First check the circuit board, making sure none of the components bent bad or broke off. If you are good with soldering gun and epoxy glue, you can clue the end and solder the connections. Otherwise you will have to buy new card.

Having been in the flooring installation end of the business for over 20 years have you considered rubber mat flooring. It is about an inch thick and has interlocking tabs. Maybe I can find a hyper link.
Additionally on the market is a vinyl carpet tile...carpet on top....vinyl on the bottom...with a thin dense done inbetween This is a very popular choice due to the ease of installation...using a peel and stick glue. It allows you to adhere the carpet tile to the floor and if future stains or issues arise you can take the carpet tile up and replace it. Very comfortable under foot....used on many commercial applications and now available at retail outlets like LOWES and home depot
Search the web for carpet tile...and releaseable adhesive for carpet tile.
You can compare prices vs wood, but I would not choose a wood floor personally.
Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]
It sometimes takes a 2 grunt pull to remove the end caps and bearings from the agitator (called the beater bar). I have had to use a flat blade screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from a beater bar. Be careful not to stab your hand with the screwdriver (It HURTS!!!) Once you get the end caps and bearings off, clean the hair and carpet fibers from the ends of the beater bar and bearings and end caps. If the bearings don't turn easily, dribble some rubbing alcohol on them (I use a spray bottle filled with alcohol) and spin them until they spin freely. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Put a drop or two of light machine oil in each bearing (3 in 1 oil will do), and spin the bearings to distribute the oil and ensure they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the vacuum head and hose for clogs. Push the bearings and end caps back on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar (with a new belt). Reinstall the foot plate, and your machine should run like new
Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!
Mine did that once and we were missing the filter part on the end of the shampoo hose attachment.fits on the end of the hose. Bought a new one at the Kirby store for cheap. It looks like a filter screen and without it just seems to soak the carpet without foaming up or cleaning it very well.
Stand vacuum up and with it plugged in. Rotate knob between carpet and bare floor and back 5 times leaving it on carpet when finished. Rotate vacuum back from upright position and lay vacuum on the floor, rotating it onto its side. Turn vacuum on.
