I decided. I'm going to sell the electrically fried laptop (too much juice ran through the adapter) on eBay as salvage. Hopefully I can get $200 for it and someone can take it apart or repair it as he wish. Well, I was but then my dad said that if I get an repair estimate and it is reasonable, he'll buy it off of me and get it fixed himself for fall. I just went to Baltimore and got a newer Compaq notebook. It's a work in progress.
