I also have the same problem. So I called HP once again.
The man told me that the HP engineers have recently started to look into
the problem and a possible recall may happen soon. If anything, the best
we can do is continually voice this problem as the word seems to be getting

Here is a link to an article I found on problems with NVIDIA graphics chips (there are other links to related articles there):http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/703/1028703/nvidia-g84-g86-bad

Call 1-866-671-7362. This the number to qualify for a free repair. Don't call the support number. The above number is the HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement. There's hope if you contact HP using this number.
