Laptop rebirth (upgrading)

OS74

2 months ago

Hello,

My brother had an old laptop and by looking at it i thought why not to fix/upgrade it and use it in my collage Its a Dell inspiron 15R 5537

Specs:

Cpu : intel core i7-4500U

Display: 15.6" , HD(1366×758)

Storage: 1TB HDD 5400rpm

RAM : 8 GB DDR3 , 1600MHZ

Broken:

1- Screen

2 - the body / cover

3- keyboard

3 - Fan

Possible upgrade:

1- SSD

2- RAM

Please help me i never dealt with laptops is it hard that i should go to a professional if not i don't know where to get the parts and so

Note: any decent screen will do the job i will be using it for basic tasks and browsing

Thanks in advance

Yes the screen is cracked , is any 15.6" screen will fit and be compatible with laptop?

Also for the keyboard do you know how can i find the matching keyboard for the laptop?

The same goes for the fan

I searched for a compatible ssd but iam not sure if it's going to work for me is there anyway to check if its compatible?

Last but not least, why wouldn't you bother with a better and faster ram ? I found a crucial 2×4 (1866 ) for 45$

Sorry for asking alot !
