Thinkpad T400 Display and status lights not working



My thinkpad's display isn't working, nor are any of the status lights except the wifi one.


A few things you should know about my ThinkPad

  1. SSD Upgrade
  2. BIG ONE: WAS drenched in water, did not turn on. I took it apart, dried it out, and put it back. It worked fine.
  3. Faulty CD Drive (randomly pops out, but recently is behaving itself)
  4. LCD Ribbon cable (connector cable) changed once for the same problem, but it's happening again now.
  5. RAM upgraded to 8 gigs
  6. Recently, like two days ago, a startup interrupt menu keeps showing up. No keys were pressed upon startup, but it still shows up. 
  7. Windows 7 Pro
  8. Hinges are loose, display wobbles back and forth quite a bit.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction, I dont wanna keep buying ribbon cables! 


Thank You!

Most probable is that the mb is blown, if display is dark like you say...
