My main laptop has been out of order for quite a long time now. I opened it to clean it from the inside, put it back together, turned it on, I got an error message saying something isn’t connected properly and Windows won’t boot up.
Why are laptops still complicated? The task of opening up a laptop for a periodic cleaning shouldn’t be risky, time consuming or complicated or end up affecting the software (at least in my opinion).
So I sent it for repairs at a local laptop repair shop. It’s probably a disconnected hardware connector that I mistakenly took apart without noticing, even though I was extremely careful.
I hope they don’t charge me a premium for this. I wouldn’t have thought of repairing it if it wasn’t so important to me.
