Dead n78 HELP!!

Hi everyone,
I dropped my n78 and it got some damage but it worked fine, the lcd was cracked and so was the case of the headset.
So i order a few part to try to replace it myself since it was out of warranty and parts here from nokia are half of what you can pay for a new phone.

so i replaced the parts but so far the phone is dead, I don't know what happened,

the screen just blinks a few times just being white and then nothing, the keypad stays on and the screen like on but showing nothing , just black.

the pc doesn't recognize it

I feel like it's just a damn brick,

could some one help me out, I don't know what to do with it. I'll probably end up taking it to some nokia center but at least I want to try fixing it myself first

Most likely it will still be a hardware issue like short-circuit or some other damage . When you think it could be due to software , you could try the "Vulcan Death Grip" . Read my post here :
