I was going through some old storage boxes and I found a laptop I put to the side a couple of years ago. I bought a HP Pavillion and used it for a few months before I knocked it off a table and broke the screen and power supply. I set it aside because I got a new work laptop and never got around to getting it fixed. Should I take it and get it fixed or would it be cheaper to do it myself?

What all is actually wrong with it? just the screen? what is wrong with the power supply? do you mean you need a replacement battery?

I snapped the DC prong inside the computer and the screen was shattered at the corner where it fell.

hmmm yeah it may cost you a couple hundred to fix it. the screen will be the biggest expense. Most screens are around 100-150, last i had checked. It is fairly easy to replace the screen though so if its a pretty modern laptop i would say go for it.

Yeah, I was checking online and saw some screens from $85-150 and the DC adapter is cheap. I can definitely replace the screen, but watching videos on fixing the adapter is intimidating.

That's about what you would expect from a local repair shop too screen would run up to 150, labor is under 100 unless you go to bestbuy or someone is trying to pull one over on you. Some of the systems are easyvto change the screen wihout damaging anything but others can be a bear because the base of the laptop has to come off to get to the screws on the front bezel. Chargers are usually less than 40 for genuine oem. If you want to let me know the model number from the sticker on the bottom of the laptop and I'll check my distributor for a screen price, they are usually fair priced and I haven't ever had any issues with them. One thing you may want to check is after you get the tip out of the computer use a small screwdriver and make sure the jack doesn't have any free play by lightly applying pressure to make sure it isn't broken, alot of times they will break and you end up looking at more money since they have to be soldered on often.

It is a HP Pavillion dv7-1135nr
s/n - CND839347N
p/n - FS129UA#ABA

To get down to that DC jack it looks like I have to take the entire laptop apart.

All they have are Matte screens, I didn't see glossy but they are 94.99 shipped. If you can get the old power adapter tip out using a small flathead and needlenose pliers you can check the jack without even taking the laptop apart by using that small flathead on the center plastic part of the jack where the tip was, general rule of thumb if it doesn't move then the jack is good.
