I can't find my last post regarding this, so apologies if this is a double up...


Other than disliking the OS 8.1 with its  OVERLY ANNOYING start screen/"charms" appearing whenever THEY wish, this appears to be a great little Laptop!


Reasonable specs for my needs, not unlike my 'Vista girl', but with a 750Gb hdd....


but.......... other than the A/C and WiFi lights at the front right, I don't see any others?


CPU activity in particular... so how do I know when it's running/struggling/etc???

Hi OliviaITlover :)

Depending on the laptop/computer brand and model you have, you won't have the same lights as others. Some offers light for the A/C, network (WiFi), network (Ethernet), disk usage, etc. while others only offers light for the A/C. Personally, I've never seen a light for the CPU usage. If you want to know your CPU usage (and if it's struggling), right-click on the taskbar and select Open Task Manager. From there, you'll see your CPU usage and if it's struggling or not.
