hey, im kinda new to this site,

and i need advice kinda urgently

last month my laptop got ran over by a bus (dont ask), and one of my mates told me that if i kept most of the parts, i could rebuild it.

now the laptop is a HP pavillion DV6000, and i think most of the main parts survived, but the things i know didnt were:-

casing
screen
keyboard
charger
battery

was just wondering if somebody could point me in the right directions, for the parts i need, and possibly help me out along the way,

Thanks

It will be cheaper to buy a new machine a qucik estimate on those parts costs;

Shell - $200+
Screen - $175+
keyboard - $50
charger - $50+
Battery - $75+
Total = $550

Its worth it to get a new machine the prices i estimated there are low, because im willing to bet it would need a motherboard as well and your looking at $350+ for a mobo for that (thats ebay price) HP price would be closer to $500.

I fix laptops for a living, and with that kind of damage you MIGHT be able to get it back together, but it wouldent be a laptop anymore it would be a desk bound frankenstein.

You may be able to find replacement parts available on ebay, here's one that may fit your purpose:

http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-Pavilion-DV6000-For-parts-repair_W0QQitemZ220338967345QQcmdZViewItem
Thats an option, i dident think of that.

But still you would probobly need 3 machines, since im willing to bet the only thing salvagable from your laptop would be the battery, cpu, MAYBE ram, and the rest is done. i think its more trouble then its worth personally...

dv6000's are sub $800 now anyways.

Try to buy a used identical model and just put your old hard drive in it (if it survived). That would be the easiest way to get bact to where you were before the rogue laptop slaughtering bus incident.
