the laptop gods hate me


a year and 60 days after my warranty expires, the nvidia 8400GM graphics card on my hp laptop has fried. no matter that i have pointed out to HP more than once that the laptop does get pretty warm, and i have been using a  cooling pad/table since. no matter that graphics cards should only get fried if i really abuse them. no matter that hp’s solution to all problems is to have me send it to them, so that they can do nothing at all. maybe i should have done it earlier. maybe i should have lived without a computer for 15 days while finally tell me i need to use a cooling pad. the support team was pretty nice though, and very helpful. i am just pissed at the quality of the laptop build. $1250 for this ?

what does matter is that this laptop has been pretty jinxed from the word ‘go’. i wonder if this is a hint to move to a super-powered desktop. maybe this one. or, even better, this one.

i sad 😦

    No they don’t. I am darn sure you must have done something.

    Sorry, I was just being mean to you…. 😀

    Is the sit. any better now?

  3. Been on a super powered desktop since a while now, suggest you should do that too 🙂

    The N82 more than suffices for my mobile computing needs.(Plus, it takes photos too).
    I live in Mumbai anyway, so unless my work machine is a laptop, I don’t see lugging a lappy along in the future.

    My Toshiba Satellite is gathering dust at home. Thinking of donating it..
