• This all happened a few months back, I was trying to connect my laptop to the television display to watch a downloaded 3D movie.

• So, this is how it all played out during the time I broke down my computer.• However, after I connected the HDMI cable at both sides, a video displayed on the TV for a while and suddenly turned off.

• I had a plan to watch other few movies as well. I had also invited few close friends.

• And I had prepared popcorn and paneer platters so that we could eat during watching a movie.

• But suddenly the HDMI port in my laptop broken, it ruined our plan.

• I tried to troubleshoot the issue but couldn’t manage to fix it.

• So, we thought of watching on the laptop’s 14-inch screen, but it also turned out to be malfunctioning. Because the main issue was the display card on the motherboard, it wasn’t responding.

• Overall, as we ended up canceling our plan, I felt very sad about it. And also, I apologize to my friends for the laptop’s problem. I will never forget the embarrassment I felt in front of my friends.

• After that I called on to the concerned person to see if it can be fixed in time and he said can’t say until.

• He checks which can take up to 3 hours.

• I was completely disappointed with how it turned out with no other choice left I went on with it and took my laptop for diagnosis.

• He then later told me that we have two options either change the motherboard or the graphic card but then there is no guarantee when my laptop may start working.

• First option may take up to 15 days as it needs to be ordered and the second one can be done in a day.

• After thinking it through I told him to place an order and meanwhile fixing it.

• I replanned it for Sunday as by that time laptop will be fixed and I can always replace it on the 15th day once the motherboard arrives.
