My laptop is sick and I’ve tried everything to make it feel better but alas, I have a feeling it needs to see a technician.
Every time I try and render or convert and then burn a media file the laptop automatically shuts down. It seems it can do everything up until the point of actually burning the file.
This is bad because I owe people things and it seems my laptop just won’t come across with the goods.
It’s also eating up my hard disk like woah.
Yesterday it told me it only had 1MB left on the hard disk, which yeah, I don’t think so. I always make sure I have at least 20GB free on my hard disk. Anyway, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and deleted several programmes as a test and nothing changed.
After a week of fiddling and tweaking I finally caved and restored it to factory settings. I re uploaded all my programmes and checked my hard disk, which had a little over 35GB of free space.
This morning I switched it on only to find that 3GB have vanished, never to be found.
I tried to convert and burn a media file and it shut the laptop down.
Last time it needed to see a technician they didn’t return until five weeks later.
