What "cable connected to motherboard' are you talking about?Finally mx-5 arrive.
Opened the laptop.
Unscrew all torqs
Disconnect the cable that go to mainboard.
Put mx-5 pt.. Awesome paste..
Screw all. Torqs.
Connected the cable to MB and suddenly
Sparkles and smell to burn plástic. A little black smoke come to me.
I burn and kill my laptop
Not turning on
Battery was connected.. A big big mistake
Come from technical store. A waiting for the resume of damages.
The battery cable?! Or a different cable?
The only cables that have to be disconnected when repasting a laptop is:
1) AC power cable (first, before you take the laptop apart).
2) Battery internal connector cable.
When re-assembling connect:
1) Battery internal connector cable, right before chassis plastic panel attachment (make sure proper connection and insertion fit!)--battery cable is the very last cable to plug in before you put the "case" cover on.
2) AC Power cable (After chassis fully assembled and screwed only).
So what happened?
