Hi. I arrived home from shopping yesterday to find my laptop (with the lid closed) sitting on our kitchen table covered in a light dousing of water, following a small leak from the roof. I felt relieved to see the lid down but even so, the water still managed to get in. There was evidence that the water damage was creeping from both sides of the screen - the screen is still viewable which is fortunate but it is slowly changing colour - from all white to solid and speckled grey. The bottom right hand screen almost looks blotchy/white and when the screen is tilted, it looks much worse. I also keep losing wireless internet connection, and the mouse touch pad/cursor keeps behaving erratically, which is really frustrating, even when I use a usb mouse (jumps around without any user input. Touchpad won't always allow upward movement, etc.). I have spoken to my insurance company as I have accidental damage cover (and it was a genuine accident) and am waiting for a call back, etc. I figure that the lcd screen needs to be replaced and the touchpad and wireless thing does too. The laptop is likely to be sent off to a company called BeValued for assessment to see if it can be repaired economically. It is an HP Pavillion G6032ea (now discontinued as per HP website). Does anyone have an idea as to how much it would cost to repair the items that I have mentioned just so that I can gauge the likely outcome of my claim. Thanks for you time.
