Windows 7: Slowest laptop ever. Gets bsod often.

02 Mar 2014   #1

Windows 7 starter 32bit
Slowest laptop ever. Gets bsod often.

I have without a doubt, the crappiest laptop EVER.
to give you an idea, it takes 5 minutes to boot into normal mode.
I play minecraft on the laptop sometimes. When I first bought it it was a bit laggy on it, but was ok.
Now it is super laggy and when I close/open it sometimes gets a bsod.
I go on IE and go onto youtube. What happens next? It freezes and closes.
Sometimes when I boot up the chkdsk comes up and checks the disk. 10% later chkdsk failed bsod.
MSI U180
Intel atom n2600
1gb ram
320 HDD.
when I type in something, sometimes the keyboard comes a bit loose. Then it pops off revealing internals and for some reason turning off and the battery light turns red.
This does not need fixing or any kind of help but if you want to help go ahead.
PS: when I'm older I'm getting a gaming computer from a company that is not dell,MSI,acer.

Slowest download speed ever encountered?
What's the slowest you've ever seen a file download at? For me it was a few bytes per second with the estimated time at several years. Obviously, I cancelled that download :p.
