In the last two days when I turn it on it starts booting up but within one-five minutes the motor/fan/something inside that moves makes this really pathetic whirring sound and then stops completely, which turns off the computer.
Any ideas about what I need to do to fix it and how much that would cost? A new laptop is not in the immediate future. Should I just give it a funeral and live without the interwebz circa 1965?
(I know I should bring it to a shop but I haven't had the time. I wanted to see if anyone could diagnose it; without charging me $75 just to tell me it's not worth it!) TIA
