Hello all, I just did a clean install because my laptop when I booted it up it would get to the welcome screen, sit there for a long time, and then switch to a black screen with the mouse pointer visible. I could go into safe mode with networking, but even then the computer would freeze. I asked some questions on this forum, but I decided just to start over and do a clean install, my firstp[p one. I was an idiot and didn't back up drivers
or programs, but I wasn't concerned about programs because they can be had. Well, it didn't matter, my laptop is still not responding after a certain amount of time, whether I'm on the computer or not. I have to reboot the computer and start over.
Just before I started having these issues my RAM usage went from 10% to 50% and more for no reason other than I installed a new anti virus, ESET, and it was then I started having issues. I still have my windows.old folder on my PC so I can figure out what essential programs I need, I imagine I need Microsoft Silverlight etc.. Whoa, just now my laptop screen went black and came back. It did that several times, and it just did it again and again. What is going on? I'm sure that I may have hardware issues, I hope not, but maybe you can help me out. I have a Toshiba Portege i5 128 GB SSD 8GB RAM
