New laptop a brick?

I bought a HP Envy 15-q210TX on 8 August 2015 and spashed kid last week a friend a little juice of the Cup who landed on the keyboard before I could take a towel, my laptop turns off suddenly and I couldn't feed him since.

After calling the store I bought it at and HP support, repair it will cost $1543,09, which is more that I bought it for.  I again using my child of 5 years old but still usable Sony Vaio.

I swear there's a sign upward on HPs SG 50 promotions, one of them, including an extended warranty with included accident coverage at the time.  Yes, I went to a place of redemption in the Orchard Central and she bought after you bought the laptop.  Nobody seems to know what I'm talking about.  I also never got my free T-shirt of 50 SG either even if I went to the website, to save and collect, but that's another story.

Did I just spend $1400 for a brick?  Someone at - it suggestions on what I can do use?  I'm really really sad feeling about it now, because I paid for a subscription to Norton that was already loaded on your laptop and you import things on it like my completed tax forms.

Seems the service and support is a bit different to Singapore.  In the United States for comparison, I could have gone to any Costco and exchanged for a new laptop, no questions asked.   Everyone I spoke so far, does not seem to be compassionate about my situation and were not able to guide me on what other options there except to pay the exorbitant amount for repair.   I hope someone HP reads these forums and can do something about it.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

  • New laptop password AC power to the battery when you play a game.

    I got an IdeaPad P580 (i7, HDD 750 GB, 8 GB of ram, nvidia gt 630 m) a few weeks ago. A week ago I started having this problem where whenever I play a game, he's going off the AC power and the battery or vacillates between the two.

    He did this in Grand Theft Auto IV, Fallout: New Vegas and same Minecraft. Sometimes even outside of the games, but this is rare. After closing a game once, he would be off AC for a few seconds every time I opened a new tab in my browser!

    It doesn't matter what mode of energy that I use. The latest graphics drivers are installed. No matter if I use the Nvidia card or disable it in the bios and use the integrated Intel graphics card. I have tried everything I can think; I plugged the AC adapter into a wall directly instead of a surge protector, etc..

    When the laptop is, there are three lights on the front under the touchpad. The two left are usually, but sometimes when it produces in the Middle it turns red.

    If I remove the battery and just use the AC, the laptop just shut off after a second or two in the real game.

    Someone at - it ideas? Nothing at all, even if you think it's a long shot. It of frustrating to buy a new laptop and then happen, especially since the problem with my old laptop has been playing games would cut (which was overheated, which appears not to be as it is not hot).

    Hmm. you have no overclock your right to gt630?

    cutting like that usually means not enough power is supplied by the power brick, or the connection is loose.

    How many watts is the power brick?

    If the power is firmly connected, first thing to do is call lenovo and ask them to send you a new power brick.

    If the problem persists, you may have a bad mother power connector. It could be opening itself, or the connector on the motherboard.

    How many times you plug and unplug the power cord? and you do it with force? If you are not sweet, the brackets that hold the power port may crack.

  • iTunes does not support Windows 10 modern watches over tablets and newer laptops


    Since Windows 8, there is a new mode called available standby connected standby (Windows 8), InstantGo (Windows 8.1) or modern (Windows 10) from the previous day.

    Tablets with Windows and newer laptops use modern sleep every time instead of old standby mode when firstly, it turns off the screen and after a while CPU turnes off (S3 mode AFAIK).

    Computer works now similar to a phone in a Pocket, you can listen to music or get a call (Skype).

    Here is the description for developers on Miscrosoft MSDN:

    Developers need to make their applications compatible with a modern Eve, otherwise application does not work while the unit is in standby modern.

    There is a Microsoft Groove app installed music on my book of Surface with 10 Windows, he can play DRM iTunes media, and continues to play when the screen turns off. iTunes seems to be incompatible legacy applications because it stops to play my music if I let laptop intact for 5 minutes.

    I tried to explain this to a phone Apple support, but they told me that this isn't a problem with iTunes but Windows and I need to get in touch with Microsoft instead of Apple.

    I can't use my subscription Apple same music in music Groove as a solution because it is unable to read the DRM from iTunes m4p files, of course it can not directly access cloud Apple music too.

    Is it possible to transmit this information to Apple?

    I don't understand why Apple let iTunes must be installed on Windows 8 + because actually it works terrible.

    For example, it can not switch audio speakers headphones and vice versa (while other applications that correctly), there are also some problems of video output, sometimes also the iTunes window receive a second bar tiny minimize / closing maximise controls, also the search field sometimes loose the keyboard input.

    Is it possible to transmit this information to Apple?


    Support staff does not normally deal in development issues, so it is quite likely that simply, they did not understand the question.  To report it directly to Apple, use the comments link:

    When you send feedback, try to be as clear and objective as possible.

    iTunes has a huge population of Windows users, so I don't know that apple is interested.
