Well if it is still under some sort of warranty or service agreement I suggest you contact them because they will be more acquainted with their own systems than I would be. I have only had experience working on dell laptops....

I would guess it probably has something to do with the power since it is just dying on you when you move it. Probably something inside the laptop too if it dies when you move it with a fully charged battery, but idk.

Hello Prof,

I need to get excel dl'ed onto this computer but not sure where to get it from. I've seen some with 60 day free trials and some that you need to pay for. It was already installed on my other computer & I don't wanna pay for it. I do have an old disk for Microsoft Office 97, but I don't need all the programs, just Excel. Should I try the disk even though it's 11 years old? Or do you know where I can get it for free?

Thanks!

It would help if I knew what operating system you were using.

I will assume you are using a windows variant.

If its windows then there are a myriad of things you could do ta improve your performance...

Although I am doubtful if I should tell you a lot of them because you might mess things up a bit.

One of the main things you want to do is make sure you have good anti-virus and anti-spyware software and scan often.

Would you please tell me which, if either, you have?

im using windows xp pro sp2
for anti-virus i am running Avast
I'm not too worried about messing it up,anything on here i dont want to lose is stored on something besides the main hard drive, if it really gets messed up fixing it would be as simple as re-installing windows right?

Does Avast offer anti spyware capabilities as well? If not get windows defender from the Microsoft website.

Go to run in your start menu and type msconfig go to the startup tab, deselect which services are not needed. Do not disable anything labeled as windows or that you might need. Things you probably dont need on startup are programs like adobe acrobat ect. Deselecting these programs will mean they dont start up when you start windows, thus freeing more memory up for other applications. Do be warned that if you disable a vital program windows may not start up or function improperly.

I also recommend you defragment your hard drive as often as it becomes fragmented, depending on how much you use your computer and what type of use you put it through.
