Will leaving the battery in during hardware replacement kill the motherboard and other components?


Jan 2, 2015
When replacing my laptops touch digitizer, I didn't bother taking out the battery since I figured nothing bad would happen if I didn't press the power button. Now the power wont start no matter what I do.

This thread suggests that the motherboard is the problem. http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-2994729/troubleshooting-power-issues-laptop.html Could it be that maybe I had power running, so the motherboard got shot? If this is the case,would it also kill the other components such as the RAM, hard drive, and battery? Please respond! I am trying to find out if I should buy the new parts or not. Thank you.
