I got a dv6t-6100 a few days ago, and have had some problems with it.
Twice now when opening the laptop (it should have been asleep) I have found it blue screened.
The most recent time, Windows booted to recovery mode because it was unable to start after I powered it off. I let it run though (though didn't let it make any changes) and all the while, the HDD LED was orange. Luckily it rebooted cleanly the next time, and still the HDD LED was orange for probably 10 or 20 minutes.
I've read two types of responses to this - the first that it means the drive is spun down because it thinks its falling, and the second that this indicates a motherboard failure. Which is correct? The laptop was perfectly still the whole time it was rebooting. Note that none of the included utilities show errors with the hard drive.
