Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone could help me with my laptop. The volume button broke and now i cant hear anything. I tried the volume control and still cant hear anything. I took it to best buy and they told me that they would have to replace the motherboard and were charging me 650 to fix it. if someone could please help me!!!

Try another location for an opinion. I would never rely on only one estimate, especially Best Buy.

What brand is it?

If the phycical volume control buttons are broken the only fix to get it back to original is to replace the system board as it is likely no one will be able to get the parts to fix it. There may be a way to bypass the broken button but I'd have to actually see it to see if it's possible.

This is a good point by Tek_Freek. Best Buy tends to "overstate" issues that could have much simpler fixes.

If you have any tech-savvy friends, they may be able to simply buy replacement parts off of eBay or a parts retailer and fix it for you.
