    OK, dolly birds, still the same, one minute it’s ok, then the next it takes 30 seconds to a minute to respond to command, bit like a woman.

    Tried running the Ccleaner thing LR suggested I download sometime back when I had a different problem, still the same...

    Computer doing head in again, over the last few days it is taking ages to do anything when on the net, just flicking between topics on this forum is taking a minute or more, problem is not only with this site, its everything, BBC news, sport etc, I have run CCleaner a couple of times but it made no difference, any suggestions.

    Download the FREE version of this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and run it Adam. See if it finds anything. When you go to the pub tonight, run the "Perform full scan". See what it says when you get back.

    Tried to download that program on your advice previously, it would run and tell me I had hundreds of problems, then when I clicked for it to fix them it wanted to charge me, will have another go.

    Thanks.

    Feckin laptops chucked it now, switched it on, it makes the normal clicking  and whirling noises but screen just stays black,,, we on net via iPad, typed in make (Toshiba Satellite) and the problem, these are the fixes that came up:-

    Hold start button in for 60 seconds.
    Remove battery, plug in mains power and hold start button in fot 60seconds.
    Remove battery, refit and start up computer again.
    Remove battery, refit, press start and F8 buttons at same time.
    Remove battery, refit, press start, F8 and shift button at same time.

    None worked, any suggestions...

    The battery may have come to the end of its life. How old is the lappy?

    It's about five years old, battery ain't been lasting as long as it did, but computer switches on, be it on battery or mains power, just the screen does nothing...

    I'd say either the screen or the battery is fecked. Bring it to a repair shop. Should only take ten minutes to find out.
