I recently bought a second-hand HP Mini 210-2004 ed. laptop. Unfortunately, it has given me many difficulties since then.
The problems are as follows:
- After approximately 20 to 40 minutes I have connected to the internet, the internet falls out. However, the symbol in the quick launch still indicates that I am connected, even though I cannot open the wireless internet centre anymore.
- Subsequently, when I try to shut down Windows, Windows will not proceed to shut-down past the screen that says shutting down with the rolling windows circle logo. I have to force a shutdown with the power button.
- In addition, if I try to update Windows within the 20-40 minute time frame, it will not complete the update and the computer will become very slow and non-functional. It will also sometimes suddenly respond slow by itself without performing the update.
- Finally, a fan on the left hand side of the laptop surges on and off very fast and very loudly whenever the laptop reaches a certain temperature. This is much louder than any fan-sound I have ever heard, and doesnt strike me as normal at all.
The specifications for the laptop are:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Intel Atom N445(1,66GHz)
250GB HDD (7200 rpm)
1024 MB DDR3 SDRAM (1 Dimm)
25,65 cm (10,1") LED screen
Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 3150
802.11 b/g/n WLAN
I have no idea what is wrong with it and how I could fix the problems. I still have a warranty from HP that is valid for about 2 more months. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me.
