Alright guys so I would like to ask you a question with one particular cable. I was gonna remove my HDD from my laptop but then I decided not to do it.

But my laptop will not start nor power up after I put it back. Basically what I did was I unscrewed my HDD and then put it back. But then I realized I accidently damaged one of the cables right next to the screw. I wonder what type of cable is this and what it is used for. There are two cables and I damaged the white one. See on the picture.

Thanks for your answers.

Just disconnect the cable and bring it to a supply place and they'll sell you the replacement.

Looks like the antenna for the wifi card or possibly a bluetooth card.

And do you guys think that this could prevent the laptop from starting ?

Or from not powering up ? Cause I am a bit worried about the motherboard if I did not screw something up you know maybe just accidentally

I mean cable seems going from the place where is the power on button

The arrow is pointing to the antenna wire that plugs into the wifi card. Not related to starting. If you completely severed this cable, you can repair by soldering and taping. But for your starting issue, check that the connection wire between the power button on the top of the laptop is connected to the motherboard. Sometimes it is white plug and sometimes it is a ribbon cable. To remove the top of the laptop, you would have disconnected this cable. On some machines, you have to make the connection before snapping the top back down and on some the connection is accessed after placing the top and before snapping down the keyboard.
