If it's still under warranty, it's definitely worth repairing. If not, get them to quote for the repair they say it needs before agreeing to it. If their quote is anything close to the current price, I would say it's not worth it.
The only easy check I can suggest is on the memory. Flip your notebook so that the bottom is facing up. Locate a small panel (with 1 or 2 screws) roughly 3X3in. Inside would be 1 or 2 memory strips held in place by 2 retaining clips, one on each side. Moving the clips slightly away from the memory would free the memory strip and partially spring up. It can now be easily removed. With a pencil eraser, clean/rub on the little gold contacts at the bottom. The slot where they mate with their holder could also be cleaned with an old toothbrush.
If the above does not correct the errors, then perhaps you are better off seeking the services of a qualified professional since the unit may have to be opened up and diagnosis performed on its various components.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
