I ended up having to send my brand new HP DV6Z SE laptop in for repair. The screen started flickering during the bootup stage. Although, not as bad as the first couple days, it’s still flickering and it shouldn’t be doing that on a brand new laptop. I may startup the computer 15-20 times without the screen flickering, and then it’ll happen. So I hope HP can re-create the issue so they see it really does exist. I wrote them a letter and stuck it on the top of the laptop letting them know it doesn’t happen every time.

This is extremely annoying! However, if they fix the problem, I will most definitely be happy. I hope their estimated delivery date is ahead of schedule! They have 5/25/2011 down and that’s the day I leave for NYC. Hopefully I can get my computer back in time for vacation!
