I mentioned back in July that I was having problems with my (quite old now) Sony VAIO A197X. Back then I considered re-installing Windows, but never got round to it.
I don’t really want to abandon it, as it does have a lovely 17″ screen, 1920 x 1080 resolution, which makes it great for watching video.
Sometimes the DVD player does not work as expected sometimes.
Tonight I was watching BBC iPlayer, I watched Doctor Who and that worked fine, but trying to watch Being Human and it decided that was too much…
I think it may have got too hot.
The video froze, despite restarting the browser, I couldn’t get the video working.
In the end I turned it off and watching iPlayer on my Mac.
I think I will now need to reinstall Windows.
