Man, I have to admit, you're really screwed by those threads where you had argument about HP, if you remember! :)) :lol: But I'm your side :p
But I never used any bad words against them,did I?
For most of those kids,it is their first or second laptop,they love to portray themselves as major geeks and gamer,and I do respect their feelings.

Should I go for HP CARE PACK which gives me 2 years additional hardware warrant at cost of 5455 INR.
By all means!!Please report back if you are able to get the extended warranty from HP directly.
You will need it for sure.

I use a basic Belkin cooling pad for support on while handling on bed as otherwise the side ventilation is blocked. Ergostand looks pretty good to me.

time and again, guess thread title should be updated with the addition of dv6-6165tx too..:lol:
and if this be the rate in which HP rolls over its models, this is gonna make a heck of a thread name in time to come.

well now i have got 6 of my friends from different cities into buying dv6t i7 versions of HP. quite a feat! what say? :grin:

Same here buddy. Even I bought mine yesterday. Disappointed because of no backlit keyboard. How are you going to update the BIOS and CCC? I'm kinda not able to use the ATI GPU. Don't know why.

I found this on HP's website :

Error "No AMD graphics driver is installed" may appear after changing the BIOS setting to Dynamic Mode
If the notebook PC is using Fixed Mode Switchable Graphics and is configured to the power-saving or iGPU setting and then shutdown and changed to the Dynamic Switchable Graphics in the F10 Setup, the following error message may appear after the notebook has restarted:
No AMD graphics driver is installed

After the error appears, the display resolution will be reset to 800x600.
To prevent this issue, ensure that the notebook is using the High-Performance (dGPU) in the Catalyst Control Center before shutting down Windows and changing to Dynamic Switchable Graphics in F10 Setup.

To fix this problem after the error message appears use the following steps:
1.Click Start , type Device Manager and click Device Manager .
2.Click the plus sign (+) to expand the Display Adapters.
3.Right-click the Radeon (TM) HD (AMD graphic adapter) and select Enable .
4.Restart the PC when prompted.

After restarting, the error message will not be displayed and the display resolution will be set properly.

Check if the BIOS is updated, and the Fixed Mode is selected in the BIOS.
Then check if you are getting the option of Power Saving GPU and High Performance GPU in CCC.
Maybe you need to install the BIOS update. Check this link:

Hey guys i formatted(installed windows) 6121tx using a dvd downloaded from a torrent.
the problem is it never asked for key and gave me the option to install any version of windows 7 SP1. when the installation completed i ran windows activator and got to know it's already genuine. I am able to use MSE,windows media player,IE,windows update without any problem.
How is this possible?
please tell me a way to use the key of windows i bought with this lappy.

The DVD image that you downloaded was a Pre-Activated version. The Windows that you are using is not a genuine version. It shows so because of the crack applied automatically during the process of installation. Download a version which is not pre-cracked/pre-activated. Then install it using your key.

Hi guys finally decide upon DV6-6165tx :smile: and any suggestions for how much can I expect for my DV6-3050tx (the one in my signature) : every thing is fine with it except battery goes out within 1/2 hour even with just using Facebook over Wifi
Also what is the best price of DV6-6165tx

Goto "Sahara Infotech" in SP Road. You will get it for 53k including taxes. I got my 6121tx from there for 53k whereas nearby shops, HP retail shops, Staples, Croma and eZone were quoting between 54.5k to 56k. If you search in other shops nearby you may even get a cheaper deal. Search in HP India site for their contact number.
