I need your help...

A while back, my laptop was ruined when too much electrical power surged through the AC adapter and into the laptop. I could probably get it fixed for about $300, but with that and the search for another battery for it (for which I have to special order -- HP no longer wishes to acknowledge the existence of my model of notebook computer, the Pavilion n3210, which is only three years old) it's not worth my while to spend the money on repair.

But I don't want to throw the thing away. That would be a waste. So I plan to sell the thing. I could use the money to help pay for a new laptop. But I don't know how to go about this. I have been told that I could get more money if I can get it disassembled and sell the individual parts. Which include a 5GB hard disk, 92MBs or RAM, a AMD K6 processor 433MHz (hopefully it hasn't been damaged), and possibly the screen and CD-ROM drive (24x I believe). If so, I need to find someone who can take it apart for me. Otherwise, I can try to sell it, noting that it has been electrically damaged and giving an estimate on what the repair will cost the purchaser out-of pocket.

If anyone can help me out, please respond.
