Arduino mega fried/not working? Answered

Hey guys I was using ramps 1.4 for a CNC project of mine.When I was trying to upload a code for repatier when the ramps 1.4 was already connected to a 12v source, this forced my laptop to shutdown as well as forcing the mega to get heated up bad.
Now I think the laptop ram is fried cause the display is not working and mega (even though the lights are blinking),the code cannot be uploaded

You might be lucky and get away with buying a new atmega chip and maybe just maybe you didn't pooch the whole arduino board. I don't know how you would test that though.

Its too late now, but I would always use an isolator between my PC and a USB project. They cost about 40 dollars, but stop you killing your PC.

What's the question ?
