My brother has a laptop gaming like this, and it works amazing. The graphics are very very good. Although HP are not cheap but they are worth it. Here's the link where you can go and take a look. Good luck....

The dv9000 HP's are well known for their troubles. Only buy for spare parts for your other dead dv9000 series.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
