    Have to take battery out of Laptop to make it work after hour break!


    Hi,

    I had a PC repair guy upgrade my laptop to Windows 10 (from 7) last September, and he also put a new SSD in. And it worked ok for several months.

    Then I noticed a few strange things:
    1) Every so often, I hear a noise similar to an electronic camera shutter sound effect, or a crunching metal sound. (Sorry I can't record it, as it only does it about once a week). But it doesn't sound good!

    2) The fan is now on nearly all the time, but I might do a separate thread for this. I'm just putting it here in case it's related to the third and biggest problem:

    3) When I leave the laptop on for more than about an hour, (either on battery or plugged in ...makes no difference), sometimes it hangs when I try to wake it up. I have it set to sleep after 30 minutes, so it should wake up when I press the Power on button. It just stays on the start pic of the forest. No date appears as it should, followed by the password unlock box.

    Nothing I do makes a difference. This would go on for hours, unless I take the battery out for 10 seconds. Then it starts as normal, and is ok.

    But having to take the battery out (usually at least once a day now) is not normal is it?

    The only way I can stop it happening is if I Power off before all breaks. But I don't always know that I will be away for more than an hour.

    Any ideas please? Thanks



    223 GB SSD
    Windows 10 (version 1903)
    i3 370M
    4GB DDR3

    :)
