Help to buy a new computer

Hi everybody. I am a young soon to be student needing your help to buy a new laptop. I will be starting university soon and I desperately need an actual working laptop. My current one is totally busted. It doesn't hold any charge and gives me the blue screen of death pretty much every day.  I should also mention it was second hand itself and I have had it for about 7 years now and have looked after it very carefully.

I am not in a position to buy it myself. I work a low paying job to make some money however I have family members to support. I don't come from a rich family or even an average family. We are poor and it's just my mothers income as well as mine at home. 

I don't expect anything honestly however I thought I at least owe it to myself and more importantly my mother to at least try so she doesn't have to worry about somehow helping me. She has many health problems.

Words could not express how grateful I would be for any donation, no matter how small. I am simply asking, or perhaps you could say begging, for any help at all. Thank you.
