laptop wont come on after inserting internal display

Toshiba Satellite c655-s5082 laptop
January 19, 2014 at 13:23:31
Specs: Windows xp
Every time I insert my internal display into my laptop's motherboard, the laptop would not come on when the power switch is pressed.

It would only come on when the display is not inserted. Windows will start like normal with sounds and everything.
As soon as i insert the internal display, it would not come on.
This is the only device causing this problem.

What do I do or what can be the problem?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "Internal Display" and how you're inserting it. Can you clarify?

Remember this is a laptop.
When I say internal display I am referring to the laptop's LCD screen which is normally plugged on to the motherboard of the computer.
So, by me saying inserting the LCD screen on to the motherboard, I am attaching or plugging on the screen on the available slot on the board made for the LCD screen

Hold down the power button until you hear it shut off, then plug in the screen and power up the unit. Is there a FN key that toggles it between an external monitor and the native one?

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

All of the above were done already. Everything else seems to work well with the computer including external monitors when plugged in. The only problem with the LCD display screen.

Every time I plug the screen on the board, the board will not get power. Once I unplug the screen from the board, the board will get power and windows will start up as usual.
If I decide to plug on the screen while the computer is running, the computer will just power off immediately once the screen connection is detected.

To summarize everything, regardless of what ever situations, once the screen is plugged on to the mother board, the computer will not work unless it is unplugged.

So let's back up a little here and tell us why you took your laptop apart in the first place and unplugged the display. Something must have made you unplug it. Tell us the whole story.

well unfortunately, the power jack went bad so I had to replace it. On this particular laptop I had to remove the board completely out of its position in order to access the port where the jack was plugged in. As a result, I had to remove all other devices then, in order to remove the board.
