Janet, I have a lot of memory, HDDs and laptop parts lying around left
over from some Frankenputers I've constructed over the years. I'd be happy
to fix up that laptop for you before you send it off. I may even have a
Windows 7 disk and license available. Let me know if I can help you, I
live in Chapel Hill and work in Durham.
