x14 R1, not booting

Alienware x14

Alienware x14

I just replaced the screen as the backlight died and when doing so I made sure the laptop was off and battery disconnected. After finishing the replacement I turned it back on but it didn’t boot. All the light turn on and the fans too but then the power button flashed red twice and fans stop and restart. This happens over and over. How can I fix it?

Did the system boot up and work with an external monitor before you replaced the screen -- or more generally, what led you to replace the screen?  LED backlights are generally more reliable than the other possible cause -- a failure on the mainboard itself.
