    I'm not exactly a computer scientist so I'd appreciate any suggestions before I ship this thing back

    Not a professional but I am the guy family and friends bring their ailing computers to
    and I can say with certainty that laptop has something wrong with it.

    Install the latest video card drivers from AMD.

    Did you buy this new?... I sometimes get similar artifacts when I over clock the GPU too much. Make sure the GPU is not over clocked and running default settings.

    for real Willie, it’s a $400 computer and you’re browsing TMZ at 4 AM.
    “You get what you get.”

    My MacBook quit 4 weeks ago while on a biz trip and I had to make an emergency trip to Walmart for a laptop at 11 PM and came home with this...

    Browse porn & trash gossip sites with iOS instead. Trust me.

    You bought a shitty WinTel laptop but some African has clean water.

    Does Gates philanthropy really absolve him of the shitty operating system he burdened society with?

    Dude is still going to Hell.

    but seriously todge set up the go fund me because apparently half your users are in poverty and just desperately clinging on to their lenovos

    I got it new for $321 after taxes (no shipping)

    the specs were fine for me and like zap, I was always under the impression Lenovo made good, solid enterprise type machines

    will try to update drivers if I can figure out how

    so you're 1.1GHz is working better than my 2.7?

    Is it because AMD chips are shit?

    i really have no idea but I thought the specs were great for $300

    also, tried to update drivers and it said i have the newest already installed - still have issues browsing porn and 8th tier poker forums

    All kidding aside, try not to drip bbq sauce on the keyboard as you obsess over your one thread on this site.
