1. 2 years, 8 months before I threw in the towel and built a desktop 2. Heat/bad CPU fan. The thing was a total oven (HP Pavilion dv6), and to this day it runs at 80-90c at idle/watching a video. The bearing on the fan started rattling/shaking the computer, so I upgraded. --- RENAMON!! *weeping* YOU HAVEN'T BENT ANYONE OVER THE SINK AND SHOVED A "CHECK THE STICKY* UP THEIR ASS IN MONTHS!! *curls into ball crying*- Cither3000

I don't do serious gaming on laptops because reasons. They overheat easily and tend to be over priced for the performance. I do happen to play games on my laptop but they are not intense games at all. Mostly things like Minecraft and F2P mmo's like Ragnarok 2 and stuff. I do my serious gaming on my Desktop. --- When I'm Miqo'te http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3LGf9SSWrU

I had a laptop die that I bought from cyberpower but other than that my laptops have been good. I still have a laptop made for windows 95 that works strong. I have an ASUS laptop that is going on 3 years now. As for the one that messed up, the power jack pin broke off. I couldn't find a replacement after the first year and cyberpower said it was out of warranty even though 4 months of the time it was being repaired by them (it messed up 3 times before I tossed it). --- I5 3570k @ 4.5ghz, 12 gigs DDR3 memory, Asrock Z77 Extreme 4, 2x EVGA GTX 670 4gb SC sli, Seasonic 750w PSU, Monoprice 1440p monitor

Mine never die, I always clean them once a month or so with compressed air.
I stop using whenever I have a stronger laptop though. --- GTX Titan - PS3 - Xbox360 - Wii U - 3DS - Vita - iPhone 5 Unbiased Gamer

I think I have the same/a similar laptop and yeah it runs so hot I can't sit it on a table because it overheats and I have to use a book when it's on my lap so it doesn't burn me --- Pearl Code: 0731 1228 8254 White Code: 0862 2790 1982 SSBB: 0989-1461-9542
