My cousin had a similar situation. She had her laptop sittong on her bed while it was on. It overheated and the hard drive crashed. She had to buy a brand new hard drive to replace it. I reinstalled windows and some of her programs for her. Now her laptop is fine. It's very important to make sure your computer get airflow so it won't over heat. One time when I was using my old laptop I had it on a pillow and it started to overheat and it shut down by itself - some computers have sensors that turn off the computer if they get too hot.

Yep, You will have to reinstall windows and any programs you use. I'm assuming your computer came with reinstallation disks for that. Make sure you buy the right hard drive (if you don't buy a new laptop) - you may need help from a fellow computer geek replacing the hard drive.

I know what you say, i like to use my laptop very much too. I don t like to much to use a desktop, even to my office i use a desktop. Is more comfortable for me to use laptop, i like to stay in bed and feel relax, after a work day. Last month my laptop was broken too, because i don t was careful and i spilled some Cola, but i repear it, now we are both in good conditions.

Oh!That is really bad to hear.I think the fault is on your side.When I just bought a new laptop and go through the manual,it says not to use it on bed so that the ventilation will be affected.And your careless mom added to the worst by spilling over water to it.That should be a good lesson for you now.By the way,did you lose any data?

Hey, No this has never happened to me, I wouldn't know what I would do if it happened to me. I would feel really terrible, I wouldn't feel that good. I feel for you though, I just hope you get a new one. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
