  1. Haha, I'll tell him that, even though he just won't do so. Since we live together, I can clearly remember his previous Windows 10 installation (20H2 if I recall correctly) being waaaayyyyyyy more stable than his current Windows 7 one. He even does not like Revi OS for some reason (for those who don't know, it's a custom Windows 10 edition with most of the software that is not needed being completely removed, like some UWP apps).

She left it for a bit, just sitting there with Chrome open. Then it decided to lock on its own and restart abruptly. 5 seconds after the restart it completely shut down and did not start again. I checked the laptop and started with simple things, like changing the CMOS battery (which is easily accessible, props to Toshiba for that) and draining any potential flea power (yes, I disconnected both the batter
