TBF if its the motherboard your better off chucking it in the bin
unless someone has one with a duff screen that they no longer want.
If either Mboard or screen is blown your looking at 50% of the value
so its not economical to repair. Having said that we use these people
now and again http://www.acrc.co.uk/
they seem to be fairly cheap and
they will collect and return for you.
Arch Linux is an independent i686-optimized community distribution for
intermediate and advanced Linux users. Utilising a Rolling Release
System packages are regularly updated and an ISO release is just a
snapshot to the stable packages at that time. So there's no need for a
fresh install the command 'pacman –Syu' upgrades the whole system.
