Sorry you probably need to replace the laptop since replacement would most likely cost less that paying someone to fix the Compaq. He broke something when he tried to disassemble the laptop. Since everything is mounted on the motherboard it might require a new motherboard to fix the problem.

You can probably use a USB hard drive adapter to salvage the data on the hard drive.

Good luck
