Laptop Issues on the Road


I’ve been having problems with my laptop lately. I bought my Lenovo in February of this year and it’s on its 7th month now. The past few weeks have been terrible for me in terms of its performance. It doesn’t respond as fast as my old notebook with lower specifications.

Slow Response

Since I’m travelling most of the time, I have to make sure that there are no issues with my computer when I get the chance to work. And the last weeks have been a pain in the butt because of how slow it was. When I opened my browser or switched to a different application, it took a few seconds for it to respond.

and I finally have an XP Professional installed in it! I had the IT guys work on it since I’m really not that technically resourceful in looking for drivers and hotfixes to solve the problem.

i surrendered my laptop

temporarily anyway.  There was a problem with the LCD at the bottom portion as lines were flickering which needed to get fixed. It’s still under warranty so it shouldn’t be that much of  a problem. But having to surrender my HP laptop for a couple of weeks (hopefully it’ll just be one) is a bit … Read more

laptop issues

I need to get my laptop fixed. It has a horizontal line that's flickering at the bottom of the screen and it's pretty irritating considering that I have to have it checked when it's still new. Sigh. I'll be saying goodbye to it for a week and I don't like it. I also want to … Read more
