Gateway Solo 1450
This is my brother's laptop, but I told him I'd fix it for him.
It seems that the left bracket holding the monitor on has came off, or the monitor plastic has been cracked. You can open the laptop and push it back it, yet when you close it, the monitor pops off. Here's some pictures.
Also, something else has been acting up on it.
You can boot it up fine and work on it for about 2-4 hours, then it suddenly turns dreadfully slow. It takes about 3 hours to open IE, 4 hours to boot, etc. It stays that way for a week, then it goes back to it's normal speed, then slows down again. I personally have NO idea what could be causing this. I've reformatted it a couple times.
Would it be cheaper to just buy another laptop? This one does have some nice specs though....
Any help would be appreciated.
