Hi there, first off very sorry, no idea where to post this as its not actually sim related although it is important so I can play sims
I have a six year old laptop that started giving me blue screens and shutting down, sometimes within minutes of each other. So I saved all I could to an external hard drive and factory reset it. It worked great for a while and then it started doing it again. I basically gave up then and put it aside to take into Dell for a check up once I have enough money saved up. However I have a friend that knows a little more than me about computers, she had a look and said that my c drive is perfect so is my display driver. It seems the issue is my wifi router (I think that is what its called) I did not think something like wifi issues could give such a big amount of blue screens, but she proved it to me. She used one of her internet cables and connected to the internet via that and my laptop was fine, but as soon as she disconnected the cable and it went on to wifi then the blue screen and auto shutdown happened. I bought myself a cable now too, and is running it all the way from my modem (bought a 10 meter cable) and so far no blue screens, I still only have the factory reset laptop, have not added anything yet. Do you think it will be safe to load my sims back on and use the laptop or might I damage it for good and then I will have to replace it, which could take up to a year
I really miss my sims and interacting with you all, but I don't want to cause more damage by doing the wrong thing
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
