    I won't be online much for a while

    For some reason unbeknownst to me, my computer is playing up. Whilst I can go online using my phone like I am doing now, it's not a solution and things take longer. I can't use my computer for more than five minutes without it suddenly shutting down. If you need support or to report anything, use the email button underneath any of my posts or on my profile. Thanks.

    RE: I won't be online much for a while

    If/when you get a chance to read this, what exactly is wrong?
    Does it simply reboot or go off completely?
    Blue screen? Error messages? anything like that? Is it just going off screen?

    Although if the whole thing is powering off after 5 mins it sounds like a dying power supply ):

    RE: I won't be online much for a while

    I hope so too, Joe. D: Yes, unfortunately, I believe the problem is hardware-related. It goes off completely. I thought it was a RAM issue at first, so I downloaded memtest86+. Furthermore, it took a few attempts before I gave up because it kept turning off. It got pretty far into the tests though, so I'm finding it hard to believe it is a RAM problem. Actually, the computer I'm using is a laptop and I've only owned it for less than a year. I have a PC, but it's packed away somewhere due to the fact the PC itself has RAM problems and kept bluescreening on me. I guess I'll look into sending the RAM from that back to the manufacturer. (I only got it in September so it should be okay.)

    As for the laptop, I guess I might have to send it back. I hate sending things with data on back for repair though. Not that there's anything bad as such on my laptop, but I saw a programme on TV that was an investigation into what computer repair shops often do with computers with secretly-running webcam software loaded onto them and the repair guys going through all the files in a good few instances, so it's a privacy problem. It's slightly worrying. But I guess I'd send it directly back to Samsung if it's a possibility. In the meantime, I have access to somebody else's computer, but I only have about half an hour a day on that. I'll keep you posted on how the repair's going though.

    RE: I won't be online much for a while

    Aye man it does sound like a hard-ware issue like, no real doubt about it.
    When you turn on your laptop and it lets you on for 5 mins what does the battery say? just recently my toshiba laptop started giving out around the 10-15 minute mark because the battery had an issue.

    I definantly understand your worry, some, in fact I know of a good few repair companies that access your email etc through your cookies and then send spam that they get paid for, SO If I was you Id make it look like you use a browser you don't, have Internet Exployer on the task bar and hide your real browser of choice, It's easy for them to get around this with a search, but it's more work than they'll probably consider.

    As for the Webcam software or even worse keyloggers try the usual virus scan etc, malware bytes and whatever else you have on you, your systems event log and task manager should both make a note of the program they're running unless it's some expensive software they're using.

    But hey, clearly you're a tech savvy guy to have made this site and all man, so I'm sure you'll work it out

    Gook Luck!

    RE: I won't be online much for a while

    Hope your PC get fixed like new, I know the feeling. Had my new desktop go blank screen on me at least once a day and Dell replaced the motherboard four times before just replacing the whole thing. Things like this is why I back up my laptop and desktop once every other week.
