oh my gawd! so most of you know what the history with my laptops has recently been. they just replaced the motherboard on my 1730, well, it was working decently last night, then today.....BOOM! my processor was pegged at 100 percent the whole time! everything i ran was slow, 3dmark would not even run, i was getting 1-2 fps on the very first test! so...i call dell xps support AGAIN, and he tells me that the motherboard was probably damaged during shipment, and that now that has caused my processor to be damaged as well. they are now sending me another replacement for this system! i still had the old 1705 and was trying to use it since this one wasnt working well. they said they couldnt send the new one until the old one was sent back, so it'll go out tommorow. they were going to send me another processor and motherboard until his supervisior looked at the case and said wow, this guy just needs a new replacement again. so now i'm sending the old old one back, even though this one doesnt work that well either, then waiting another 2 weeks for the new replacement to show up to replace the old replacement which replaced the intital computer i bought! clear as mud? lol. i sooo want this computer to work, but damn it if i just dont have the luck it seems. i'll keep yall posted as to where i'm at.
