    Most importantly this laptop has a failing hard drive. In disk utility it tells me to back up as the hard drive is failing. It has an 80GB hard drive and I upgraded the RAM to 1.2MB a few years ago

    Also I have the optical drive failing

    Is their anyway to get around this and repair ? Or should I throw laptop away

    I don't know, you have to search yourself for a 2.5" S-ATA HDD with a maximum height of 9.5 mm, as the guide explained.
    500 GB should cost less than 100 quid.

    I don't know either, as you haven't gone into any detail.

    Maybe have a look at the following post:
