    Well that was great. also I prefer to try the trial version to find out if it work than just buy it no matter if it work or not (you know a limited budget, I have to choose wisely). And hey I forgot to tell this, when I'm running the maintenance for overnight and when I woke up the screen just blank but it is turned on because I can see the cursor blinking. So I reboot (ctrl+alt+del still work) there is a lot of error in Event Viewer stating that program and drivers has been terminated. I think it already happened twice but I forgot to check Event Viewer for the first time. Is this usually happen?

    And also one more time , which do you prefer:
    1. Team Elite SO-DIMM DDR3 PC12800 4GB - TED34GM1600C11-S01
    2. Corsair SO-DIMM DDR3 4GB PC12800 - CMSO4GX3M1A1600C11
    Although The Team Elite is a bit cheaper than Corsair.

    You mean the PC didn't go to sleep(you can see the cursor)? no I haven't seen that happen.

    Yes the PC didn't go to sleep, just idle, as far as I remember I'm planning to download something at night but I forgot to woke up so it stays on (just turned off the screen with the Fn+F9 and Sleep timer set to Never), when I activated the screen it is all black until I hit ctrl+alt+del to shut it down but the screen resolution seem to changed to 800x600. It also happened when I start the maintenance (probably 2 days ago?). Do you have any idea why it happen? Is it out of memory situation?

    Sorry late getting back, I just got home from work. No I don't believe it has to do with memory. Maybe some kind of a system hiccup? Can you reset your screen resolution back to "Recommended" in control panel? How is the RAM usage been today?

    Just to check everything you could run this in an Admin. command prompt and then reboot:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause

    It will checkyour system files and clean up your WinSxS files.
    It may look frozen sometimes but be rest assured it's running. It can take some time(even on my SSD it takes about 10-15 minutes sometimes)

    Yes I can set it back to full screen resolution. For the RAM usage, here is a screenshot when I do a Word Processing and visiting this forum.
