I recently replaced my mainboard because I had a water-related issues (the lid came off my water bottle in my bag and soaked my laptop ). I tried to deal with the issue as quickly as possible, but I discovered that I had fried a chip on my mainboard so it was replaced. All other components looked fine, but just to be sure I completely dismantled my laptop, carefully dried everything and reassembled when I got my new mainboard. Everything seemed to be going fine for the first day. I run Windows 11 and was able to restore everything using the bitlocker recovery key. The next day, I had an unexpected shutdown with the bluescreen error (I didn’t catch the message before the screen died, unfortunately).
I’ve attempted to reboot several times using this as a guide (My Framework Laptop (Intel 11th Gen Intel® Core™) is not powering on).
- The power button lights up, I have solid white leds on the side, and the fan is running, but no screen
- I reseated the ram and both memory cards
- swapped the memory cards and tried one at a time in each slot
I’m still getting a blank screen with a solid led and only the fan running.
I’m fairly new to all this and have been enjoying the ability to troubleshoot my own computer issues, but I’ve hit a brick wall.
