I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

comment Can a 7 days full 100% CPU load "burn-in" / "stress test" damage a modern notebook?
The longer the test, the more certainty about the less lifetime; for most consumers factory diagnostics (or own 15 - 45 min tests) suffice, those that want to be more sure can go over that for high reliability purposes. There are life and time critical matters that even go further than that; but in such cases, the idea is to use an extensively tested high quality component for at most a year and then replace it to avoid to reach the shortened lifespan. That is less than the quarter of a CPU's lifespan of the average consumer; for them a lot of testing can become a waste of time and money... :(

Updated the answer by embedding my comment; yes, the details of the partition were the missing piece here.
