Her teenage son grabbed the laptop by the screen to turn it. He grabbed to hard and the screen cracked. Immediately, the laptop went haywire. We did not get into what "haywire" meant. Anyway, the repair shop she took it to said that when the screen cracked it leaked into internal parts causing it to short out. They said they would have to replace the screen and then run diagnostics to see what the leakage shorted, that the repair could be very expensive.
Is this repair shop full of bull? And on a more serious side, can a laptop screen "leak"? And what will the "leakage" do?
Only way to learn is to ask. So I am asking.
