Today, we learn what happens when you are a fucking moron and accidentally knock your fucking laptop off your fucking desk five weeks before you would have made the final payment on the loan that let you buy the fucking laptop.

It is by the grace of God, I think, that nothing else seems to be permanently damaged - I just have thin white bars across the middle of my screen, and the screen itself is loose in its casing (or the casing is loose around the screen, I'm not sure). The "mouse" button was stuck, and the casing of the bottom half of the clamshell was popped open, but I managed to fix those.

Another of the notetakers told me about the day that someone's bag fell apart and the laptop fell and smashed in the hallway. There were parts everywhere. *shudder*

I'm sorry 'bout your precioussssssssss.

Let me ask ze spouse if there's any hope....

He says that the white bars are probably due to some connecter being loose. It's probably repairable, he says. May require a screen replacement, depending on where it's loose. A tech might be able to fix a loose connection, if techs are allowed to mess with the screen interior.

Probably, he says, one/some of the sets of pins that go to the display.

He adds, it should be usable with an external display if it's the pins to the display -- if it's something wrong with the graphics card (as happened with his old one), it will also show the lines on the external display.
