    My sons were being typical teenagers the other day and one threw a hole punch at the other.

    Unfortunately the hole punch hit the screen of our HP DV6-3033SA laptop.

    We have had the screen replaced which works fine. The issue we now have is that the laptop works fine on battery power. If it boots up on mains power a message pops up stating that there is an issue with the fan and the computer will switch off after 15 seconds.

    I took the laptop back today and it has be stripped down. The shop although get the same error can't find any thing wrong inside. Everything is connected correctly and in place.

    Anybody have any ideas what we can try to get it working on mains power again?

    It is barely a year old so I don't really want the expense of a new laptop just yet.

    If it's under a year old, it should be under warranty. Have it serviced or replaced.

    Unless you bought an accidental damage warranty, you're not going to get it repaired for free.
