I tried this. Got all the components undone, replaced the trackball, and started replacing the components. Midway through, I noticed that the computer had turned on. I turned it off with the power button, and it immediately turned itself back out. I removed the battery, and started putting the components back together, this time putting the battery on last. Now, the computer won't turn on at all. No LED from the power cable, won't turn on from the battery. Does anyone have any ideas?
I was trying to do this, and the power came on when I put the battery in. I turned it off from the keyboard, and then it immediately powered on. After I took the battery out and tried reassembling by putting everything but the battery in, and then connecting the battery at the end, I had no power whatsoever, either from the power cable or from the battery. What could have caused this?
