Titel:

My computer started smoking and no longer turns on, now what?

Tekst:

As I was putting the computer to sleep I noticed that it was smoking.  The computer seemed to go to sleep fine  but now will not turn on.  I know the hard drive still works because I was able to use it in a friend's machine.  Before the incident with the smoke the battery had become less reliable and the fan seemed like it made too much noise even when the computer was not in use.  I tried getting a different charger (as customer support suggested) but that did not help.

From the research I have done I think I need a new powerboard or motherboard (I'm not sure if they are separate).

What are my options?
