I'm so sad. My D800P/8890 is going on a trip back to its birth place Taiwan. After speaking to my local clevo tech, Clevo declared my D800P DOA (Dead on arrival) because of the gradient issue and they are gonna see if they can't fix it or swop it out, Strange thing though is that Clevo said that it's not the lcd but the Graphics adapter Now here I was thinking it was the lcd problem. Hey I might be wrong but either way I should be getting my laptop back by next week friday and I'll let you guys know what happened. I hope they decide to put the UXGA lcd on call it fixed. .
