While I greatly appreciate all of the advice I got from everybody about laptops (especially all that you gave, Sisen), I ended up just having it repaired...
It was some problem with RAM and the hard drive, supposedly. I still remained unconvinced the hard drive was bad seeing as when I stopped in yesterday to hear face-to-face everything that was wrong, I got to look at the computer and looged in just fine and all of my data was there and yeah... But they're replacing those. Which wasn't too expensive. But then are charging me to reinstall the OS and other stuff and yeah... It still ended up being pricey.
I'd have probably just bought the new laptop. But I called my dad and he said if they can fix it, fix it. He didn't want me to keep having to wait (even though I'm still waiting now to get it back from being actually repaired).
So once again, thanks guys. But it looks like I'll just be sticking with the old one.
Now to see what condition it's in and if I can remember all of my settings to restore ha...
So I still haven't heard back from the repair shop, but my friends and I have all deduced separately that it was likely a motherboard issue that killed my laptop. (They also all admonished me for not going to the free computer help desk in the library that they work at, but having never had need to go there didn't think of it. Stupid, stupid, stupid me... )
So all things considered it'll probably be cheaper just to buy a new one.
My parents seem pretty darn adamant about me getting a Dell since my mom won't stop sending me emails about deals on Dells. Probably because we get a discount on them if ordered through my dad's office/the place I worked at this summer. But I don't know if I even want to go that route.
I don't know what to get.
So I guess try to stick to Dell. What to you guys is a good laptop to look into right now?

Aside from the occasional gaming (and less-than-occasional gaming late last night where I might've played for 5 hours straight?) all I've done this weekend is homework. But even between matches I did homework so I felt productive.
It's really all I've done.
It's so much fun I tell ya!
Well I guess I've also spent more time in the commons building computer lab than ever before. But the bulk of that was spent writing down homework assignment or updating my resume anyways. And getting distracted with the Internet because, come on, it was too tempting.
Finding out tomorrow the diagnosis for my laptop... I've reached the conclusion it was some sort of problem between the power supply and motherboard which probably will probably lead to replacing one or the other or both. I really wish I knew if it were wiser to do that or purchase a new laptop altogether...
Ah well, we'll cross that bridge when it comes. Too bad it's also during the week of the career fair where my life is stressful enough.
