£125 is not a bad price. I got one repaired for £75 but I had put two customers in touch with the shop who each bought laptops so the guy owed me a favour! You could do it yourself but dismantling a laptop without breaking it is quite tricky - good luck
I had fun bringing a very old, very dead laptop to life again, after downloading the service Manual for it. I had never done anything like it before, but only took a few days to get it up and running! I replaced CMOS battery, hard drive and changed CD drive for a DVD drive - even got it on-line wireless, using a dongle and my BT HomeHub.
I'm a 75yrs young whizkid, so if I can do it, you can too!!
Hi, sorry to say No, I don't think so. It has the Dir list on screen, but I am not familiar enough with DOS to actually get it moving along. I only got my first PC in 2000, so anything earlier than '98 is beyond my capabilities.
If it was purely 'mechanical-electrical' I probably could fix it.
