Hehe.... well, I have been messing around with this rig now for a few hours doing various *system restores* and checking out all drivers, etc. I actually did a system restore to the first point when I got this laptop, but it still had the same problems installing/playing 2 to 4 year old games. I'm not too happy right now!! My next course of action will be to do a clean install, but I have quite a few apps loaded onto the rig already that I want to keep. I am still quite a newb at most of this stuff too. I am starting a new thread on this board asking for help with the clean install. I will keep you posted if I can isolate the problem or at least get it fixed. Otherwise I guarantee that I will be sending this back. I am quite please with it otherwise and am sure this is not a normal problem with all nc8000's,but it still svcks to have to be doing this to a brand new $3000 machine.
