Ruining lap tops

My wife just had two laptop computers ruined using the 175 w mobile power inverter. One of the computers was almost new , but bought at circuit city, and they are going out of business. My wife is desperate because she has all her college info on the laptops. Why did this happen?

175 W inverter is not enough power for your computer and most of the cheap inverters do not put out a true sine wave. Buy one rated at least at 400w. Then it will output continuously at 300w. That should be sufficient for your computer. Your 175 w inverter is overtaxed then the voltage drops increasing amperage and burning things out.

Jazzy Select controller on-off switch (push button) very difficult to operate. Must push button down with much force to get it to work. Can I get the controller apart without ruining it?

The display on top of that joystick controller is essentially a fancy decal. it can just be peeled off. Usually when the symptom you're describing is happening it is because the button on the underside of the decal is wearing out. This can't be fixed. The joystick face must be replaced. However, you should be able to get this from a certified Pride dealer for 60 or 70 bucks versus several hundred for a new joystick controller.

Shut the lap top off completely do not use untill you replace the cooling fan. If you use it you will ruin it. You will have to have someone that knows what they are doing to replace this fan. For the sake of your sanity take it in and get a new fan installed now. John

Water was poured on the laptop

Ouch, you really should pull the battery and disassemble the laptop and dry the component ASAP. Water is really bad for your laptop. You didn't list the model, so can't help you with the disassembling instruction, but in general, the disassembling starts with the top.

Compatible laptop sceens

You won't know until you dismantle and remove both LCD screens.
They could have different video connector and power connector for the inverters.
The best bet is to buy a new LCD screen or if the LCD screen is OK but the backlight CCFL lamp is worn out or the inverter is faulty, then the CCFL lamp or inverter can be replaced fairly cheaply.
