Answers :

If the unit sparked, then the motherboard is definitely bad. Also it could have taken out the memory. Then there might be residual effects after repair the unit. I usually advise my clients to purchase a new laptop, rather then pouring money into an older unit. Laptop prices have come down, here are some examples:
