Air Conditioning fix, monitor temperature sensor? and laptop goes in tomorrow

My Air Conditioning in my room wasn’t working very well and I found out why, the vent blows more by the wheelchair, which is blocked by the wheelchair. So I did some fix it and blocked the wheelchair off with a folder and taped the big leak on the other side of the vent and now it blows into the room not against the chair, yay!
However I am a bit paranoid since my ICU monitors temperature sensor is displaying higher than normal temperatures in my room consistently and I am not hot, so I called them up and they said test it under my arm (axillary) and the monitor was more accurate than my oral thermometer that is ages old 97.4=98.4 vs 98.7! Upon turning on the monitor it acts like a computer where the coin battery for the BIOS is dead, the clock is wrong, the date is wrong, all the settings like alarm limits are stored safely on non volatile memory. So they are going to call me back with instructions on how to replace that battery if I can and I might need to buy a new temperature probe as this ones low spectrum might be bad, so I decided to stick it in my little fridge to find out, nope it’s working, little fridges temperature is 44ish which is right for a fridge. And my room is 72.6 after running the temperature probe to 97.4 then fridging it then putting it in the room… I guess i am just an overly paranoid weirdo sometimes. Also the fact it is getting colder outside and is not summer anymore has a lot to do with it. We had the AC blasting, now we only have it on to regulate the house, not necessarily COOL it.
Onto the laptop of DOOM. It’s going back in cause the Airport card don’t show up and the screen don’t. The Wi-Fi ain’t my fault, the screen, I dropped it when getting it out of the box, clumsy me. SO yeah back in for repairs it goes!
