    Re: Laptop keeps cutting out on boot

    I haven't had time to look at the photos...... Yeah, if it IS the problem. I need an "enthusiast" who'll do it for next to nothing just to see if it works. I'm "working on" a couple of people I know....

    Re: Laptop keeps cutting out on boot

    Well, did what wuppo said and the laptop behaved exactly as he predicted. It let me get all the way into the rescue disks to restore the OS and as soon as I plugged the power supply in the thing cut...

  7. Re: Is it possible to migrate to another laptop using an image from the old one?

    Thanks for that mzee. I've decided to chuck in the towel and go for a new laptop (see here), but I'll make a note of that piece of Acronis software for future reference.

  9. Re: Are these the same laptops or am I missing something?

    Just stuff I take on my Canon Camera. At high def the files it produces are pretty big cos it will only save in MVI format :( Back in 2010 I bought a (German I think) Editing program called Magix I...
  10. Re: Are these the same laptops or am I missing something?

    Thanks for all that Speedy. The info about Office was useful - that was one of my main worries. I've been to the Classic Shell Website and that looks as if it could be useful if it works like it says.
  11. Re: Are these the same laptops or am I missing something?

    Hi WebDev
    As I said, probably the most intensive thing is Movie editing. Other than that it's just general office work (including spreadsheets), editing photos...... I'm NOT into gaming and my...

  13. Are these the same laptops or am I missing something?

    Hi People

    After my two threads of yesterday it looks as if I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get a new laptop (SWMBO is all for it - says I'm wearing hers out!).I'm limited by budget...

    Re: Laptop keeps cutting out on boot

    Yeah, I did wonder about dust and stuff - it's probably got a fair bit inside it, given our house (NB that's NOT a criticism of SWMBO's house keeping skills! Thought I'd better make that clear.........

    Re: Laptop keeps cutting out on boot

    Sorry Speedy, no BSOD. When I said "crashing" I really meant the power cut out, so it had to be restarted.
    The original, "suspect" drive has been removed, and an install on the other drive...

    Thank Goodness. I'm really glad about that! Yesterday I tried doing a search for you whilst on my Asus Tablet, but couldn't turn you up :(

    Still the same old agent I see!! ;)
  19. Re: Is it possible to migrate to another laptop using an image from the old one?

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    To give you a better idea of where I'm at, or coming from, (or something), I've started a new thread about my actual laptop woes here.

  21. Is it possible to migrate to another laptop using an image from the old one?

    Hi all

    It's ages since I've been on here but it's nice to see that a lot of the old names (sorry, that should probably be "familiar names") are still active.

    I've been experiencing problems...

    Re: What do I look for in Tablet?

    Yeah - the wireless in Libraries is a bit contentious. Why should my rates be subsidising overweight teenagers spending ages on Facebook?

    Thanks for that link PPp. I actually come out as well within the "normal" range, which is good. Can't have the pot calling the kettle black can we? ;)

    Do you mean that if they used a pedal car they'd get thinner, or that they just wouldn't bother, thus reducing the weight of traffic on the road?
