Hi All,

I have a ASUS ROG G751JL-BB17T29 and recently changed the battery in it as it had stopped charging. Stupidly I didn't unplug the battery before plugging the the display back in and it sparked, followed by a burning smell. So now there is no display when I turn the laptop back on. If I shine a light on the screen i can see my desktop and it also works when plugged into an external display.

Looking at the motherboard, it looks like the pins on the display point have become deformed. (I have a pic if needed). I'm just wondering if this is something repairable? New mobos for this laptop aren't cheap, so i'd rather just repair this one if possible

Wow that's a relief to hear! Thanks so much for your help.

I doubt I'll do it myself as I have 0 electrical/soldering knowledge, but at least I can potentially take it to someone now!

Thanks again!
