And, will cost you an arm and a leg to get the tools and training to do just that by that person's own time.
That person should just replace that Laptop with a way newer one. Besides, I think that the screws are not holding the trap in a tight and un-moving condition any more. Once lifted from the desk, it gets to jiggle and the illegal internal tampering security feature of Windows automatically gets it to make an emergency ShutDown of the current session. Fan(s) might have stopped(electrical faulty wiring) also. Then, the overheat did force Windows to urgently use its preventive auto-shutdown to safeguard the unit from melting inside parts of it.
As you can see, the extensive use of that unit, bare all kinds of problems not experienced in much newer units. Time went by and, the inevitable happened. Time to purchase a new one and do a data transfer in between HDD.
In today's computers, 1 human year is the equivalent of about 10 years for these IT units. 4 years = 40 years of age + extensive hours of use onto it, could send it all the way to a whopping 6 years equivalence in age(60 years).
Just thought of throwing extra experience like knowledge into the decision making of efagan8210's current situation. Laptop used for work? Then the need for that decision is for today or tomorrow at the latest. If not, well, whenever the time permits.
