Right, my laptop screen's backlight has fuxxed, and my laptop's fan has decided it no longer wants to run, causing the laptop to overheat and die, is it worth me paying to get it fixed, or should I just buy a new laptop?

At the current time, I'm needing a laptop more than a desktop PC, so please don't bother posting telling me not to bother with laptops.

I don't know if that would matter, if this is happening:

and my laptop's fan has decided it no longer wants to run, causing the laptop to overheat and die


I would get a new laptop.

Yeah, but it kind of sounds like it's an old laptop, how long have you had the thing?

I suggest you to spend money to get a new laptop. But that depend on how much you can spend for it!

Yea, I think I'm more likely to get a new laptop, although, I _could_ get a desktop, seeing as laptop's aren't built to stay on for ages...and I need a pc for downloa - errrr I mean, "buying" things...

So yea, I'm likely to keep the current laptop, and fix it up after I've bought a new laptop/desktop pc, depending on how much either would cost.

Well ive had mine for over 3 years and it isnt that outdated...i suggest fix it for alot cheaper, then wait till technology advances..because if you have my luck, once you purchase it, a brand new thing will appear..

you could always use an external fan (aka a regular fan built for us, humans!) and have that blowing on it in a cooler environment to make sure that if indeed it is cool the computer still has some life in her, eh? Sounds like a lot is going wrong all at once however, so I'd suggest like all the others to invest in an up to date computer and nice cooling system. Good luck with your troubles Wink
