Special order

We can get repair parts such as LCD screens, internal power supplies and fans for many models. These are on a special order basis, and require a careful identification of the model and the exact part required. Special order parts require prepayment and are not returnable or cancellable after the order is placed.

In general, logic boards for laptops, while available, are too expensive to be worth replacing on older machines.
