How? Extremely bad luck.

Sometimes a current limiting resistor will fail resulting in a cascade of subsequent failures.

Better luck with your new computer

Motherboard replacement is the only repair method that is practical. Even then it's probably cheaper to replace the entire laptop.

Good luck
