So I have an old broken laptop (cracked screen, dead inside) and I was wondering if there's anything cool to do with it, I've already salvaged the HD to use as an external for my new laptop but the rest of it is still there. Any ideas for fun stuff to do with it? If not I'll just defenestrate it or set it on fire.

It is possible to repair the screen, but if the motherboard is trashed then its best to just scrap it and move on.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

Salvage all the working parts. Never know when you may need it. Then you can set fire to the rest if you want.

I took everything of value (RAM, Harddrive and other stuff) buuut, I still have the laptop, I'm a pack rat when it comes to technology, I still have my old PS2 in a box and it has been dead for over 3 years

P.S. to anyone that might know, My laptop doesn't charge or turn on, what can it be? I think I might have burned something but I don't even know what.

Could be as something as simple as a bad power switch.


From the sounds of it though, likely a fried motherboard

Yank out the motherboard and hang it on your wall. Much better than paintings or posters...

Destroy it. Smash it. Cum on it.

That's freaking awesome, I'd love to do that to my laptop


Yeah, sometimes I wish I had a laptop just so I could conceal it in a pizza box
