 Turns out it was a loose keyboard cable, must have happened during shipping. 
I've reconnected the cable and now it's booting. The battery I have does work 
though, or at least I can start the precisionbook with the battery inserted.

 Another thing I noticed was that there are 4 LCD connectors on the 
motherboard, two identical pairs of which one pair is occupied. Should one be 
able to find a 14" screen, I suspect the 12" can be replaced without any 


Ps. I also have the 1Mb cache option installed.
