  I 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.
From 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 points. 
Here 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...
And as you probably understand it yourself : YourLinks will be very much appreciated.
