Laptop being sucky

My laptop keeps having periods where it crashes multiple times a day, and sometimes makes a mad crackling sound thats horrifying to listen to...
Buuuut I'm in uni studying something where a good laptop that can run 3D modeling and programming shit is super important. Reached out to Acer and they want me to reinstall Windows, but from what Ive read online from people with the same issue, that doesnt do anything...
So If it doesnt work I need to send it in for repair, which means I literally cant do any uni work until I get it back. And Ive got multiple projects currently that can only be done with this laptop.. So uh fuck me... And I cant even wait, unless I wait until summer??? tf do I even do here

do you think wherever you send it in for repair might have temporary replacement laptops you can borrow? idk maybe that's not a common thing

either way super frustrating i hope reinstalling windows helps at least a little bit /: like maybe enough to last until the summer at least

If I can get a replacement while its getting repaired, that would prob be good enough, just a bit annoying. Idk what their policy is tho.
I do still have warranty on it

it crashing makes it sound like it's running out of memory trying to run the modeling software, there's not that much that can be done about that except not running anything else while doing the 3d modeling

but that's just based on what i know, the issue might be hardware too

I could totally understand if that was the problem, but it doesn't seem to be. It happens whenever, I can have one tab open and discord and it'd crash. Other times I can have 3 games, discord, 25 tabs and shit open and it just gets a lil slow...

Yeahh I figure its the fan tbh, but my laptop is too old to bother fixing now anyway I think. I b running windows 8 lol. I have two other ones tho that have no fan issues, but they both have other issues that makes them annoying so idk. Theres just always smth wrong w all laptops

Are you not allowed to get a new computer or idk? ?

Idk what else to do if you cannot repair it. It's either than or a new computer..... obviously it won't magically fix it self. I think i would just buy a new one if i were you because sometimes sending it to a repair shop (unless you can just buy the parts and do it yourself) can cost so much that you might as well just get a new one

Ohh okeeey. Maybe you can contact your school and say that your computer is under repair for x amount of time ? Or have it fixed during your next break ?
