Anybody bought DV6-6155 extended warranty? Planning to buy the laptop on Sat, so is it better to buy from the same shop or online ?? Please also share the cost of 2 yrs extended warranty. Thanks in advance![/QUOTE

2 years extended warranty will cost you 4830 + tax.
You can buy it online within 3 months of purchase, if you are on a tight budget, though its not actually fully online service. They have outsourced it to some third party to whom you need to make the payment. They will send you the hard copy to your address.

(please check latency if i am wrong,i checked in cpuz)
i have following options-
1)Flipkart: Gskill SQ DDR3 4 GB Laptop RAM (F3-10666CL9S-4GBSQ): Ram
2)Flipkart: Corsair DDR3 4 GB Laptop RAM (CMSO4GX3M1A1333C9): Ram
3)Flipkart: ADATA Premier DDR3 4 GB Laptop RAM (AD3S1333C4G9-R): Ram
well i read a comment that adata ram (3rd optiom) didn't work in hp probook and that worries me a lot,

Which Catalyst version did you download? Most likely it is Catalyst 11.10 - the October driver.

I am facing a frequent freezing problem with my brand new 6165tx :( It hangs quite often, 2-3 times a day. I have to force shutdown and then start. Also see the blue screen couple of time...
I have updated the BIOS and graphics driver and change the CCC to High performance.
I noticed that this problem occurs during the power failure. Usually it takes a minute to get the power supply back with the generator. There was flickering problem earlier and then I resolved it by changed the CCC setting to high performance.

Today I lodged a complaint with HP tech support and they asked me to run the memory and hard drive test. No issues so far. Now they are suggesting me to re-install the OS.

Anybody has similar experience? Appreciate your suggestions. Thanks

Hi,

I installed X-Men Wolverine Origins game on my 6165TX. It works alright, but won't run on full screen; even when I have set the resolution as 1024*768 in the game.

Please help.

Regards

Nitin
