Building the van, rebuilding the laptop

One of my favourite Christmas presents this year was a “build your own” VW campervan.  I’ve jokingly said that I’d like one some day to tour around Europe.  Well, now I have one sitting in my lounge which I can look at every evening!

Opposing my success with the van, is the regression with my laptop.  After running defrag my laptop power cut out every time.  So I decided to take the plunge and rebuild it (software wise).  After finishing the full NTFS format the power cut again.  Arrgh… There must be some overheating problem going on and when the PSU detects this it just shuts down to prevent the whole thing bursting into flames.

After much waiting and frustration I’ve now reloaded Windows XP, Office 2003 and now I’ve got to wait while Windows Update downloads the hundreds of updates and service packs….zzzzz
