After 3 years, most corporations pull them out of circulation because their failure rate gets too high and they aren't worth fixing since the warranty is up. As you've discovered, laptop life isn't just based on handling conditions; wear and tear over time take their toll on them just as much as handling mistakes. Might want to just buy cheaper laptops and turn them over every 3 years rather than clinging to one and praying that it lasts.
