After a complete system wipeout this morning thanks to a system cleanup (hah! See Avast review). I was able to restore absolutely everything with the built-in HP system recovery tool. It took a while, and I had to uninstall and reinstall Chrome (how I hate that pushy loathsome Edge) but everything came back.
We bought the above PC in December and two months later it kept reading that there was no hard drive available. We contacted HP and they handled the return and repair without a hitch. They were polite, attentive and shipped a return box. Once we shipped it to them it was repaired and shipped back to us within a week. Short of the inconvenience of having your new computer stop working I can say it was a fairly convenient process to get things up and running! Customer service was fantastic. Computer is up and running perfectly!
My latest HP purchase is the 3rd HP device I've owned to date. In the past I've had Dell, Acer, Sony, Apple, Huawei, and maybe one or two others. I've always said HP is the "Ryan Air" of computer products. The equipment is up to code but there is a lot of advertising built in that needs to be deleted before you can enjoy the product. My latest laptop, don't judge my choice, was an HP 15-db0. So, bargain basement touchscreen. It came stock with 8 gigs of ram which I intended to upgrade to 16 with the dual slots on the motherboard. Woops. While everything said the computer had two ram slots, and the motherboard does have room for two, only one is factory installed. To find out for sure that this was intended by HP and not a manufacturing defect I called HP support... Oh God, here we go.
After being bounced around from Canada tech support to Canada sales department, US tech support, back to Canada tech support and finally Canada sales department, I finally had my answer. Canadian built laptops are not designed to be upgraded with dual ram slots; A major downfall in my opinion. My last HP laptop was built for the Australian market, almost the same model, and did have dual slots. So now unless I want to throw away an 8 gig ram chip and replace it with a 16 gig chip... I'm SOL. The irony is my old laptop, now aging from travel and extended use, is actually faster than my new laptop.
Now to shamelessly plug the one HP support person who finally answered my question and didn't just try to shuffle me off to the next department. Lewis ID#: **. He wasn't allowed to give his name for security purposes so he had to give me his ID#. He's actually in the sales department but knew more about computers than the tech department. Give Lewis a raise. It's one thing to sell millions of computers a year, and a whole other to actually keep a customer service department functioning. After talking to 4 different sales and tech department staff, only Lewis got the job done. That's how your customer support! Your (still) loyal HP user, Roger.
My AC charge (150 Watt) quit working. I purchased it from BEST BUY website. I went to BEST BUY and they confirmed that the Charge failed. (LAPTOP was 6 months old and under warranty). I called HP Customer Service. Agent said, "No problem. We will take care of it." (We are out of state and my computer is my lifeline to home and banking services.) I told the agent I will pay for overnight shipping, he stated that HP cannot do that. I had the AC CHARGER and power cord in 2 1/2 days. No charge, replaced under warranty. I use the Computer for Gaming (World of Warships) and is excellent for the intense video requirements. Thank you HP.
I bought a brand new HP Envy dv6 a few years back and it was a good experience. Purchased on Black Friday. I got a great deal on it, however it started to do this strange thing with the display where it would freeze for minutes after turning on before the computer could be used... No big deal, still works and is a great product however the older it gets the longer the "warm-up". Now it takes over an hour after shutting down to boot back up but that's not the only problem. The hard drive is starting to fail and after opening the service port the problem becomes painfully obvious, a tiny bundle of cords powers the drive and provides the data transfer. The slightest bump causes the drive to disconnect and now the battery is failing and the CPU fan is failing.
This isn't abnormal for an old computer like this however today I called the HP sales department to order replacement parts and after choosing the sales department option it informed me that phone support for parts replacement is no longer available. WHAT??? My computer is in pieces and the fan is ceased up and I'm supposed to somehow GO ONLINE to order parts replacement??? Wtf. I guess they just assume people keep stacks of spare computers on hand in case one of the parts breaks.
Very unhappy that they don't provide phone support for ordering parts. It makes far better sense than providing technical support over the phone. How backwards to operate to provide tech support over the phone and parts replacement online... This is coupled with all the recent reviews I've been reading about HP products online has me hesitant at best about buying a new laptop from HP. Years ago I wholeheartedly supported and trusted this company but it seems the quality is no longer the same. Maybe all the good people left the company or the owner/CEO just doesn't give a care anymore but it's sad to see what has become of HP.

