Alienware 17 R4 (Possible Motherboard repair??)
Hello fellow Alienheads maybe you guys can help me out here... TY in advance.

Alienware 17,R4 (Possible Motherboard repair??)
Laptop was dropped and went I went to turn it on LCD was messed up. So i ordered a oem LCD and replaced it,.
Went to turn it on, It was looking good the "Alienware" logo turned on but went through some sort through a Bios update or memory (? It was so late and I was tired... forgot) some sort of update...Then said it could not boot, SySTEM shutdown.
----I know my battery life is low so during this time, my Alienware was flashing from low battery, I frantically grabbed the adapter and plugged it in.... The laptop was able to perform the update mentioned above but did not detect the adapter withe the normal light when I plugged it in.----------
Now, the laptop will not boot. With or without the adapter plugged in. Tried the battery reset for power surge with not luck.
Does this sound like a bad motherboard? Can a SSD cause this?
Anyway, I'm ordering a adapter and SSD, maybe a battery to diagnose but I was hoping for some sort of advice
