I dropped my old laptop bag on the sand near the coast in Albania, and now find myself without a working machine. I'm slowly working my way towards Tirana (the capital) and hope to find a shop that will repair the damaged LCD. As for the damage, well the computer turns on but the screen stays black, and only "some" of the blinking lights flash on (others stay off). The laptop is old and is on its last legs but since I am dependant on my laptop for travel purposes I need an immediate fix (either a repair shop or a new computer). My 2 questions are:

1) Where is the best place to easily repair a damaged LCD display for an old laptop in Tirana, Albania?

2) Where in these 3 Balkan countries (Albania, Macedonia, or Bulgaria) should I purchase a new simple PC laptop? I don't need anything super just a slim, wide screen machine with focus on memory (1-2GB RAM), everything else is a luxary. I'm thinking Skopje, or Sofia might be the best places as they are the only capitals I'll be visiting before returning to Norway (and I don't want to buy anything there since it's so overpriced. I'm not sure whether it's cheaper to find a quality machine online (and have it shipped to the Balkans), or just buy it direct from a local shop.

Thanks

I think there are several computer shops in the GTC shopping center in Skopje, which is in the main square of the city, along the river, near the Stone Bridge. One of them is called Anhoch, or something like that. Sorry I can't be more specific!
