  1. i have a laptop that shuts off alot
    its as though there is a short or something
    i dropped it and had to have the harddrive replaced and the dvd drive does not work and was told it was disconnected when it was dropped and was supposed to have been reconnected but still does not work
    let me know what you think thank you

    But they installed Windows on it didn't they?

    Or just put it together?

    Hi rapzkilla,

    Check the battery and the life span on it and see if it crashes when charging. You could also have a harddrive failure.

    Well we could guess all day
    But upon dropping, I'd check to see if the Ram is still seated correctly

    But what I've got out of the first post, was that it was dropped then repaired somewhere. ie new HardDrive installed.
