A former friend put her laptop in its protective carrying case some months ago and propped it up on its edge between an armchair and a case in my house. I later moved the case and the laptop tipped onto its side still in its protective carry case. I simply stood it on edge again and thought no more of it. The friend took it home and then the next day told me it was broken and that a mutual friend had told her it couldn't be fixed. I mentioned what had happened and she thinks it is my fault that it broke. It has now emerged that our mutual friend had said she could fix it, so I don't know what is going on. Could such a simple thing as a laptop tipping over in its case break it?
