps on how to do it and even used a special bracelet to prevent static electricty on my computer. I put it back on fine, just how it was before. I am very extremely skilled in Software but I'm no better than 3rd grader in hardware.
