Since time passed all bets are off that there was not something else that was aging and now failed.
The thing is, repair is often more than what I can find replacement laptops for. Just today Woot has this for cheap.
How much is this repair costing?
Basically my lapto screen broke and I took it to a repair shop to fix. The first time the guy managed to fix it perfectly fine but he wanted money which I didn't have at the time so I told him to put the old screen back until I get the money . He did so. This was end of sept .this month I took back to the same guy and he says yes he will fix it ..only to go back and collect it he now tells me the motherboard is broken and that my laptop is now trash. When he fixed it the first time it worked fine and motherboard was not mentioned.. Could he have damaged my laptop and now trying to make me feel that I did something wrong for waiting till I got some money to pay him?
