  1. Hi, I am having a few problems with my laptop. I have an emachine M6811 and I switched to microsoft Beta 2 yesterday. For the past few months my computer would randomly shut it self down. Sometines it would do it while I was at work and it was just downloading from edonkey. But in the last few weeks it would do it while I was using it, today it has done it twice, and I am trying to work on my masters. The other issue is that the screen keeps flickering. When it does that I shut the screen and reopen it and it seems fine. If you can help, please let me know!!

    To be honest, I would never recomend Beta software since it designed for use by IT specialists only. I dont think the problems are caused by software but its worth uninstalling the Beta software and trying again.

    I would uninstall Beta, if the problem had started after I had installed it in the first place. Actually, I really like the way that Beta runs and the way that it looks. But thank you for your advice-- have a great night...
