Laptop melting is it worth reparing

  futurekid 18:52 21 Oct 2006

i have had a laptop for years and it has overheated hundreds of times and as a result the pc goes off the battery is broken etc.

Now my mate can replace the thermast thing (when it tells to switch fan on

but he says there might be a risk of the motherboard not working after

and the processor is melting

so is it worth going ahead with the new thermast

With laptops at the present price, if yours is old, then the answer in my opinion is No

Modern laptops are not only a great deal cheaper, but the batteries last a lot longer and are far cheaper.

For instance I replaced my battery in a three year old computer, and it cost me £109.

I could have bought a newer Laptop for £300+. but as mine was a pentium 2000 and quite rugged, I bought the battery.It had originally cost £1500
All the best.
