All this after a reinstall
 
So I was about to throw my laptop out the window, UGGGGG!!! So tired of waiting forever to get past the welcome screen that I would usually just put the thing to sleep and let it recover from that. I hated having to reboot it, because sometime (usually often but not all the time) it would get stuck at the welcome screen.

After some reading I come to find that it's kinda a common thing with Win7 and to maybe try and change a couple of settings to see if that fixes it. Nope, not for me anyways. Also it would run pretty hot and that battery didn't seem to last that long. I think it was set to performace rather than laptop mode in the power save settings (but I never checked it)

Anyways, a reinstalled has seemed to fix all my issue's. The battery lasts a LONG time now, I was surprised. I was sitting on the couch doing a little surfing and watching a little TV last night and after a while I checked and the battery indicator barely moved!!! WOW :drink:

So basically I just wanted to post this for anyone out there that might have the same problem as I and what I did about it. Window's 7 doesn't take even half as long as Window's XP to reinstall. XP has TONS and I MEAN TONS of updates you have to do. Expect to spend at least a couple hours of updating. 7 seemed to do it in about an hour. It has an HDMI port on it which is one of the reasons I got it to hook it up too our TV and watch Netflix. (works very well this way)

Happy clocking guys and gals.

**edit**
Oops forgot to mention it's an Acer Aspire laptop model 5552
AMD Athlon II X2 P340
15 inch led screen
250 gig drive
ATI HD 4250
4 gigs of ram and a 6 cell battery and wifi.

I got a sweet deal at a local pawn shop I usually go to, only $200.

Like they say, most broken stuff isn't so broken!

Tasty code is always best served fresh!

Also it might have needed some cleaning. When a RAM chip gets dirty, or the built-in cooler becomes clogged it heats up a lot faster and causes the computer to lag and reboot by itself, sometimes accompanied by a scary blue screen
