OK, thanks for that. I just tried a clean install on my laptop and it
seems to default to being off.

Hehehe. I had to ask, just to be sure. Seems to work OK here, but I
select Italian from the drop-list.

Hardware problems are always a possibility - over-heating in hot weather
with clogged cooling vents and a tired fan, but difficult to say
without inspecting the hardware.
I had a laptop (not mine) where the hard-drive was slowly failing. The
machine started taking longer and longer to boot, a couple of
blue-screens of death (page-faults) and finally it wouldn't boot at all.
Until it failed to boot, I looked in all the wrong places for problems.
