    I think you're right, thanks for trying to help me out, also thanks to everyone else who tried to help me. I think I am going to have to return the laptop after I speak with someone so I was wondering if anyone else has sent their laptop in for repairs and how long I should expect them to take to return it.

    Yeah...one year warranty. I got my Envy for less with a four year! It's an OK deal...but at some point, you want to upgrade at least RAM and HDD.

    bacnation, if you had this laptop 21 days or less, you can return it for a full refund or exchange. Under 21 days, NEVER agree to a fix, they most likely will end up damaging the laptop one way or another.:rolleyes: Just ask for a brand new shiney Envy. :)

    KJ :cool:

    This is sort of random but has anyone else noticed a lot of small scratches on any disk you put in your envy? (Around the outer edge)

    I've had The Sims Medieval in for over a month. Just checked and no scratches.

    Jose great to see you back! congratulations on your new Envy -- interesting things have been happening over here, esp with regards to throttling tests.

    I have an HP NAS for about 5 years now, and its been flawless. sits on my wireless network and I just set up a backup job to copy stuff over. but if backup is all you need, there are ways to attach a USB drive to certain wireless routers, which I might do when the old HP gives up. good luck on your're search I'm sure the streaming capabillities today are much improved over what I have :D