Bought a Pavilion direct from HP. Right out the box, brand new. It Took 15-30 minutes to boot up, sometimes black or blue screen during the boot. Also Takes the same amount of time to open programs or even Chrome. I've spent countless hours troubleshooting the issue. Called HP customer support when it was under warranty. They Logged on and changed some settings but didn't change the booting or slowness problems. Called again when it was not under warranty and of course they didn't help at all. Just transferred me to different people and said I had to now pay for support. They essentially sold me a lemon, it's a ** laptop and definitely the quality machine I thought I was going to be receiving. I will never be a return customer.
I would give HP 0 starts if I could. I purchased an All in One Pavilion from Best Buy less than 1 month ago. Today, my computer shutdown while I was using it and would not turn back on. I immediately contact HP for help. They asked me to shut my computer down then turn it back on. I don’t know how they came to the resolution after I explained my computer would not turn on. But I followed the instructions they gave me. The representative finally decided I needed to send my PC for repairs. When I inquired about the repair time, he said 7-9 business days. I am a full time online student. I take classes online because I work full time. I explained that I needed the PC sooner because I have midterms in 2 days and I still have a ton of class work to do. I am supposed to have a brand new computer I purchase specifically for doing homework. But, 3 weeks in, it randomly shuts down and will not turn on. Not reliable at all.
After explaining this to the representative, he told me I can expedite the process to 4-6 business days but I need to $50 + taxes. This does not include the shipping time. My mind is completely blown. I’m sold a defective computer but I need to pay to have it repaired. So here I am, I have to call out of work for the next few days so I can go to the library and take my midterms and finish my regular class work. I am losing money but I need to pay HP to fix my PC. I asked for a refund considering it has been less than a month and I will send the PC back. They refused to offer a credit, refund, or exchange. I will NEVER purchase anything from HP again. Terrible customer experience. HP needs to do better for their customers and properly train their employees to deal with situations that goes off the script a little.
I received my laptop as a gift for my birthday. Considering the hefty price and sleek design I expected an upgrade from my MacBook. This was not the case. The computer would never work and shut off after 5 or so minutes. After sending it in multiple times to get fixed, I was met with customer service and employees who could not care less that I wasn’t able to use the computer after months of trying. Finally fed up, I sent the broken computer in for a refurbished or “fixed” computer that had a previous owner. The computer was delivered with multiple dents in the side as well as an over-active fan that would move you to insanity. I will most likely not be buying any HP products in the future.
We purchased a new HP laptop in May, 2017. In March, 2018, the hard drive had to be replaced. At that time, we purchased the HP Extended Care Pack Service. My daughter is a full-time online college student. In April, 2019, she started experiencing problems - one month after the expiration of the extended service. When finals were over, we took it to a local repair center. The diagnostic showed the hard drive once again needs to be replaced. This computer is moved and transported very little, as she does online school. Today, I spent just under 2 hours on the phone, being transferred to 7 different people, who were ultimately all unable to provide any assistance. The last representative told me her computer was not worth repairing, and should be replaced. FULLY at MY expense. It will CERTAINLY NOT be with an HP. Poor quality laptop and even poorer customer lack-of-service.
Horrible!!! Scam! First they guarantee you... They know they can fix your issue over the phone... Just to get you to pay $35 activation fee and $14.99 membership fee! Then turn around and tell you "Oh it's a hardware problem not a software problem. We can't fix your computer over the phone. You have it sent off and pay for it to be fixed." If you cancel membership they will tell you to wait 72 hours for billing dept to call you! Damn rip off! I will never by a HP again! I don't even want it as a gift!
I bought a HP laptop before. 1.5 year I used my laptop in a office. After 1 year my TouchPad color miss print. I complained to HP center care. They told me, "Your laptop is don't in a manufacturing warranty so we can't change touch pad in a free." They give me that price for touch pad panel 6000 but I told them so many time this is a manufacturing defect 'cause laptop touch pad color miss print. This is not my fault. HP use a bad quality print on laptop. My very disappointed for that. I suggested you friends please don't buy a worst bad HP laptop. My fed up with this. Thank you.
I purchase a laptop just a couple of months ago. I upgraded the memory to 32 gigs. I bought it through a reseller on Amazon. To upgrade the laptop, apparently the reseller didn't use original HP memory. Or at least, that is what I am being told. My memory card failed. I sent my laptop in for warranty work and paid to expedite so that I wasn't without it for three weeks or longer. However when it came back, it came back with 24 gigs of RAM and not 32. I called HP and they informed me that they will take out any upgrades a reseller does but not replace them since it's not an HP product. So the upgrades I paid for, I no longer have. HP support didn't seem too worried about it. So make sure you know that you may not get what you pay for. NEVER AGAIN!!!!
