A little while ago, I got a weird startup screen on my computer. It was kind of white and neon-y, which is unusual to my usual Windows startup screen. Nyrie told me that's the screen that rendered her laptop completely unusable, so I force shut down my computer in a panic, but it still worked! Sort of.
It was very very slow at times, sometimes when I shut it down the internals wouldn't shut off (which leads to the dead battery thread I had about half a year ago), and in the last days before I took it in to get it fixed, it wouldn't load names of my plugged in devices (eg. "Apple iPhone" instead of the custom name I gave it, no name for my USB drive). I got it fixed at GeekSquad. They told my my Windows operating system seemed to have corrupted. All seemed to be well when I got it fixed.
Except a few days ago, I got that weird startup screen again. My computer's started to be very slow at times, and I'm running into the battery problem. Do I need a new laptop, because I'll just keep shelling out money to get this one fixed otherwise? Or, is there a solution right under my nose? Help is appreciated.
