Old Laptop Repair

I have a 12-year-old HP laptop with a bad fan. Anybody know if it’s worth trying to repair? If so, where could I find out if there’s a working fan “out there” somewhere? Thanks!

You should be able to locate a fan through HP(likely overpriced), at least the part number and then search elsewhere for one. Changing one out isn’t to terrible depending on how they have it shimmied in there. There are a lot of repair guides out there that will walk you through the process.

@MrDeplorableUSA , thank you. I found the fan listed on Ifixit.com for $40.00, but it was “out of stock.” Seems like a high price to me. I’ll check HP.
