    Weird turned off screen issue lately with an old laptop


    My laptop is 6 years old. Lately it started to have an issue: I've been connecting this laptop to a second monitor for years via HDMI. Now when I unplug the HDMI and I want to take to another place, the screen stays off, but the PC is still on (so it seems).
    I have to shut it off and turn it on in order to make the screen work again. Luckily I have a good SSD so it's not that of an issue, but still it's annoying.

    Is it a software problem, or the laptop is starting to die?

    :)

    Weird issues and slowdowns

    Having some weird issues lately, at startup my computer listed in specs hangs for a minute or 2 displaying a 98 in the bottom right of the screen.

    Also the computer seems to randomly get sluggish for a minute or 2 at times..


    Not a clue what it could be, maybe the RAM is shitting the bed?

    Laptop with broken screen How much?

    I would like suggestions and look in local stores. I dont wanna buy a laptop from someone online. Sorry. But could be a good idea if you asked him about the performance on older games. Gonna make a list ofall laptops people suggest me.

    Remove the screen for space purpose here its small desk and if the screen is opened it will hide my 22 inches lcd
