Dell Inspiron 9300..is it hard drive, power cord or fan??Locked
So my Dell Inspiron is acting very unusual. It started when I went on a road trip and used my laptop to watch movies. I put it on one time and it lit up then blinked and turned off. I would try to turn it back on and it just made a blink noise.
I noticed it was extremely hot so I had someone clean the inside out. Still happens. It stays on for alittle while, gets very hot to the point where the sticky stands on the bottom melted. My battery would also go fast. Sometimes when it got real low, I would plug the power cord in and it would freeze the whole computer. But if I plug the power cord in while it’s off and start it up it’s normal. But still gets very hot and ends up freezing.
I did a diagnosis on it and it came up with an error and I was told it was my hard drive. Mind me, after all these errors I did restore my dell to the original state it was. Still happened so now I know it wasn’t the software or anything else. I am so confused. Is it the battery, hard drive or both?
