Hi, guys,
	One problem I ran into once was a mechanical issue where the cable
wouldn't mate properly.  Check the connector on the laptop and make sure
that the little wire things that comprise the connection are actually
there and formed correctly.  I had one that was squished or something
and wouldn't make contact properly.  It would work sometimes when I got
the connector seated "just wrong", but not normally.

This is my only possible contribution to this particular issue.  Good
