1) Start up sometimes freezes, 2) Is not recognizing outlet power
1) Most times on start up, computer seems to freeze and/or take 20min-1hr to boot. AntiVir, Adware, Spywareblaster, Spybot SD, CCleaner, and Spyware Doc all say system is fine. Once computer is up and running, no problem even when restarted. But if computer is shut down completely and left for awhile, it's back to taking forever to come back up.
2) After adding additional RAM, computer is sometimes not recognizing outlet power; laptop runs very hot - fan does run.

All tablets connect to your computer using a USB cable.
Once connected, the device should charge as long as the
computer recognizes it.
Look for manufacturer-specific software to launch once you
plug your tablet into your computer; if this software fails to launch, it's
likely that your computer hasn't detected the device and won't charge it.
Try a second USB cable, if available, or plug the USB cable
into a different port.
If the device doesn't charge in either port, replace the USB
Some tablets are sold with an accompanying AC power
adapter, though these accessories are often optional.
Try plugging your tablet into its AC power connector in the
event that its USB cable isn't functioning.
Also check different wall outlets in case the outlet you are
plugging your tablet into is defective.
If the device fails
to charge in different outlets, the AC adapter may be faulty.
Like any device with an operating system a computer, a mobile
phone or an MP3 player tablet computers can freeze from time to time.
When a computer freezes, you can reboot or restart it to get
the operating system working properly again.
This is true of tablets too, but rebooting these systems can
be a little tricky.
Check the manufacturer's website for specific instructions
to restart your system.
Putting the tablet to sleep and waking it up doesn't clear
its memory look instead for the buttons
for a "reset," which are different for every brand.
This may clear up any recent malfunctions, like freezing
apps or charging issues.
Just like a computer, tablets sometimes need to be restored
to their original state to overcome technical issues like charging problems.
Again, the process of restoring your tablet to its factory
default differs from model to model and from brand to brand.
Check the manual or the manufacturer's website for specific
instructions, but as a general rule: plug the tablet into your computer using
the provided USB cable. Wait for the appropriate software to load and then look
for a "Restore" option.
Follow the onscreen prompts to restore the device.
