Hello, The last two months I see my laptop constantly crashing and I'm not sure at all what might be causing that. I had it repaired relatively recently before it started crashing too. That time it was a case of a burnt chip close to the motherboard, but it got replaced with a new one. Suddenly though it started to enter in Windows really slow and sluggish every time I switched it on. Furthermore, when I have more than one tabs in Mozilla, or I'm chatting to more than one ppl on msn, or when I try to open a Word doc, or when I want to view photos form my folders, videos in utube, even listen to music either from my folders or a cd.....it just crashes!!It gets really slow, breaking the sounds, I literally cannot listen to anything....Sometimes, after a long time operating first, the sounds might get better (but I still won't be able to listen to a whole track; it's more a case of listening properly to the incoming msn messages and that's about it!)... Whenever this happens the windows that I have open say 'not responding', and that's when I need to give it time let's say to come to terms with the idea of multitasking. Truly, this has been going on solid for the last 2-3 months. I have no clue what to do. And at this point I'm wondering whether I should just give up on it and get a new one...but then, I came across this forum and I thought that maybe it's a last sanctuary before I have to change my lovely machine.....I live in London, and here, even just the check up of a pc costs alot, plus I've already done this twice so, since it won't get fixed permanently I cant see any reason why I should address to them people again. I hope to find a solution to this through this forum. Thanks in advance, Pam.
