Understood. It's just as well I didn't get into too much time or detail. To make it short for your own future reference then, if you want to make a
single upgrade on a laptop for both Speed and Temp issues at one whack, changing the Hard Drive over to an SSD will do it.
Not only did I go from 90+ seconds to less than 20 seconds avg from cold power off state to a full working desktop (Win 7 professional) but I
discovered as a bonus that most of my heat was being generated through the Hard Drive and not the CPU. When the old magnetic drive got yanked, I could
run the laptop on any surface. A blanket.....it didn't matter since the fan and exhaust rarely engages anymore unless I'm 3-D rendering or
The last one I bought also came with a USB cable adapter that both runs the SATA connection AND powers the drive, all from the USB port. It only works
on SSD's or Laptop size magnetic drives but using that I transferred 24 gigs at school in 14 minutes flat.
Nothing makes a better bang for the
buck on upgrades, IMO.
