Spent over an hour on the phone Saturday afternoon with someone from HP (India I imagine) on my computer. It wouldn't boot up so we went through a series of tests and procedures and he concluded the motherboard was bad. The notebook is one year and 15 days old with a 1 year warranty. HP said they would honor the warranty and are shipping a Fed X Box to return. I tried to boot it this morning and it came up just like it normally would. Maddening, now what do I do?? Guess I try it a few more times and if it keeps coming up then buy the extended warranty and forget about sending it back. He said sometimes static electricity locks them up like that and he talked me through pulling the drive and two circuit boards and it did nothing to help. After it came up I ran a virus scan and did an incremental backup so if it does crap out I have the data up to date.
