Question about PC Laptops
About every hour or so i have to shut down and reboot my OS because the mouse will stop working then my windows dwindles down to 1 operational window. i never had this problem when i first purchased my puter in 10-07, but in 12-07 i had an accident with my laptop and it had to be replaced completely. i dont know if this has something to do with the "package 100" service package that i got with the first laptop, and why it wasnt offered with the second, but its a long day when i have to keep rebooting my puter to get things done
Try this to see what is happening..
Press CTRL - ALT - DELETE all together.
It will open what is called Task Manager.
Do this as soon as the laptop has finished booting.
When it opens, select "Processes" from the top tab, then click on the work Memory. If you have small numbers at the top, then click it again.
Keep that off to the side and watch what is using alot of memory then write the filename down.
Before you get to the point where you have to shutdown, click on the word CPU, again, set it so the highest number goes to the top.
Write down whatever this filename is. If it is System Idle, then write whatever is under that.
Get those 2 done and post the filenames back here, with the amount of memory/cpu they were using before you shutdown.
