    Well i've had my hp laptop for about 2 1/2 weeks and i've had 2 problems with it. one of them is i had a driver error for this program i installed so i just uninstalled it. thats taken care of. and the one im having right now. only happend once. is my laptop screen randomly went black. and at the time i was playing Counter Strike Source. and on Skype and i had one FireFox open. and then the screen went black and the game froze. and skipped. but i could still talk to my friend for about 4 seconds then it acted like it was going to shutdown. but didn't so i hit the power button. and here i'am. and i really hope i can resolve this problem. oh and if i cant. do you think HP will take my laptop? i have a 1 year warrenty. but i havn't gotten the accidental damage. coverage.

    I bet the laptop was giving off enough heat out of its vents to melt an
    igloo when that happened.

    Hi there,It sounds like it could be a video driver problem or video
    card.Seeing the fact that you have freezing and blank screens.I would start
    with the driver for your video card.make sure you check with your computer
    brand.And if fails? try to system restore your computer.,That should do the
    trick.If this dose not work.Its could may well be the video card.Seeing
    though its under warrenty thay will replace it for no charge :).Let me know
    what happens.Dion

    that is definitely a video card driver crash from a hot video card.
    it's actually normal.
    you might want to adjust some of it's settings to keep it cool. you
    have them maxed out or close to it I bet.
