Default Mini 9 Won't Boot - 02-26-2010, 09:45 PM

I just received a new palmrest touchpad assembly to replace the one that I fried a few weeks back. Unfortunately, it didn't include the cable for the power daughter board which meant that I would have to remove the one from the old assembly and solder it to the replacement.

Everything seemed to go well until I went to turn it on. The power LED came on but the screen remained blank and didn't even light up. I tried connecting a VGA cable to an external display and that didn't work either. At this point, it seems my Mini 9 is bricked.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
