HP Maybe Dead Laptop
So i was an idiot and punched my laptop. I know i deserve what ive gotten, but the darn thing was $1400 last year, and i just cant believe i killed it...
Punched the laptop
1) The laptop will power on and work perfectly, HOWEVER if i so much as touch it, it will shut off.
2) The laptop will not except 2 gigs of ram anymore. If i put 2 1GB sticks in, it only recognizes 1 stick.
Things ive done-
Ive taken the laptop apart completely and isolated the mobo. Ive manged to get it running. When i so much as touch the mobo a little bit, it turns off.
Im feeling like there is some kind of hairline fracture in the mobo. To me tho, with computers my whole life its been either their dead, or their not...
The model is an HP Dv9644ca.
Any help or ideas you guys have would be appreciated. Is this worth getting looked at by a pro?
