My laptop blue screened on me a couple of days ago... I called Geek Squad to see what I could do... 2 different people told me I could send it off with them to be fixed out of state for about $70 to replace the fan... Then when I took it up there, the guy standing there said, without looking at the laptop mind you, that the fan was "saudered on to the motherboard and would have to replace the entire motherboard." Also told me I'd be better off buying a new laptop.

Who is wrong? I have valuable data on this and any help would be appreciated. And "fix" methods also appreciated.

The pc is a little over a year old... system specs shouldn't matter.

Thanks
