Hi there and welcome

It will depend on how bad the damage is. Its not a question of if it can be repaired as any part can be replaced, but if the cost is worth it.

First, what happens now when you try to start it?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
