  1. How big of a difference does operating system make, performance wise?
  2. I have a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5128 laptop that I am trying to repair and upgrade. It needs a screen replacement and I'm wonder if it's possible to go from the stock 1366 resolution to a 1080 resolution screen. I'm also wonder what my options would be for RAM upgrades and a CPU upgrade if that's even possible. My last question is with it being an older machine, is it best to leave Windows 7 on it instead of upgrading to 10. The hard drive is definitely being replaced so no questions there. Any input on the topic is much appreciated. Thanks for your time.
  3. Local Best buy is selling a 500gb evo860, might go get that. Thanks you guys, this was very informative and super productive. I really appreciate it. Does anyone happen to know anything about Toshiba satellites?
  4. The bracket says it's 9.5mm hdd. based on the look of the connector it appears to be regular sata that goes into the HDD and msata that plugs into the computers board. So based on that I'd say I need a Sata SSD not msata, my assumption might be wrong.
  5. I currently have an HP Pavilion G7 Notebook AMD A6-3420M 1.5GHZ stock that is running Windows 7 premium. I'm wonder what specific basic upgrades I could throw into it, ssd/windows10/RAM/etc. I know an SSD would be a huge upgrade but I'm unsure what size/type I can put in it. I think RAM is possible too but again unsure as to type ddr2/3 and size? Any suggestions are helpful thanks!
  6. Thank you all! I appreciate all the responses. Got it sorted out!
  7. So is there a way to set the default download/install drive to the HDD so that a customer doesn't have to manually select the HDD every time? Right now whenever they try to install a program it automatically asks to install to the SSD. They would like it to automatically download to the HDD without having to switch the drive location from the SSD to the HDD.
  8. If I have an SSD and an HDD setup, SSD being where my operating system is installed, will downloading files to the desktop save the files to the SSD since the desktop is part of the OS?
  9. Night one with new RAM and no reboots. <3 we'll give it a week. Thank you if this works.
  10. There were two things I was hoping no one would suggest, CPU and RAM. But I'm thinking you're right. I'll let ya know how swapping the ram goes. Thanks for the suggestion m8.

As long as I don't run any applications it will stay on. Once I open an application like chrome to watch a YouTube video there's a chance that a shut down and reboot will happen, but it doesn't always happen -i.e. completely random. When it does shut down it resembles unplugging the power cable while the computer is still on. This started after I replaced the CPU, RAM, and upgraded the BIOS. It's not a power supply issue because I have tried fixing it with 2 different power supplies now; the base 305W PSU and the Corsair 500W PSU. I have download both CPUID and Core Temp to see how the CPU is holding up and it appears to be doing alright running at between 35C normal load and 55C under heavier load. At this point I don't know what to try next. I've read that the CPU and Mother board should run fine with the A22 BIOS so I don't know if a down grade to A21 BIOS is warranted. Also, I've never done a downgrade on a BIOS before so I don't know if downgrades screw with other drivers and if I need to do a clean install of Windows. If any one has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. I would like to try everything possible before I go buy a new Q9650. I understand that it would have been easier to buy a new computer but this was about the learning experience which has been amazing so far. If you need any other information, feel free to ask. Thanks in advance!
