So I just dropped my laptop when it was open and now the screen is obviously broken, but what is visible is shaking and spinning up and down. Is the laptop toast or would that just be the screen? FML.

I would say the laptop has gone to be with Jesus.

:-( all my pictures from this past year are on there and not printed out AND videos. Can those be salvaged?

They might can be. I think all you need to do is transfer the harddrive to another laptop.

Mine does that and it is just the screen. I have to get it replaced but don't have $100 to replace it with.

So take it to best buy and they should be able to do that?

Even the shaking? Now it's just white, black and colorful.

Probably. Or a computer repair shop.

Best buy overcharges. I take my laptop to small time shops. Much more affordable. Unless you have a warantee through them. Then it is bueno.

Ohhhh. I missed that part. Yeah probably fucked the fan up. I mean you can always ask them if it could be an easy repair. They have to take the bottom off to replace the screen anyways. I have a really awesome repair shop here that will take it off right there just to see if they can fix it which is how I know mine is good. Just need a new screen.
