I accidentally dropped or otherwise damaged my computer. Now it’s having problems. Can it be repaired?
It may be possible to repair it, but we will have to diagnose it and assess the issue(s) involved. We can also use as much information as we can get about what caused the damage and how the computer is acting now. Don’t use your computer if it’s damaged as that may make the damage worse.
