Hello, recently there was a power surge/power outage and my after that my laptop stopped working. I googled it and tried some methods where it says that the battery may be a problem or the cables but it didn’t work. Took it to a guy to see it and he said the problem is at the chipset and he needs to take 200$ to fix it. Is it even possible to fix a chipset and if it is, can i do it alone? Btw my laptop is MSI GF63 8RC - the gtx 1050 version.

Sounds about right, especially when MoBo is dead.

Is it even possible to fix a chipset
Yes. If MoBo is dead, all that needs to be done, is replacing a MoBo.

can i do it alone?
Unless you know exactly the specific MoBo that goes into your laptop + know where to buy one + have the knowledge of your laptop disassembly, parts change and correct assembly - you can do it on your own.

If any of the listed is mystery to you, you'd be much better off paying to fix it. Since else-ways, you could screw up the part replacement and ruin the new part as well, costing you even more time and money.

Thank you very much! In this case I will take it to a specialist to fix it.
