I love these forums I used all the help to build my GREAT! gaming computer. Anyway now I need help with something new. I know someone who owns a Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop
and it is overheating and crashing after less than an hour. Both Best Buy and Dell say that it is the Heatsink/Fan that needs to be replaced and Dell told her that it would be $450.
So my question is could it be anything else? If not how hard is it to replace a heatsink/fan for this system. I am thinking of doing it for her but I have never messed with a laptop before, all I know is desktops. Any advice would be a great help. Also any links to websites that give help or instructions or parts would be great. Thanks!
