Hello and thank you in advance! I have had this computer just over 2 years and it started having serious issues. right after the warranty runs up of course so HP is not willing to help. Video Card went bad replaced it with a better one it was all good. The fans started running very loud and much more often didnt think too much of it just tried to keep them clean. The other day I get the Hard drive failure imminent back up files and replace.. Ok went out and bought a new hard drive from seagate 1TB same size as the Samsung that was in there. Did a Drive clone as the salesman at the computer store recomended. Worked great for about 4 hours then crased again. The first reboot came up as Hard drive failure immenint again. ran some tests seems that the hard drive was fine and the error never came up again. ran a test on the motherboard and it said the there was something wrong witht he battery in the Motherboard checked that and replaced it tests came back fine ran well for a short while and crashed again. It was also having trouble finding the Hard drive that seems to have stopped Ive checked all cords even swithced ports etc. The computer will start up and run. but it seems to run longer the longer you have it off. but always ends up stopping and then crashing. I also noticed the fans were very quiet and just running very low, where they used to rev up right away and get loud quite often. Does this sound like a known issue or something that can be fixed? New motherboard or just the battery? Could there be something in my cloned hardrive that would do this? My apologies for my hard to read ranting I may have left some out but I have been working on this for a few days now and HP service wasted alot of my time and was probably the worst customer service I have ever recieved but thats another story. Just figured I would get on here and /pray someone can help me with this. Please and Thank you :D
