Hey, I am using a HP laptop in the Pavillion series with a 4Gb ram, 1TB HD, Windows 8.1 5th gen. About two months back, I was watching a movie when I got a call that my father was in an accident. I paused the movie and went to the hospital without shutting down the lap. I had to remain at the hospital for 45 days. When I got back, I found that the battery has ran out. So I plugged it in and switch it On. The movie was still on at the same point I left it in... I thought that there would be no further problems but now there are many...
1. My laptop battery is draining a lot faster now...
2. The performance seems a lot slower now with random hang and a longer startup time
3. I had set GOM as my default video player. Now randomly th default video player setting seems to be erased and I have to set it again for every format.
4. My gaming performance too is down
5. Last night, I was watching a movie when the system hanged. The audio continued to run while the screen froze.
What should I do? I am thinking to format the lap and replace the battery. Any suggestions?
