    OK first of all, you need to learn how to type clearer, you have "I" where their should be "A" and so on, its hard to read that. Second it sounds like the computer is restarting so check the settings.

    rogeball,

    Please keep in mind that this is a worldwide forum and English is not everyone's first language. Second, not everyone is technically minded (including myself) so a little instruction goes a long way. I know the basics, but that as far as it goes.

    tumadre,

    As I just got a new laptop, I may be of some assistance. You have different power settings depending on whether you have your laptop plugged in or running on batteries.

    If you don't know how to access:

    Right click your desktop/screen saver/power

    I had the same thing happening to me while running on batteries and had to change the default settings. Hope this helps.



    There's also the possibility that you have spyware, adware, etc.

    tumadre,

    Like I said, I'm not really technically minded. Just the simple things, however, sometimes I even surprise myself with problem solving. I lurk and learn and try to help when possible. You most likely know more than me. Laptops are a whole new dimension for me.

    Hooked up as an external, can you do an error check (ie scandisc)? Virus scan? etc.

    Perhaps rogeball can clarify what settings need to be checked.


    Seeing as no one is jumping in....How about the last comment on this thread? Google can sometimes be your best friend.
