HI folks my Laptop specs are:
16gb of ram
i7 processor generation 5
Windows 7 64bit
I recently moved house and like a fool I dropped the laptop bag off my bike it landed hard right on the corner and it's damaged my cd-drive. It protrudes a bit wont open are close either.The casing of the screen on teh top right hand side is also a bit off, looking at my window now the view of the angle dips to the right.
A few days afterwards I noticed my time would revert to 2013 disabling my internet. I changed the time to automatic and re-entered it in BIOS and today it again reverted the time. Also sometimes icons in the task bar wouldn't appear. Just now the wifi icon isn't there but I'm connected, it's sometimes there, sometimes not. Last night I was playing things fine then moved to another room, Ive broken my battery before so can only plug in. When I moved to the other room it took forever to boot then programs were crashing, internet was slow. Thinking the movement caused something perhaps??
My music programme ableton had issues after I booted up again the projects wouldn't load. I disabled virtual instruments when loading ableton and this opened my projects fine. I've yet to try enabling vst's as working on some things and going to back up stuff.
Before I dropped it though I did notice some sluggishness. I scanned with malwarebytes, superanti-spyware and avira anti-virus, only superanti spyware found things, which it usually does due to football streaming sites I usually hit at weekends.
Any advice? I know I obviously have to get the drive repaired at a shop, but is this the reason for the software issues, is my hard drive damaged??
Ideas of what physically needs fixed and anything I could do with software would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Update the vst folder is crashing ableton when I enable it which makes me think it could be unrelated, but then could be a hard drive issue.
EDIT 2: I just rembered before I dropped it I noticed an issue. I had recently cleaned my desktop up and deleted a lot of files and arranged the ones left nice and tidy on the corner of my desktop, the files I didn't delete when booting up again are in the same place, they are spread out over the screen. This memory has just made me think it's more a software problem as again I arranged my icons the other night and again they have went back to where they were before I deleted a lot of things.
