    Windows 8


    Wow thank you all, so many experts and knowledgeable people here. So I'll just leave the laptop as it is? But the weird question is: Does the contents of the RAM not written to the harddisk when shut down if battery is not inserted? It seems to me that the up-time of the CPU only continue to count ONLY IF the battery is inserted.


    Btw, a little OT: what's UEFI?

    UEFI: Unified Extensible Firmware Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In short it should replace the BIOS on newer systems allowing faster transfer modes on boot.
    It was about time to improve/replace the BIOS which principles are mainly the same since the 70s when it was first introduced.
