Been on fedi long enough now that I'm wondering if I can turn my busted old laptop into a Linux machine somehow🤔. It's an old Lenovo y410p, a solid laptop at the time with a really shitty screen hinge. I encountered 3 in the wild and they all had the same broken hinge. I haven't looked at it in years but I think the hinge eventually messed up the bit of the board that the charging port is attached to. One day I turned it on, there was a spark and a zap and it was dead.


Probably outside my ability to fix but maybe something can be replaced, does seem like there are some spare parts out there for the model
