Hello again, I have this old laptop; it suffered a hard drive failure and I received it to have some fun with taking apart and modding as a science experiment of sorts. I am new to the field and would like some advice on what exactly I can do to this laptop, relative costs, and a few good ideas to make it better. I know that it suffers a heating problem (caused the hard drive failure, I have disassembled the fan and cleaned it and applied some new thermal compound), but everything else functions normally
Also, any suggestions on a good deal for a new battery? The previous owner was ignorant, and the battery lasts about 5 minutes max.
Thanks a lot guys you are awesome, J.T.

Not really much you can do. Replace the RAm, and maybe the CPU, but that's it. ALso, laptop batteries are a ripoff. $100 for a battery?! LOL. I don't know where, but maybe eBay/Amazon.
If you need a new battery, I would just scrap it and buy a new laptop. That thing is like 5 years old.
