Hi all, I don't believe I've posted here before, and I know this is long, but any help is appreciated. In Jan I was carrying my 15" 2.3 ghz Macbook Pro (a1211) and I slipped on ice and dropped it on the sidewalk. I had a soft slip on it, but it was not in its hard case. I was upset as I am very attached to my computer. The screen was cracked vertically down the middle with the right side mostly blacked out. When I turn the computer on, the fans run at 100% and don't stop. They are so loud I actually can't use it in most classes because its distracting. Also after two weeks or so of very light use, the everything related to the sound in OSX quit working. Nothing from speakers or headphones, and when I go into system prefs. there are no devices under input or output, where it would normally say 'Built-in output'. So needless to say, with a broken screen and no sound at all, the computer is almost completely useless to me. At first I thought I would be able to get away with fixing the screen and maybe the sound problem would be easily solved by a few minutes of googling. But i couldn't find anything related to that when I checked. The fans also worry me. I have a friend who just upgraded and said she'd sell me her old 2ghz macbook for $500 which seems like a good deal. Should I purchase the Macbook or could I fix mine for around the same amount? Thanks so much for any help!!
