Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello! My new laptop, that I bought less than one month ago, has already started to cause (me) problems. Yesterday afternoon, I was typing an article when suddenly the screen turned completely black. - Did you try turning it off and on again? - Yes of course, I even plugged it in so that the battery could charge. I then tried to turn it back on again, but in vain. I really need you to find out the reason why it's not working any longer, because I can't afford to buy a new one again! - Don't worry, it should still be under warranty, but let's see what we can do!

I'll be right with you...
