Problem is they normall replace like for like unless otherwise stated. The problems you are having will be down to software, i.e. reinstall the opperating system and it will be good as new. The answer to your question is yes there are things you can do but this involves accessing the main board so you need to make sure you can do this without leaving any clues!

The model is no longer in production so would get a better upgrade l dont have accidental damage on house insurance.
What would be the simplest thing l could do to the main board???
