hard drive replacement killed the laptop?
alright, I'm posting on behalf of a friend(doing chat on facebook..), who is trying to replace the harddrive on a windows 7 laptop.
now.. installation of the new drive did not go to plan, so he tried to put the old one in, and the computer apparently took this as cause to commit seppeku if you will.
we have tried everything, up to and including testing for a bad mobo, which I suspect it is.
all he's getting is a power light, not even the screen's backlight is coming up.
attached is the system specs below.
intel dual core 1.75, 160gb hdd, 2gb ram, compaq presario cq60
