I think it might be wise to remove the 7150m card from the compatibility list. Including this .62 package, I haven't had one not BSOD me regardless of how "nice" I was installing it since the 180's came out.
I started using Foxit 2 years ago when I got fed up with waiting 1 minute for Acrobat to load up 30 libraries. I can't remember though whether Foxit was immune to this exploit though.
And, of course, you should never open pdf's from random people
Personally I think FF 4 is so far in the future that we could speculate until we all turned blue in the face and I don't think we would be close to what the final version looks like. I don't care what they do to the UI so long as they give me a way to keep it looking not like Chrome. My eye, instead, is on faster startup performance, not needing to restart to install addons, better RAM reclamation, etc.
Don't forget Flash 10.1 Beta 2. I was hoping the beta series would give my netbook more of a fighting chance at full screen youtube but no luck. In fact it almost seems like the betas require more cpu than the non betas.
And on the plugin front Shockwave was updated last week or so. And Silverlight 4 developer http://filehippo.com/download_silver...9491a5395a524/ claims to boost fps by 2x over previous versions.

Personally I don't want to vote for my views as to the "best" gaming keyboard ever. Different people like different typing mechanics (scissor, membrane, mechanical), features, extra keys, etc, so it's really tough to...
2009 was rather strange for me in that I didn't read about any tech products that really wowed me. Sure you had stuff like Windows 7 (whose interface was a giant yawn for me) and screaming fast video cards (yet somehow you still can't build a decent gaming machine for less than $500), but I still feel empty. I'm captioning 2009 as the year of tweaks but not innovations for that reason.
I do give a thumbs up to FF 3.5 stuffing it to Chrome's speed. 3.6b5 (using now) is...
But will it play crysis?
Its a bit amusing that they claim "boosted productivity through more screens". Correct me if I'm wrong but don't all notebooks have some sort of video out port that can be used as a second dual view monitor?

Indeed it is extremely difficult to get a BIOS virus let alone not knowing that it installed itself since BIOS flashing is by no means a stealthy activity. I wish we could have figured out conclusively what caused the OP's problems. My money was on the hdd controller.
If you feel very crazy, you could attempt to "wash" the computer base in distilled water (since pure distilled water doesn't conduct electricity) and let it dry out overnight. I would of course first take out the wireless chip, harddrive, dvd drive, keyboard etc.
To answer your question about the BIOS...you shouldn't need to update. My dv6646us uses ddr2-5300. You can find them at newegg.
"You should def. upgrade your memory to at least 4GB of RAM. 2Gb is pretty low these days, esp if you're running Windows 7."
I have to respectfully disagree with you. These are budget notebooks to begin with, so its not like anyone is going to try running crysis and photoshop at the same time here. In fact, I don't think I've ever used more...
