Sorry to hear that.

 

It's what the salesmen fail to tell you.

Which salesmen? I think many users simply change their HDD for an SSD for the performance/speed benefit. You don't need a salesmqn to tell you that.

And some prefer SSD because there's supposedly a lot less change of damage if the notebook is dropped. Is that true?

Most prefer SSD because they are so much faster than HDD, but if you drop your notebook/laptop, it will probably be the screen which comes a cropper before an SSD.

Which part of 'an SSD is sturdier than an HDD' do you not understand?

I changed the SSD on my desktop about a year ago, but I did upgrade everything else as well.

There's  limited capability on my laptop to make the same changes.

Yes, an HDD is a physical thing with very fine tolerances regarding its moving parts. An SSD is not.

The HDD on my 3-year old Lenovo Ideapad crapped out a couple months ago.  Replaced it with a same-capacity SDD and at the same time doubled the RAM.

 

Went from two minute boot up time to 20 seconds.  No heat problems.  The fan doesn't run nearly as often or as long as before the change.

I put a SSD into a 10 year old laptop that was on its last legs. Works great now.

Vague statements like this one confirm my OP. 

 

An SSD  being fitted will not repair, for example, a laptop's glitchy monitor, faulty keyboard, or failing motherboard.

Do such salesmen/women even have this knowledge?

As a long-time tech salesman I used to work with told me, he has a rule "never touch the product."

"SSDs generally won’t overheat due to the absence of moving parts, but sometimes they may overheat. A lot of users complain about their SSDs getting overheated and they try to guess the cause behind it. "
