I have a 4 year old laptop that is broken. There is something wrong with the battery and the power thingy that attached inside the case to plug the regular battery into is also broken and thus does not work.I tried to unscrew the case to repair it but suffice it to say that did not work and I am concerned that I might have made other issues by doing that. This has sat for like 1.5 years now and I just thought now to ask if someone here does laptop repair. Would pay shipping both ways and send a game or whatever. Let me know if anyone has ideas.

I had a laptop go bust, and it took me a long time to learn how to take it apart. I rendered it useless in my attempts, but it wasn't a great laptop anyway and I learned a ton.

The trick is that the main screw is under the keyboard. There's usually only a couple pinch-tabs to get the keyboard off the laptop.
I still have most of the pieces if you need any. (2Ghz cpu, CD Rom, a battery -- no guarantee that it works but will send at cost of shipping)

Much appreciated-as I said, I think the primary issue is that the power pin inside the laptop (that you plug the battery into), has somehow snapped off its little electrical housing board. That is the thing that might make everything work if fixed.

Ah, didn't see that. It is exactly what happened to mine. I could never find a replacement part for it.

My boy knocked it off the coffee table and it, of course, managed to land on the power adapter which broke the metal contact inside the laptop.

It's a Compaq isn't it? I have to get mine fixed as well.

If he doesn't go for that I could be interested.
