    Dude...trying to figure out what this power surge would burn out. To get the technical knowledge, what would be repaired not a "buy a new laptop". Feel kind of talked down too.
  3. Sincere apologies but the chances are that this power surge has killed the laptop entirely.
  4. Test the power supply first.

    Battery

    Motherboard

    CPU

    DRAM

    Video card if that laptop has upgradable video

    Display panel's back light

    LCD panel

    Hard disk drive(s) / SSD

    CD/DVD/BR drive if there is one

    Keyboard

    Any external devices that may have been attached to any ports when it happened

    Most, if not all, of these components are modular.
