i have completely fucked my laptop, help required

Recommended Posts

The inside bits that make it work are all good, my problem lies with the actual plastic case of the laptop. The screen and the plastic that surrounds it is broken. The screen has a crack in it and also 3 large black circles where the pixels (?) are fucked. The plastic top half of the laptop doesn't stay up because the hinges have cracked off, or rather the shell has cracked. the hinges are still there but are useless because the only thing keeping the screen on is the lead that runs through the ex-hinge - it's like if you stood on a landmine and your leg blew up except it was still attached by a tendon.

the reason it is fucked is taht i dropped it several times when i was pissed.

SUMMARY: fucked outer casing of laptop caused by being pissed, can I buy a new top half of my laptop?

i don't have house insurance. This is how retarded I am - if I take the hard drive and extra RAM i gave my laptop out of it, can I basically put it in another laptop and then it will be like my broken laptop? does that make sense?

If you put the hard drive in another laptop your data will be there but a lot of the other shit won't work. It might boot, i don't know. The RAM will only work if the other laptop uses the same kind. Have you tried phoning the manufacturer and getting a quote for the repair? probably cheaper than buying a new one.

If the screen is fucked then you're going to have one hell of a hefty bill (probably not far off the cost of a new laptop... sometimes - bizarre as it seems - it costs more... depending entirely on the age of it). It's basically top of the list for the most expensive laptop parts. If you can find another laptop on ebay that's identical to yours then you'll be able to strip it. If not, the cheapest option will be to get a new laptop. If the bottom half is fine then don't worry about your data. you'll be able to use a cable to connect your laptop to a monitor and just shove it onto an external drive to transfer onto your new one. Pretty straight forward stuff.
