Every since the overheating problem with my HP Pavilion I’ve had trouble. Seems some components may have been affected. Now I’m barely on and suddenly get a screen full of vertical stripes like ugly wall paper. I’m on the search for a new laptop and will try to research the suggested ASUS. I may not be here much until getting a replacement. I’m just hoping this will post. My droid only works intermittently, although I usually can receive gmails and get on FaceBook. Will try to catch up soon. Wish me luck.
