Thank you for your EXTREMELY helpful advice on the support forum for Intel products. Although this is an OEM system, I have only ever had issues with the Intel Graphics card and Intel processor. I look forward to finding a laptop with a different, functioning graphics card and never purchasing an Intel graphics again.
Thanks for the great customer service...
