Summary: Hi This laptop is great while it lasts, 3 or 4 years ago I bought this expecting the best, at first all worked great fantastic picture, great machine... BUT... about a year into its life, on a few startups, I would just get a blank screen. I thought nothing of it as upon restart all was ok. at about year 2 the HDMI stopped working. I assumed it was due to poor use and put it down to the socket. Now the Graphics chip has fauled completely.
