My wife's laptop is still playing up. Today I had to reset it to get it
working. It does not exactly lock up, it just does not respond to the
mouse or the keyboard. When I reset it, it works OK for a while and then
starts playing up again.
I am wondering if the HD is on the way out. Can anyone tell me what
signs to look out for please? Or are there some tests I can run? The
computer is nearly five years old, and it is used a lot. I am wondering
if, should there be a problem with the HD, it would be more sensible to
replace the HD, perhaps with a SSD, or to go for it and get a new computer.
Any suggestions please?
