    Memory stick loses files but not folders

    Win 10 Desktop keeps cutting out

    Sounds like windows update failing to apply over and over. Have you tried searching for "windows update" ?

    Recommended monitor replacement please

    Broken Screen replacement help - HP Pavillion

    I'd try ebay from a seller with a decent reputation or rating. Be wary of item location too, delivery could take a while from China
