HP Elitebook 8570w - replace parts

This is a refurbished laptop, don’t know if it is better if I just get a new one or replace the battery and fan.

I think it is the fan, every time I turn on the laptop I hear a loud running noise, my guess that it is the fan. If it is the fan, or whatever noise that is.

These question are regarding the fan:

Can I replace it? I.e easy to open the laptop apart and replace it and close it without breaking it.

Is it affordable? Or better off just buying a new refurbished laptop.

As for the battery, I found this online - ... hp261.aspx - is this a good deal? And how long will it run before it needs to be charged again.

Perhaps you can try blowing out the fan first with some compressed air. Fan price seems to be bout $20ish on ebay if you choose a Canadian source... cheaper if from china (but shipping time will be months at this time). Battery price doesn't seem too bad.

Here's a disassembly video and you can see if you're up for the task.... just alot of screws it seems, not too many annoying clips.

You can always use this as an excuse to get a new laptop :)
