My Toshiba laptop has a power problem which I guess is due to its
power plug that is connected to the motherboard. Just today I learned
(from a website) how to disassemble the laptop to get access to its
motherboard. Another guy has a brief guide on how to solve that power
Now I would like to make sure that my fix actually sovled the
problem before I assemble the whole thing. For that I need to plug the
adapter into the motherboard. Is it harmless to do so while the
HEATSINK, hard drive, CD, WiFi card, modem, keyboard, etc are
Of course, I don't need to turn on the computer, I just want to plug
the power and check the power LEDs.
Your advice and experience is really appreciated.

cooling fan removed from the CPU. If you didn't turn on the machine you
should be ok, but since destruction can occur in just a second or two if
there is no heatsink, and since accidents happen, I would not advise it.
The other stuff doesn't matter in terms of actual permanent damage.
