My question is this, and be gentle to a non-geek, yet 'puter-living southern blond:
I have a HP m8277 desktop w/ 2408 24" monitor. Love it. Comes w/ Vista and I do like Vista. I tend to be upgrade-happy, BUT, I usually wait until the first wave of bugs have been been worked out .
BUT, *if* I want the option to upgrade to Windows 7, I want the expert advise from HP and friends on these 3 questions:
a) should I upgrade to Win7?
b) why upgrade to Win7? (what's sooooo improved? Vista WAS a major improvement)
c) disadvantage to upgrading to Win7?
Not posing these q's to Windows people. They say everything is easy and do-able, and in my experience, that just is not true.
Appreciate the help. Remember to speak in boring-to-you, but 3rd grade chatter.
Thanks one and all.

OK there seems to be a pattern here of people complaining and not much responce. I've been running windows 7 for a few months now. I have a pavilion p6185, quad core, 1TB HD, 4gig RAM, the list goes on. I also have a HP 2009 widescreen LCD monitor. I should be having no problems right?
While connected to the internet my screen often goes blank for a few seconds then comes back on. It's like the power cable is loose but it's not. It's not just the power supply, it's a falut. It only happens if i'm online, not when i'm working offline. Also on occasion my system compleatly crashes. The screen goes fuzzy as if there is loads of interfearance then goes to sleep, i have to close my system and restart.
Any ideas H.P? Should I change my OS to XP because H.P is not compatable with Windows 7?

..don't get angry with Technical Phone Support Respresentatives personally, we're just following the process. It's our job.
While I'm on this forum, I'm not speaking for HP, I'm speaking for myself.. XD

Now that Windows 7 has officially released, you should see much more info available on HP.com and HP Customer Care regarding drivers, how to upgrade, and other FAQs.
