Hewlett-Packard Company Complaint - Considering an HP Laptop: Stay Away
I have a 14 month old HP Pavilion DV4-1431 which won't power. After checking the usual possible problems (power chord, battery, etc.) I took it to a computer technician who confirmed me my worst nightmare: a defective motherboard that needed to be replaced. Checking postings on the internet I learned that this is a very common and well known problem with this product. HP does not want to admit that this is a defective design and would not take care of it. With a fixing cost of over $400 and with the likelihood of ending up with the same problem in a few months.
I came to the conclusion that my best option is to discard this useless notebook, never again buy an HP computer, and warn other consumers of this ripoff. Shame on you HP!!
