yep, ebay IS too radical-I assumed I would need one of the exact T&T model in order for it to fit and work, and its never on there. the laptops out of guarantee and is no longer being manufatured. I dont know any good component websites, but if the parts are custom made, Im probably better off emailing the manufacturer instead. will wait and see :O thanks
I didnt want to be ordering from abroad, as I didnt think it would be so hard to find a fan for the model model I have here, but after alot of searching (and emailing a few fan companies, including the original fan manufacturer for MSI, T&T, who had none) - I finally realised that its the only way to get one. There were 3 official MSI fans of the exact model I needed listed on ebay, all from the same shop in china (!) but it has very good reviews, so Ive decided to give them a go. heres hoping it arrives in one piece, before xmas, and lasts for at least a year. checking out alot of youtube videos after searching for "VR601 sounds like an old car", it might not, as these official fan are prone to breaking, and making a constant buzzing sound thereafter, but ive not got many other options for purchasing. I was surprised that I could not find any third party unofficial fans that could fit in my laptop anywhere, only the official MSI T&T branded fans.
thanks for the replies :)
