I managed to bugger the motherboard on my ACER laptop by plugging the power lead into a USB port (I know it was stupid but in my defence it was dark and I was stood the other side of the laptop). Anyway I took it to a local PC shop who sent it away somewhere down south who after 5 weeks sent it back saying that it wasn't economical to repair. Estimate being about £3/400.The laptop cost just under £1k a couple of years ago. Any suggestions? Funny ones acceptable as it might cheer me up.
