collected these links while dealing with problems I had with my machine,
so you may find them useful in your search for answers as well.
my experience I noticed that when you found some problems on your machine,
the first intention is to blame the hardware or bad drivers, while system
issues are often left with a little attention. So what I want to point
out is that system-related issues ( esp. Windows' ) should
be checked out first and then you go further narrowing down possible weak
you find links particular to Transmonde Notebooks, but I also included
some links related generally to notebooks, computers, and systems -- be
sure to check them out first. And of course you may always post your question,
so your fellow Compu-triots could share your burden...
as you probably understand it yourself : YourLinks
will be very much appreciated.
