I am aware that my laptop is quite old and out of warranty but it works very well, has stacks of information on it and I like it. I probably need a new fan and I would like to change the keyboard (a few keys are very loose). Based on the information above, firstly, can I purchase a new fan and a new keyboard, secondly, is it advisable to try and repair the laptop myself, and thirdly, if not, where can I get the repairs carried out?
Thanks for your help so far. I don't think that there is any doubt that the fan needs replacing along with the keyboard. What I now need to establish is whether it is a job for a relatively novice technical person like myself. The laptop is quite old and it would probably be best to buy a new one which I will do in the future however, for now I need to repair what I have (Tons of data to retrieve etc.). Based on the product information below, is it possible to buy a replacement fan and keyboard? Are the items I need specific to my product and model? Where in the UK can I buy the items? If I can buy replacement parts, I will attempt to fit them myself. I'm sure there are instructions or videos available to help me. My product details are as follows: Product Name: notebook G-62-452SA Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) My Serial No. is [Personal Information Removed] Product No. XF452EA#ABU Thanks Rob
