"Good news! Motherboard Solution!"3.0 starson by pavillionlaptop
Pros: good computer , good picture
Cons: Power cord wore out early, Motherboard went bad
Summary: I suffered the same issues as most people appear to have suffered. A bad motherboard and a $400.00 + pricetag to fix. I elevated my complaint to a Customer Care Manager and in short order HP agreed to fix my PC (OUT OF WARRANTY) for just $157.00. They paid for the shipping back to them also. Viola, new motherboard and Im back up and running.
I decided not to extend the warranty on the PC, however R E S P E C T to HP for stepping up to the plate and helping me out on a fix. (Note: Stay with the same Customer Care Manager...they sometimes have miscommunication issues if you deal with different people. So, once you get one Cusotmer care Manager STICK WITH THEM ONLY). Good luck!
