First Problems with 6710b

In November I encountered for the first time something I would call a "problem". The exhaust fan just wont stop whirring... and that too at a pretty high volume.

As a result I had to start looking for stuff on net..about others having similar issues... As it turned out, a lot of other people were having the same problems.

In the meantime, HP has acknowledged the problem and starting fixing the issue by replacing the motherboard in the laptop with a new one (apparantly at no cost to customer, but I cant guarantee that since I have a 4 year hp care pack).

So, now a days, my notebook is with HP for the motherboard replacement.
