    Does it make any noises when you turn it on?

    Terry5880, the laptop was run over. The laptop doesn't work right and you know there is physical damage. It should be clear that someone will have to open it up to evaluate the damage.

    Yea thats very clear just strange that it seems like graphics card rather than just screen just gonna sell as spairs or repirs I think

    If it's not making noises at all (I.e. no fans) then it's an issue with the motherboard. Which is expensive.

    Yeah my laptop from '04 I was upgrading the CPU and cracked the motherboard in 2010 and I had to put out 100-200 for one best bet would be find a used laptop if you dont have the money to get a new one right now and take out your harddrive and use that one and use the new/used HDD from the one you bought as a back up
