Have you been through the power options to see if it has been altered in that mode to save power and also check from the bios menu which you can access before the pc boots by pressing a required key(should be displayed by the pc).
Check from the bios if the hard drive has been set to go off during a particular time.
Do let me know if you need more help.
Good luck

I have aspire v5 Acer model computer and anything I do the computer fights me all the way and when you click on icons on the tab bar they don't open how do you speak up the load time on my computer

remove all seldom used installed programs
using the device manager get to disc management and defrag the disc
add another ram stuck if possible
if you have a disc type hard drive (HDD) , it could be coming to the end of it's service life so make sure you have all of your files and folders backed up on external hard drive
IF that is the case replace it with a solid state hard drive SSHD) ( no spinning parts , -quicker in response )
take it to a computer repair shop for a systems performance check

Telikin bios

They run on Linux. There is a BIOS, but I don't know if it's locked out though.
The Telikin Freedom looks like a full laptop
  • Intel Quad Core 1.83GHz Processor
  • 500GB hard drive
It should run any modern windows.

The other ones listed are very low specs.
Telikin Breeze
  • Intel dual core 1.8GHz processor
  • 16GB solid state drive
Telikin Silver
  • Intel J1900 Celeron Quad Core processor, 2.4GHz
  • 2GB DDR3 Memory
  • 32GB Solid State drive
Unless you can find a way to upgrade the SSD,
Windows 7 fills up 30GB by itself, 8/8.1/10 are also out of the question. None of these work well with only 2GB memory either.
You might be able to run Windows XP on the 32GB Silver.

Hi experts, I have scoured the internet and I have not found anyone who is in the same situation as I am. I just bought this laptop by HP "hp envy touchsmart m6-k022dx sleekbook" to replace my previous...

if you want a hard drive that will not fail the hard drive should be a solid state (SSHD)
they are priced at around $60.00 a gig and come in sizes from 120 to well over 500 gig
as there are no spinning discs, failure is remote
besides that a sshd will store more for the same gig size than a disc HD
now best talk with a computer geek to get exact information but you should be able to remove the hd in the computer and replace it with a new one
now connect the hard drive ( removed ) back to the unit as you would a backup hard drive and then down load it back into the computer
remember when fitting a new hard drive you may have to reset the bios to boot from the cd os disc or boot from the removed hard drive as the new hd will not have an os on it
AS I said talk with a geek and get how to do it
computer capacity is also determined by the ram size so if you have the slots fit another ram stick

After connecting the external drive to the computer give it a few seconds for the computer to find the external. After that click on the start menu of you computer, right click on "Computer" and click "Manage". This should bring up a new window, in there you'll see "Disk Management", click on that. You should now be presented with all the disks connected to your computer, your new drive should be there, either listed as not initialized, or empty space, you should be able to right click on it and either initialize it and/or format it to NTFS
