How long can it possibly take to break a brand new computer? Well, you might guess a day or a week, or be optimistic and say two years, directly after the end of the warranty. It took me exactly 10 minutes to get my brand new HP 6720s notebook out of business. I got it broken before I had set it up properly! All I had to do was to close the notebook, while it was still installing, but the Windows Vista energy management was already running. The installation failed because of the power down process so Vista wants a reinstall. But HP no longer buts recovery discs into the package and due to some bug I can't access the recovery partition. Didn't think that I would need the HP service that fast...
