Can you tell us which model you have.


Not sure the exact model, but I saw once it was "MacBook Pro 13" 2010 Mid"

Sadly, I think you'll need at least a new logic board. You might find looking for a used MacBook Pro as a cheaper option here and transfer your drive or files to it. As we don't know what else is damaged here.

It might be wise to first see if you can recover your data which is on the drive by seeing if a second Mac can access the files using an adapter like this: Startech 2.5" SATA to USB adapter

Yes, I'm searching the used logic board as like you said just afraid it wasn't only the board was affected, thanks Dan!
