New Student, New Laptop, Broken Laptop


I hope I am at the right spot for this. I have recently became a full time student to earn a degree in Nursing. I spent what money I had to purchase a laptop due to attempting to use my iPad for classes but quickly realized how bad I actually needed a laptop. I had done a lot of research before submitting my purchase and waited for it to come in the mail. I received it this Monday. I got the laptop all set up and prepared for class, emails ready to go, all the Microsoft tools, etc then 2 days later. I said it! 2 days later, I came home from class and went to hang up my back pack and it didn't hang. The bag fell to the ground and I am amazed at the amount of damage because it didn't fall very far or hard. I contacted HP to tell them what happened and attempted to get a repair. I didn't purchase a warranty because i purchased it from my school website, so I am out of pocket for the repairs, shipping, and taxes. The repair alone will be $300. I haven't received my student loans, I used what money I had to buy this and I just don't know what else to do! I would be sooo grateful for the hand. I plan to pass it forward once I get my finances aligned. Thank you for your time! God bless
