Hi, I have an old laptop and it never gave me any problems until now. Whenever I turn it on, an error would occur telling me to restart again. I cannot use it since I am told to do this every time I open my laptop.
Is there any way I can save this laptop or should I start looking for another one?
Old laptop asked to restart everytime it is turned on
Since you have said that your laptop is old then it seems you have been using it for a long time. It may be having problems with the BIOS which could be failing, or the processor and other devices like the fan have become faulty.
So what I will advice is that you do a thorough check of the system devices from the hard disks, processors, motherboards, to fans and other components to find out if they are faulty so that you can rectify them.
You should also check to ensure that the operating system does not have problems, for instance being affected by the programs you installed recently or updates which you might need to remove if they are the ones causing the problem.
