  • how fuct am I?

    last night my hp laptop with vista went kaput. It froze up and then would not restart, the display looked plaid and it would jump to the blue screen of death. I got it into recovery mode and reset it to original factory settings. When I tried to start it again, boom plaid to blue screen of death.

    any chance I can get it back?

    Might be a power/voltage issue or another hardware problem.

      tell me more. My card always has to be manipulated to work just right. So potentially a new cord could be the solution?

        The problem is this is a laptop. Not as easy and cheap to diagnose and repair. Doing it yourself will be fairly difficult. I hate to say it but in this instance taking it to a PC Repair place is your best bet.

        FTR I don't think it is the chord, as the battery is obviously working/charged. My guess the issue of power distribution is also what makes the chord not work, an internal hardware problem.

            I agree with ICT. It could be a lot of different things and it's probably hardware. Laptops are a bitch to work on and if you don't know what you are doing, you'll end up with a pile of parts.

              it is a little over 4 years old, is it going to cost a ton to have someone work on it? Should I even bother?

                It depends on what you use it for. If you can get by with something on the low end, you'd be better off getting a new one.
                Cost per year is a good way to guess at those things. 4 year old laptop may only be good for another year or two.
                New one should be good for 5. So use the cost per year to determine the right answer.

                  I have a laptop that is required to be propped up on the back left corner to get the screen to be back lit...fortunately, I pretty much have the laptop for guest use in addition to a porn dump

                  if the laptop is used for any substantial needs, you should save yourself some time and effort and replace the damn thing

                      Honestly you can spend like $500 and buy an Acer or Asus at Best Buy. Will be plenty of power for 90% of users. You'll also get Windows 7.

                          That might have been useful information to tell me the last time I used that SOB.
