Never toss those parts out. It can be a paper weight for now, but you may have use for the RAM, CPU, fans etc. in the future to repair a friends laptop.

I wonder if there is a short on the motherboard somewhere. I've always been concerned about "shorts" when it comes to laptops because with a battery they don't seem properly "grounded". So if something shorts the motherboard, how do you troubleshoot it?

Good luck anyways, I hope you learned something after all of this. well, besides don't purchase HP's anymore.
