A screw inside my notebook has come loose and caused a shortcircuit.
One component is visible blown, however I have no idea what component it is as there is no reference whatsoever. I have a picture which I can send if needed.
The component looks the same as FL835 or FL761.
Does anybody know what FL stands for?

In the repair shop they told me that they can't repair and only want to replace the complete motherboard.

If I'm not mistaken, FL stands for FILTER. In electronics, a filter is a coil of wire that smooths out a ripple on a DC voltage or current. You'd be very lucky if that is the only part blown.

I have a picture of the component next to the screw, you can see it is split in two.

As I said, you'd be lucky if that is the only damage done. The reason is damage may have been done to the regulator(s) for this filter. Voltage spikes could have damaged parts beyond this point. Even to the CPU. My advice replace the motherboard and avoid future problems with this board. Even if other parts are not blown at this moment, I can assure you they have been weakened.
