The laptop stuff has hit the fan

I need some help if you are able provide me with some assistance.

I tried very hard too fix my laptop monitor myself, and after I was able to get the laptop monitor working but “off” color-wise, I took the cable out and tried to reset the monitor.

After several tries, the cord ripped–it was my stupid fault–but after another 90 minutes, I couldn’t fix the monitor again. So I’m without a functional laptop the day before the draft.

I don’t know what I’m going to do. A repair would take several days at the very least, and cost several hundred dollars. At this point the hard drive is salvageable, but for the present moment, I need a new laptop to do my blogging work.

It looks like $500 to $800 would get a serviceable laptop from Best Buy or Office Depot, and at this point, those are my most realistic options in terms of getting back to work in the next couple of days.

So I have to ask for monetary help. Https:// is most expedient, though other options (ex. work well.

If you can lend a hand, I would greatly appreciate it, no matter how small the donation. I’m in between a rock and a hard place with only my phone available, and as I have about $150 in my bank account, I need help here.

I’m very sorry for screwing up, and I hope we can address the computer issue both short and long term after I’m up and running again.

You make The Malik Report work, and right now I need your help to salvage the draft and/or free agency.  I promise to never try to fix my own computer again!

If you have any alternatives available, please do not hesitate to email me at

Thank you for your time and your readership.
