Need to really keep some money now for the big hardware restoration for my laptop! I can hear the sound of the fan, really loud and clear. I guess the fan is starting to die. The longest time I will give to her is maybe another 6 more months. Hopefully I am wrong or else, my money will be flying off again! It is not cheap to change to fan alone..I remember one of my friend last time told me, if u touch or changed something inside a something especially if the item is quite old in age, the parts inside will starts to spoil even thought there is no problem at first. Once you touch them, all will follow as they are all interconnected. Hopefully what my friend said is untrue or else I will be screaming!
