    recently replaced LCD inverter for mitsubishi LCD. worked fine.
    unfortunately a slider for holding keyboard in place apparently stuck.
    I was very careless attempting to unstick. punctured cable at left
    under keyboard. started having boot up problems. unit would not
    complete scandisk (Win98). re-formatted. same results. now laptop
    does not boot at all. I am very disappointed. laptop was very good
    to me. want to sell as is, or sell parts, or buy parts to repair
