    yea that d be a big pain in the for me if it's not gonna run games well as the machine is intended for, tho I'm using it mostly for video editing.

    I originally intended to get the Aorus X7 Pro, but it isn't available in Australia yet, and the Omen had a good promotion price on Boxing Day. So I do not have any special feeling towards it since what I originally wanted performs a lot more better lol.

    I wouldnt recommend DIY fixing the laptop or paying third party pros to do it since the whole machine is soldered. Its an expensive machine I'm sure HP will be more generous towards fixing and maybe even replace it.

    I wrote on the forums and a hp agent told me to call them. It seems like it's a hardware thingy. I'll see what I'll have to do.

    Just received the laptop and I also experienced BSOD when I unplugged the laptop from the power adapter. I hope this is not a recurring issue.. maybe a driver issue? Anyone else have any other insight in this?

    Try updating to the F08 bios. It has stopped happening to me, at least not for the past few days

    Sorry for asking again but on the Omen, is your Wi-Fi LED light white when it is on? It properly turns orange to indicate that it is off but when switched on, there is no light. I recall seeing a white LED light there but I may be mistaken. :p

    I updated my bios and my computer has been stuck on a black screen with all LEDS on for 5 minutes now. What do I do, leave it?
