I am good with HP's not working because i have had three of them go wrong because the fans break, glog up, go wrong.

We are being taken for fools these days and the CMOS programs no longer warn about memory being bust or something else being wrong with the hardware like they once did and they just want you to throw it in the bin and to buy a new one.

Trying to open up a laptop to clean/replace something that should be a servicable part is no longer an option because these machines are not build anymore to be opened up by users, trims fall off, wire strips won't push back in, big trouble

If it is the fan then take it to the kitchen, warm up a kitchen knife on the gas ring and cut a hole out above the fan to see whats stopping it, try to fix it.

Now if the fan is past reapair then you can break out the plastic fan blades and glue an external UBB fan over the hole or option 2 is to make a bigger hole to replace the fan unit without trying to splt the machine in two.

I switched over to Dell, not the best move since my Alienware needed a new mothboard on month one and a screen on month ten (These are not cheap) and you need a srewdriver to get at the battery.

Another new Dell also needed a motherboard on month 6

The best one is a Dell XPS with a screen res of 3200 X 1800 and these realy are nice machines but for the money the old HP's were not all that bad apart from the fans.
