Clevo Laptop Repair

This Clevo laptop was brought in as it was not starting up. It was running windows 7 home premium 32 bit and was locking up just before the desktop should have loaded. I ran the standard windows start up repair routine from the hard drive and it reported that it could not repair the problem, however, windows then decided to load properly. After a few tests all seemed to be working fine. I checked the windows event manager and it did not show any issues. I then scanned the hard drive for errors which ran fine. As a final test I took the hard drive out and installed it on the test bench to run a full diagnostic on the drive, checking for read and write errors. I also ran memtest86 for a while to check the RAM was not showing any errors and gave the fan and air vent a clean as it was looking a bit dusty.


Toshiba Satellite Pro Celeron B820 Home Laptop

The customer wanted a laptop for use at home. It had to be reliable, have good battery life but be cost effective. I have sold Toshiba laptops for a few years now and have always been impressed with their build quality and reliability. The C850-14D uses a Celeron B820 which is not the fastest CPU in the world but is more than enough for general web and email use. The 500GB hard drive gives loads of space for documents and attachments and the feature list is pretty impressive.
