I've pressed F1 (& everything else .. ) ...just get any combo of beeps! :( Reset button also 100+x, with it on/off, tapping, holding, etc. Ahh! CTRL+ALT+DEL works by switching the white screen to black; ESC turns it back. And the brightness buttons work. So it seems the screen, buttons, etc. all "wo...

Hiiiiiii there! I finally got a chance to check on your kind suggestions! Sadly, it's exhibiting the same behavior. I'd removed + plugged the CMOS + battery multiple times in this "endeavor". One/both out/in ...turned on/off via adapter only, etc. x~100! Ack. That angled USB cable was under the batt...

RealBlackStuff - omg .. THANK you! :) I don't believe any other MB would just pop in?! Attempted research with that; opted for the OG for a *seamless* install - ha! :o I've reattached the LCD several times :( I have not tried to remove the SSD/WiFi since install, nor an external monitor (don't have ...

*X1 Carbon gen1 - 3444 [B8U] - motherboard replaced - white screen - POSTs - USB?!!!
