Hey, I created this account to post a problem. I’m new here and will probably just post this. So I accidentally plugged my headphones cable thing into the hole where my old wired keyboard plugged (now I have a new one that’s wireless). Problem is when I did that, my laptop instantly turned off, now I cant turn it on. I called a friend to see if he can help and he said it was short circuit. Idk what that is because I don’t know a lot about technology. Please help me solve the problem, thnx

Maybe he has headphones with DIN plugs. And plugged it into a (very very) old motherboard Mouse connector...

If I recall correctly, those old boards would not turn on without a keyboard connected....
And the Keyboard wont come on because the power feed blew thanks to the phones.....
