Installed a new (Intel 7260 HMWG-R network card) now the computer will not BOOT. When I took it apart a small S sept Spring like ting fell out by the left hinge aria might be for a ground?? cant see where it goes. Too it apart 4 times, cant get it to BOOT UP, no lights noting.
Need someone to set me straight PLEAS

Ouch. Did you pull the new wifi card and see if it booted without it? Not sure why there would be a spring for ground? No lights at all is not good. I would pull all the hardware you can and see if you can get it to give any sign of life.

You missed something or botched something. A bit hard to tell without having sit in front of me.
I know you said you have taken it down several times. I would recommend to take it down again and find a tear down vid on youtube to reference for reassembly. To not get anything the first thing I would be looking at is the battery connections to the MOBO.

I agree with Justin, Here is a link to the very best disassemble video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9KHrJKInmA.
I blew out one of those clips you speak of. Everyone at that time concluded that it was just a clip to maintain separation of some parts? that was a couple of years ago and I haven't had any issues with out it.

Thanks to bought of you, I went back in and there was a lose Cable. The computer now works, the only thing the keyboard is hard to work, really have to press the keys real hard and the backlight doesn't work anymore. Installed the atk drivers but it did not help, the keys are not as sensitive any more as they where before. I will look around, maybe I can find the answer. ;)

could be a battery issue at this point. what does it do when you take the battery out but leave it plugged in? Or unplug and run just on battery.
as far as keyboard and lights.. did you make sure all ribbon cables are fully in MB slots? if one is out just a touch it can cause issues. I believe the small brown ribbon cable is for the LED's.
My G75vw is apart (but together) if you need any pictures for reference as to how things are suppose to go.

You can't buy just that cable. Not to mention the time it would take you to take out all the screwed and then undo the adhesive back. More prone to do more damage if you don't have experience taking apart a notebook keyboard. If just buy a new keyboard. Here's one on eBay. It's located in the US. Some are cheaper but ship from China. Up to you.

Brown cable is LED's, other wide cable works the rest of your board. I'd double check the cables. Make sure cables aren't broken and pins are all good.
