I just joined and I'm not entirely sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but it kind of has to do with purchasing a new computer, so I hope this spot will work.
I have a laptop which is approximately three years old. For quite some time I thought there was something wrong with my charger, however, after consulting a computer guy in the area, he said its actually the spot where I plug the charger into the computer that is the problem. My dad, thinking that he can fix anything, decided to take the bottom of the laptop and mess around with the stuff inside, in hopes that he could fix the charger problem. The charger did seem to work a bit better when he finished, but half the keyboard didn't work. We took it back to this computer guy and he says the motherboard is fried.
My question is, considering the computer is three years old...is it worth spending the almost $300 to get it fixed or should I just start saving for another one?
He has a used desktop he's willing to sell to us for $125 but that's older than the laptop. I'm really just not sure what to do here and could use some advice from people who are more computer savvy than I am.
Anything you could give me would be extremely helpful!
Thank you so much!!
