. The other day they asked me to fix a Sony VAIO laptop. the owners complained that he "dulls and hangs".
It turned out that before me, the laptop was in the crazy hands of the enikeyschik, who. having been transported for 3 months! for some reason, demolished licensed Windows 7 and installed a pirated one.
But it’s not even that he established a pirate "Windu", and that he did it very, very clumsily, managing to drop the performance index of a branded laptop (2-core processor, 4GB RAM) up to 1.0.
