Dell laptop problem

  1. Ok i really screwed up I just want to know how bad. My Dell Inspirion laptop was diagnosed with a bad screen The Repair shop wanted 220 bucks to replace the screen. I thought they are NUTS. So I took off the screen cover, removed the screws holding the screen in place and checked the cable to the screen. It seemed loose to me so I pressed it back into place. powered up the laptop. Screen still bad I checked the connection, while checking this the connector pulled out, while pushing it back the connector sparked. Now the laptop will not power up. HELP????

    Sudden power surges can be ruinous... but you don't know until an experienced tech with good electronics tools can check it... The check alone will cost $35 to $65 depending on where you are and who does the work.
