hello tomshardware community i'm here today because my friends dog dropped his laptop the other day, and when this happened the screen stopped working, SO i told him i would fix it, i am not a trained IT but i do know how to build a computer and alot about windows OS as well on how to fix computers and stuff, So i am tech savy, i figured it was the monitor but the other day he brought me the laptop and i pressed the power button and it booted just fine, And the screen was not cracked or anything so i told him nothing seems to be wrong but then the next morning he said it stopped working again, So i thought maybe its the cable that powers the screen so today i took out the screen and checked to see if it was the cable, And unplugged it and plugged it back in, and that did not fix anything.
Now that i am looking at it , i don't think it was ever the screen to begin with because i even tried plugging it into an external monitor and no boot or anything.
But i did notice something When u try too turn on the laptop, It starts but then turns off and starts and turns off it does it about 4 times then fully turns itself off, i hear the fans turn on but then they turn off and the power button turns off then turns back on.
Now i am trying too figure out what this problem is so i can fix it, I told him he probably wont need to take it to a repair shop as if i figure out the problem i can fix it, Is there anyone here that can help me?
EDIT: When i took the battery out, And kept it charging still the same reaction, i took out the ram and plugged it back in took out the HDD and plugged it back in, still the same problem, Then i took out the charger and tried to boot it and it only tried to start once then stopped it's on for about 4 seconds before it turns itself off, Wont stay on completely.
The charger was plugged into the laptop when it fell, Please Help me.
