I just confirmed that the fan is not moving. Is there any way of replacing a laptop fan?

Allright. Windows Vista installation did recognize the hard drive. I installed and is working. But still has the overheating problem

comment Creating a Windows 7 USB installation disk on a Mac
I am using the dd command to copy the .iso image of the installation disk to the usb drive. It's taking so long! Over 40 minutes now.

It gets so hot that it automatically shuts down. I cannot determine where.

This actually makes sense since the computer was previously running on Vista. I will try installing Windows 7 after getting it.

Gotcha... It's not under warranty... I can format the hard drive using Gparted Live. However, when I use the WIN XP installation, it says that no hard drive was detected.

but, if the computer is turning on and I was able to use Fedora Live and get some stuff off the hard drive.... What could be the problem?

I am actually starting to think that it is also an overheating problem... was running diagnostics and the computer suddenly turns off

Haven't tried that... What tools would you recommend to perform sector checking?
