Touched my Mobo with a screwdriver and screen blacked out

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was trying to test a laptop keyboard and whilst securing the keyboard connector onto the motherboard the screwdriver accidentally touched the motherboard there was a spark and the laptop powered off. I power it back up but the screen remains black. Connecting the laptop to an external screen works okay. Laptop is a Lenovo S20.

Any ideas what might have broken and how can it be fixed?

Fix would be to send it off to a repair shop.  You shorted something and let the magic smoke out.  Probably fried something connecting the internal display to the board. 


Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly.
