On your laptop it should tell you the model type, and manufacturer. Please tell us that info so we can help you more.

lol sorry, I always use technical terms. I mean that was this doing this when you bought this laptop? Or did you wipe the hard drive(delete all data) and re-install windows?

Hello dalep.



Does the PC have a CD/DVD drive or just USB slot(s).

Please post back the exact text of the error message you are referring to.

Are you experiencing any performance problems at all with the netbook?

Did your netbook come with any recovery media, have you made any Recovery media for it? Read your Manual to understand how this is done, or how to run a full Factory Recovery at bootup.

Which N450 is it?