Purchased an HP 15-f233wm laptop in March 2018. After removing all the HP bloatware it seemed to be doing ok; Up until March 2019. Finally decided to order Recovery software from HP as I wanted to restore it to original factory new condition, which the recovery partition didn't want to do. Spent $46.38 on a 16 gig flash drive on March 26, 2019 which was to be self-booting but would not boot or even be recognized. Called HP and asked for replacement on April 5, 2019 and was told, after being transferred to three different people over an hour's time, that the warranty had expired and they could not even sell me another. Said I should throw the drive away and they'd issue refund. Called again on April 15, 2019, talked with a Jasmine, after being transferred around again, who again told me they'd issue refund.
On May 1, 2019 called Smart Fried Billing number, was told they don't do refunds and was transferred to some other dept, however they did tell me to ask for a supervisor. Boy, they sure don't like to transfer you to any supervisor. Finally got a Louise who said she was a supervisor and was told I'd get an email and refund within 24 to 48 hours. Called again today, May 6, 2019. First I asked if they were in the United States. Nope! In India. Seems HP has no number you can call to talk with anyone in the States. Finally looked up corporate office in Houston, Texas. This time I got connected to Canada. At least it's in North America and speaking English. Have you ever tried to follow someone speaking with an Indian accent? Kinda frustratiing. Anyway finally refund was issued today. YEAH! Has totally soured me on HP products. Ironically, I just bought an HP Pavilion desktop two weeks ago. Woe is me!
It's NOISY, with a constant whirring hum SOUNDING LIKE a cat constantly m-e-o-w-I-n-g!! Irritating to say the least. I wouldn't purchase because of this. It is pretty SLOW as well, knew I wasn't getting top of the line but thought it may have been faster than my 9 year old Toshiba laptop. When I complained about this to harvey norman tech. Who had done "Old to New - Data Transfer" $49.00 and "New PC setup" $98.00. He advised I could pay to take off background stuff off that MAY improve slowness!!! NOT AT ALL HAPPY.
I bought this laptop for school. I work full time, and go to evening classes for my MBA. This has been the worst computer I’ve ever bought. Do not buy it if you are pressed for time or under pressure because it will just add to your stress. Within the first week, it wouldn’t turn on at all because it was not compatible with the Windows update so I had to take it to Best Buy to Geek Squad and was late to a class meeting. It updates frequently and usually takes over an hour—and is always at inopportune times. I’ve reset the timer to only update in the early morning hours but yesterday I turned it on, and it starts updating AGAIN at 5pm, so I couldn’t get to my work.
I feel like every time I turn the computer on, it’s a guessing game to see if it will work properly or not, and if I’ll be able to do my work in the short window of time I have. Yesterday, I had to restart it again because it wouldn’t open my documents. (this happens often) Spend a few extra dollars or go with a different brand. If you are looking for a product that will make your busy life less stressful, this isn’t the one-it’s too undependable. Like how right now, the internet keeps loading and timing out on the computer, even though its working perfectly fine on my phone so I could finally write this overdue review. The one good thing I can say is I like the facial recognition to sign on.
From Oct 2018 thru Dec 14 2018 the drivers keeps failing! MS (Microsoft did a update fixed it). March this year PC crashed multiple times due to an update that was NOT for my PC! Lost $10,000 in MP3s and many other stuff I couldn't get back. When I got my PC back from their REPAIR shop I took it out of the box to see it wouldn't turn on! They sent it back into repair and the manager of the repair shop claimed that the ram sticks was out of the PC socket due to FedEx! After they ran a bunch of tests they shipped it back to me! They USED the same box that it was in the 1st time! They claimed it was a NEW box and FedEx damaged it!
HP I would NEVER EVER EVER buy again! With a 1 star rating at the B.B.B. who knows how many complaints there still are! At this point in time still have nothing but issues! Contacted HP many times with 0 RESULTS! BUYERS BEWARE OF companies like HP! Am thinking of going public with this! Also FYI I sent HP files of proof that my PC wasn't working from my Google drive and when I went into the folder they have been removed! Removed NOT DONE BY ME!!!!!
Terrible customer service. My son's laptop is a month away from the warranty expiring and the screen decides to go black. After trying the self help options (this obviously is common) he had no luck restoring the screen. I've reached out to customer service x 3 and keep getting, "It's been escalated to the management team and someone will call you back." I bet they will as soon as my warranty expires. I will NEVER purchase another HP product again!
