To prevent my laptop from the standard overheat-then-auto-shutdown, I did get a cooler. But that wasn't enough. I also cleaned the dust off the fan of the laptop's cooling system... Also wasn't enough.

Then it hit me: my 500GB hard drive worked too hard during the 1st overheat-then-autoshutdown. Maybe I could upgrade to a 1TB with 7200...

Good or bad idea??
