I'm so sick of this laptop fucking up. It's been blue screening pretty much constantly for the past year. It keeps giving me bugcode usb drive errors which lets me know that something installed incorrectly, but I have no clue what. At its worse, last summer, it would bluescreen multiple times a day... now, it's once every couple of days, but it's still a huge annoyance because I can't risk work on my thesis proposal disappearing due to bluescreens. Last summer, I ended up changing out the hard drive because Daniel had an extra one with windows 7 on it, and while it worked fine for a while, lately, it's been bluescreening like I said, and it's giving me the same error as before. This leads me to think that it was never my hard drive failing that was the issue, it's something else.
A few weeks ago, I decided I was ready to get ride of this behemoth, and I ordered a new laptop. http://www.costco.com/HP-ENVY-dv7t-Quad-Laptop%2c-Intel%C2%AE-Core%E2%84%A2-i7-3630QM-2.4GHz%2c-Blu-ray-Player.product.100044248.html
...but it still hasn't even shipped! It was actually $899 when I purchased it, so I saved an insane amount of money. I've never had an HP laptop before, so I'm unsure of how I will like it. Same with windows 8, I have such limited experience with it that I feel like I won't like it as much until I take the time to get used to it.
I'm so ready to get rid of this piece of junk that I have now. I have dealt with this laptop's issues for far too long. I've had this thing since February 2010, and it's the longest that I've ever had a laptop. GOOD RIDDANCE. You will not be missed.
I'm ready for my new laptop to get here.