I have had these product for 2 years now, and I hate them. They are unstable, extremely slow, and randomly losing Internet connections and/or freezing (and NO, it has nothing to do with my Internet service - it's super fast and reliable). The computer does NOT completely shut down when I command it to do so (it goes to sleep, at best), BUT, it DOES completely shut down when I leave it on, with the lid open. So, I lose battery charge unnecessarily due to the failure to shut down, and I lose all the open windows (Internet and applications) when I am counting on the computer staying on, which forces me to reboot the computer (which takes forever) and create my work. I realize that MS can play a part in this fiasco, and I despise everything made by MS; it is such a piece of garbage, and it is a shame that Bill Gates has made hundreds of billions on it. It speaks to the stupidity of people, including business leaders who continue buying this crap.
I have recently had one of the worst customer experiences ever when dealing with HP. I purchased an HP laptop and an expensive extended warranty. When I started having trouble with the computer the chat tech team seemed to help me. They advised me to use their own HP backup software to back up my personal files and then they wiped my computer. The HP software indicated that the back up was successful yet when I went to restore the files, I get error messages.
When I talked to HP they indicated that only their second level people can assist me with this, and they cost money. The price is $14.95 per month for 12 months. ($179.40). Remember this was HP's software. Software that locks your files and makes them so you can't access them without payment, is known as ransomware. HP is operating a scam using ransomware, so beware!
You will get what you pay. I have Pavilion the laptop. This laptop is no good. There was a problem with the speaker, the Internet and the touch mouse keeps freezing. This morning, the computer did not recognize the earphone when I put it in. I had to restart it. Restarting made my Microsoft office file not being saved properly. You should Never buy HP laptop. You will pay what you pay for. Something is wrong with HP.
I helped my elderly friend who is deaf purchase a laptop from hp.com. I spoke with a salesperson. He messed up the order. I had requested a solid state hard drive. We even had a discussion about the solid state. I was telling him how the solid state was much faster than an HDD hard drive. He agreed with me, and upgraded me to the solid state. Well much to my surprise when it arrived he sent me an HDD hard drive. It was supposed to be customized. I immediately called HP. Spoke with a sales agent. That was fruitless. Demanded a supervisor. Spoke with Jake about it. He tried to convince me to stay with the HDD. I said emphatically NO! Said he had to speak with his team to see what they could do. Said he would call me back same day or at very worst, next morning. He never called.
I called several more departments and finally spoke with a not so friendly supervisor in the resolution dept. She spoke with Jake while I waited on the phone. She came back and said that he was taking care of it and would call me back same day. I said to her, "are you absolutely sure that he will call me back today, because so far no one has returned any of my calls?" She assured me he would call last Friday. It is 3 days later, and he never called me back. I have been on the phone with them for five days now, I believe. They're not honoring their warranty. They don't even have the decency to call me back. Think twice before getting an HP product. Their customer service supervisors, and their resolution dept. supervisors are dreadful. And it appears that they have no intention of honoring our warranty on a brand new laptop computer.
I needed a new laptop for starting my new business. My old Toshiba was getting a little slow, however it gave me 8 years of perfect service! I thought I would upgrade to something that had ZOOM and lots of ram and decided to try an HP. By chance, as I was surfing the web on my good ole reliable Toshiba, I found out that HP was having a blow out sale that was about to end in the next 7 hours and I wanted to take advantage of saving 50%!!!! A $1500 laptop on sale for just below $800 and it was not refurbished!!! After going online and adding all kinds of updates and more Ram with the latest i-7 Intel 8th Gen chip, the total came back up to about $1250. Still a bargain!! I was very happy!
UNTIL!!!! I get an e-mail days later stating that my order was declined and gave no reasons. After calling the 1-888 phone number, and waiting on hold forever, I was finally told that my order was declined because of safety issues with my credit card/mailing address and they thought it could be fraud. They offered to contact my Bank and verify everything with them through a 3-way conversation and I said, “PLEASE! Get on with it.” Another 45 minutes later, with all parties satisfied it was me and my credit card, I was told that the order would go back for approval through the mediator in the credit card department at HP and I should hear back soon!
Forward one week and I decided to call again to see the status of receiving my much needed new laptop. After being on hold again for another eternity, I found out that they decided not to allow the purchase to go through because that is their business policy. I said, “How about if I go back online and reorder the laptop and start from scratch” and they still declined! They told me if I want an HP I should go to Best Buy or Office Depot!!!! ** that! I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER HP PRODUCT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE AND I SUGGEST THAT YOU DON'T EITHER! Customer service does not exist in the United States any longer! And the funny thing is, I was going to purchase about ten more laptops for my office employees if I liked the one I purchased for myself. They just lost about a $20,000 sale! I'm sticking with Toshiba! PS.... and the $1250.00 charge is still on my credit card!!!
