    I want to say thanks to you all for your help. Its been great.

    Just looking a bit of advice now.

    Have already thrown so much money into this laptop over the last 2 years with mutiple things failing I'm now looking into buying a desktop.

    ACER Aspire TC-895 Desktop PC - Intel® Core™ i5, 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD, Black

    Would you say that having SSD rather than soley the HDD is better?

    An SSD definitely works much faster than an HDD.
    Use an SSD and HDD as the system disk and data disk respectively.
    I am the only member who does not use an SSD.

    Try for a 256Gb SSD as you'll want to install programs there as well as the O/S for future proofing. 128Gb can prove a tad small.

    Plan from the start to keep your personal data on the HDD not on C:

    The main benefit of a SSD in practice is the shorter boot time and of course with anything disk intensive.

    Some laptops fail quite quickly alas. I had one that failed after about 2 years having had a motherboard replacement in warranty. Never ASUS again! This one, bought secondhand for £200 with win 10 Pro, initially solely for travelling, is now some 7 + years old and has a modest internal battery as well as the usual one, both still good. 256 Gb SSD.

    Well at the moment, the 128GB is the only one that i can get, also with the budget I'm looking at. Like on an average person's computer how much memory would be used up on programs and O/S?

    Hopefully, I am an average person.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    Impossible to answer. Remember that 30Gb free min is advisable, the O/S takes up perhaps 30Gb at most, installed progs extra. Depends what you install. How long's a piece of string?

    The price point difference for 128Gb vs 256Gb isn't huge, I believe. Depending on what you get, and without a detailed spec. could be £10 between 128Gb and 256Gb.

    Amazon.co.uk : 128gb ssd nvme

    Is £10 significant?

    Well I am going for a new PC rather than buying hard drive. Ending up putting way to much money into a laptop that has never really been right.

    So the PC -ACER Aspire TC-895 Desktop PC - Intel® Core™ i5, 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD, Black is the only one available to me with the SSD.

    Hi, given that restoring your system using a recovery drive does this:

    you may just as well have done a clean install of Win 10, thus avoiding any possible corruption of system files used in creating your recovery disk. And of course, if that happened to be an old build, that would be another argument unless you were planning to stay with an old Windows build for compatibility reasons (which you could still clean install of course).

    If you had previous problems, then as a matter of course you should also have checked your drive at some point e.g. with Hard Disk Sentinel (SSDs too). Have you done that?
    I second this solution. Clean install. As soon as you have issues with corrupt windows update files, registry keys etc its nearly impossible, or should I say a headache thats easier to fix with a clean install. Just my opinion.
