Not sure what is wrong but there may be multiple issues Got my laptop about 2 months ago.
About two weeks ago I installed Office 2007 which I think is 32bit software. Maybe unrelated but then the installer spftwork or maybe .NET Framework became corrupted so I uninstalled it but now can't install 3.5 version. Looks like it is downloaded but the system is not showing it is there at all.
