Hi there - I'm not expecting a solution from this post, just curious as to your opinions
on what might have happened or if you've experienced the like before.
I have a
laptop, designed and built for audio purposes, that I use to perform live with. One gig it
just wouldn't work - first time I turned it on it seemed OK until I loaded my Live set -
it thought about it for long time then switched itself off without loading the set. Each
subsequent attempt to start it up failed as it switched itself off a few seconds after
Windows was loaded. It probably didn't stay on longer than 30 seconds any time. It
wouldn't restart normally, and wouldn't / couldn't identify or fix any errors that had
When I got home the next day, I turned it on expecting to
have to do some major recovery work, but after explaining windows was going to search for
and fix any errors, it was fine. Since then I have had no problems.
if it stemmed from the Live file I tried to open. I had been using 'save as' to save a
series of different sets for different gigs and wonder whether after doing this multiple
times I had confused things regarding audio file location etc. Ever since I have been very
careful to 'collect all and save' and make sure all files etc are in the appropriate
project folder where they need to be.
All just speculation - it is hard to
identify the problem as it hadn't happened before or since!
Any thoughts to add
to my amateur speculation?
