There is no display on external monitor via vga. right now i'm checking the hd on my desktop for errors, but it mounted fine and all of the files are there.

not sure how to tell the guy that his laptop was working, but then completely died - for reasons I don't know about.

many lessons learned on this one.

i'll try to get a boot with external display. if i can't get that, then I must have somehow shorted the board. (hard to believe, with anti-static, no power, no battery, etc while working on it.)

*edit - checking and repair bad sectors stalled, so i'm backing up the hd...
