I dropped my laptop and the regular harddrive went dead but the sd drive is okay.I was able to abstract my info from the regular harddrive before it went completely down. The laptop runs hot right now. It seems to run hot all the time. The fan is running but its like it isn't doing any good. I can add a new harddrive but I am worried about the fan running like that.
I wonder if I should just buy another one.
There is some other info about the current one it has an sd drive but it is small so I am thinking of adding another one. I have to add theregular haddrive back because when it dropped it was totally destroyed and the sd is not big only 120 gb. I also have to get a new battery because when it dropped it killed the battery and I can only use when plugged in.
When I add up the parts, the new harddrive, the battery, and the SD harddrive, and copy of Windows, My replacement parts are going to come to about 500.00. There is another laptop I am looking at that is similar to mine and it cost about 1000.00.
I don't know if I should just replace the parts and take my chance on the overheating thing or buy another laptop all together. Looking for advice on which is the best option for the money. My worry is if I replace all the parts the overheating issue gets worse and ends up blowing out the whole laptop and I lose money on the replacement parts.
Thanks for the help.
