Just swapped out the hard drive on an old laptop of mine from 2008-09. The specs are decent but the HHD was in poor shape. I replaced it with an SSD and booted. Previously I had accidentally got canned air in the out-take? vent for the cpu. Psensor show the temperatures to be a little high (running linux at the moment) but not too outrageous (80+). Any suggestions? I had hoped to fix this into a usable machine but I'm not sure about it if the fan won't spin. Thanks
Never mind about the battery I took it out then put it back in and it works. Gonna see what to do about the fan. Is 40-55ish C okay on idle? It seems a little high to me. When installing some updates it went over 60... Leaving it off for now till I work something out.
