Here, I would like to elaborate my HP laptop, which got damaged recently. A couple of months ago, when I was working on a project in the night and I was using the laptop. while lying on the bed. I fell asleep while I was working and the next day when I got up in the morning, I tried to switched on my laptop but there was no display then I realized that I kept my laptop whole night.

I got worried because my all-project work depended on it. After sometime I called my friend and told her whole situation.

She advised me to visit the near hp service center and on that afternoon, I went to service center when I reached computer expert said that laptop is overheated and need to be replaced some parts.

When I asked about the repair cost then he told me that approximately 6000 rupees and I felt really bad at time because I had not told anything about my laptop to my parents then I thought how I will manage the repair cost.  It was very difficult task for me.

Then the next day I went to my friend and borrowed some amount of money and I gave money to the technician then finally my laptop got repaired and I took a deep breath.

Nowadays, I am very careful about my laptop. This was the time when my laptop broke down.
