THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS!! HP in their great wisdom voided my warranty which would have covered most of my problems on their dime. Finally I just gave up even talking with their support people. HP was once a Great company until a bunch of fools at the wheel drove it right in the ground. The only people I have any respect any more for are the Server Group based in New York. I've worked on and off with them since I got my HDX 9200 CTO as it came with a HP 475 MediaSmart Server. That still runs perfectly. Thank You Again So Much!! I actually just reloaded Windows 7 Ultimate last night again back on the Western Digital 320 GB drive in the C Drive slot.
I forgot to say why they voided my $400.00 Warranty. . . It was because I loaded Windows 7 Ultimate on the machine without their permission. I actually didn't know I needed their permission to put a new operating system on. . . It ran perfectly after I loaded it on anyway. The first problem to show up was this overheating Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTS.
Now I can see where they hung EVERYONE THEY COULD OUT TO DRY. I can only hope a few went after them in Class Action Litigation. HP destroyed their own reputation. I feel sorry for some of the very good people they did have there. I knew many of them personally.
