Okay, I've been having some problems with this computer. First things first, the fan turns on, especially when I am playing farmville, and it usually stays on and gets REALLY hot. I'm talking burning you lap hot. I've updated the BIOS twice and it only seems like a temporary fix. Sometimes I go into hibernate, but the computer stays on with the fan running.
Second when the fan continues to run, when I'm doing basic stuff, the computer has a hibernation like shut down (like the screen turns black, but the lights are still on). When I boot it back up, it has the system recovery error screen. Other things I have been having are random IE, not responding errors. Ususually it comes back up but it is very annoying. This also happens to media player. When this happens, I even have trouble using Ctl-Alt-Del. Then sometimes i get "Error-security options" or something like this, which is confusing, because i have never seen that on any machine. Check disk has also auto run on me too. I've run Norton and it detects nothing but cookies. I know this is a lot, but it is really making me angry, any help? Mucho thanks.

I have a Dv7-1262us and has been the best laptop i have ever had. The only problem was windows vista. Vista would always take a lot of system resources and make it run hotter. I am currently using windows 7 Pro and it is great. It runs very cool and is much faster than vista. I would reccomend getting windows 7 and ditching vista. Make sure to back up you files.
