Okay. I have an HP Envy 17 3D edition. A premuim laptop. But it has some annoying problems. First of all, I think the power is screwed up. Sometimes it randomly downgrades the performance to my-moms-old-computer speeds. I'm not sure why it does this, but it seems to be connected to the power. My theory is that the "Smart AC Adapter" scales back the power, which causes it to be slow. Any ideas on how to fix this performance issue? Perhaps a software mod? The point is, this is a very fast computer. 6GB of RAM, Core i7, HD 6850. It should not be running so slow.

Also, it refuses to install any EA Sports 07 games. I have Tiger Woods, Madden, and FIFA, and it doesn't install them! It gives me a DirectX error, saying I need DirectX 7 or something. I have looked, and my DirectX is fully updated. This should be a minor problem, but I can't seem to get around it. I do want to get more games for this computer, such as Portal 2, but if I can't solve this performance issue, I don't know if it will be worth it.
