EMachines Complaint - Don't buy
NORWICH, CONNECTICUT -- The other reviews you read are true! The power supply gets so hot you have to remove the battery when on AC or you will either burn out the battery or you end up having issues. I was getting these white lines all across the screen and tech support suggested removing the battery when on AC. As if that isn't admitting to a problem they know about. I've only had it a year and now I can't get it to boot! It started crashing and I restored it using the disk, got a hal error on reboot, did a full wipe and install using the disk. While down loading Windows updates it crashed and got another Windows file error on reboot.
Wiped again and it locked up on installing applications. Now it gives a can't read disk error. I knew it was a cheaper laptop and didn't expect it to be fast and powerful. I just bought it to use office, simple enough. But I did expect it to last longer than a year! I should have just bought an old Dell D600, it is slow but I know some that are working over 4 years.
