Default Skipping/Lag/Freeze

Got a ZVM and from the start there has been freezing skipping and finally locked up. the only thing that works kind of is the FM tuner. I'm thinking it might be the HD or the batter. The battery doesn't seem to stay charged for every long.

any help pls?

Moved to correct forum.

Welcome solkannar21. What kind of a runtime would you say you are getting from the ZVM? It could be the hard drive. I would boot into Recovery Mode and do a Cleanup to see if that helps.

It's possible.... What firmware version is installed? Did the seller say why their warranty wouldn't cover this as it looks to be a hardware issue?

So, it is beyond his 30 day warranty? If it is still within his 30 day warranty period, I would press him for a replacement. It would most likely be much faster than Creative.
