    has anyone had this

    when i move my laptop a bit or press higher up on the keyboard, i get static lines on the screen and then the laptop turns itself off and on.
    a little bit of movement easily stops the charging too and i have to wiggle the charging cable

    Sounds like you need a new one.

    Hey guys,

    I have a few questions. Would it be better to simply install the SSD and then re spawn or do a fresh installation? I have heard if you don't do a fresh install the OS wont be optimized. Also, how do I go about doing a fresh install on a new SSD?

    Thanks in advance!

    That really is a personal preference, but I always do fresh installations. You can do a fresh install via external dvd drive or usb drive in the bootup. If you have never done this before, you should look it up and learn about it before moving onto it. It's simple.

    If you ask for an 240w and are lucky maybe you get one but I don't think so

    You don't need a 180W PSU if you have the 970m version. It's only for people with the more powerful 980m.
