So I was being a stupid ass and disconnected the LCD cable from the motherboard before turn off the system. Now the screen doesn't turn on.
Here's what I know for sure:
1. The system turns on, I can hear the processor working.
2. Before I completely lost the ability to have it show anything on screen, I tested two different screens and they both displayed something, albeit in weird colors (showed the correct color if I kinda yanked on the cable), so the screen is not the issue.
Here's my question, where do you guys think the problem lies? The cable? Or the connection socket on the motherboard?

Any answer is greatly appreciated.

If you are able to test multiple screens and ribbons with no effect then I would say your problem is the motherboard connection

I haven't test it with another cable, it's in the mail though. I really hope it's just the cable, cause I just got the replacement screen

It sounds like it will be the ribbon then they are very fragile it would be unusual to damage the motherboard connection

the cable just arrived. I am very relieved to say that my stupidity only damaged the cable.
