I spent about $700 on a GOOD DEAL on a brand new HP laptop in October 2011 and would you believe that this is the SECOND time I’ve had to send it in to get fixed? TWICE in a year my cooling fan has broken! I could understand that if I was blocking the vents on the bottom of the computer or misusing it some way but this just keeps malfunctioning. Setting it on a flat clean surface should NOT cause your computer to overheat!! ARGH! I am SO thankful to Best Buy for letting me borrow my current laptop for a few more weeks until I get my other one back from HP. Has anything like this happened to you? Have you a bought a brand new computer only to have it break down multiple times in the first year? I have always bought HP but I am NOT happy with them right now!!
I thrive on the familiar technology that I am used to so I am finding it difficult to use my new temporary laptop the same! So if my posts look a little funny just ignore them! :) I’m still trying to figure out how to screenshot and move things around on this new laptop!