I purchased the HP Envy x360 laptop. I have a computer based job and wanted a new laptop to start this job. Decided to give HP a try. The first 2 months I loved the computer, all worked well. Then it started kicking off the internet just randomly. It kept telling me the issue was the wifi network adaptor. After troubleshooting it myself for over an hour I called customer support. They walked me through the steps for fixing it for over an hour and then decided I needed to send the computer to them. They FedEx'd me a box to return it to them in. They said it would be 10 days before I would get it back. If I don't have a computer I do not work...and do not get paid. All I got was a "sorry". I lost a day of work that day. I went to Rent-A-Center and rented a laptop for 2 weeks at a cost of $40.
My computer returned via FedEx and all was good again, for about a month. Then it started kicking off the internet again and saying it was the Wifi network adapter. I called customer support again and asked if they could provide me with a new computer or give me my money back. They said no. My only option was for them to FedEx another box to me and send it to them. I was irate at this point. But it did no good. They FedEx'd me a new box and I sent it to them....and back to Rent-A-Center I went. And that's where I am now....waiting for my laptop to be returned.
If they need to have my computer sent back twice why can't they FedEx me a loaner computer while they fix mine. Obviously they had no problem FedExing an empty box to me....just send me a loaner so I don't have to rent a laptop while they fix their terrible product. I would never buy HP again. They do not treat their customers right.
Brought my laptop about 2 months ago. Have just started my business and have only used the computer about 3 times until it just stopped working. Shocking service and no one seams to be interested in helping. Told them we will bring the computer back and get a refund only to be told that the 7 day warranty is up and they will not refund me. I am horrified that the service and attitude is so disgusting. HP will not hear the last of me!!!
Purchased my HP desktop Pavilion 590 on 10/23/2018 with manufacture warranty. I'm pretty savvy about computers not an engineer or programmer. On 30/18/2018 my desktop become infected with hackers. Only thing first contact with HP online chat kept trying to do was sale me extended warranty when had 9 months on purchased system. Next contact was on call were asked about certified repair options near me HP agent made every attempt to tell me that needed send system into HP. Avoided my question many times and tried sale me extended warranty was getting frustrated with little help.
After 5 attempted recoveries and one rest keeping folders and eventually full reset. My system became more and more filled with issues' HP diagnostic support had been blocking Microsoft updates from minute bought system. When pop ups of successful updates would show completed. HP diagnostic had not allowed any current updates for system or drivers and didn’t display any security alerts. Since October of 2018, found that all HP printers had been compromised to allow access into operating systems. Found details about this along with entire list of units affected this was all of them. Having a HP 2652 printer scanner registered as well with HP both desktop and printer were not shown have issues.
HP during the next few days had called. Spoken several agents 2 different supervisors. By this time 03/22/2019 had supervisor tell me had hackers in my system for sure. They had known about the issues for systems for 3 weeks now and their Tech department had no idea how to fix these issues. Supervisor went on inform me the 18 pages of notes took and sent with desktop for repairs. This call was inform HP hadn’t received shipping box a day after date of delivery had passed. Was instructed ignore box if showed at home. This supervisor was sending a new shipping box and escalated ticket with box. This was not true. The Supervisor never sent another box. Had call again. This supervisor was stern and rude. Was informed to us the original box and found an email from first Supervisor that arrived day earlier using same shipping info.
Was not able to check emails or be online, system was freezing and locking up. After sent system off found info about repair and status check, day after getting email about receiving system with 04/06/2019 return date, next day get email HP is extended my return date. Then watch my computer sit in repair status of being on hold for 4 days. Contacted HP online through another computer asking about status. Got no respectful response but they would take my repair off hold. Original topic of discussion between HP online was changed to nothing that had written and agent closed case when asked for copy of conversation sent to my email. When they replied back they would and they didn’t.
03/31/2019 Where find through HP website put my system info into support to locate my device and look at tabs to left that originally didn’t have much info before. There is list of known security issues that are not a couple more then 20-30 from a range of issues from 10/2018 to current date. Many have listed affected devices as most all laptops, and desktops where this being one of many;"1. Information Disclosure, Denial of Service, Escalation of Privilege. Source: HP, HP Product Security Response Team (PSRT). Reported by: Seunghun **, National Security Research Institute. VULNERABILITY SUMMARY Potential security vulnerabilities have been identified with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that allow an unauthorized third party to modify the TPM configuration following an S3 Resume, allowing unauthorized access to the system and its data.
Pending: Softpaq is in progress. Under investigation: System under investigation for impact, or Softpaq under investigation for feasibility/availability. Not available: Softpaq not available due to technical or logistical constraints."
The not available: HP response due to technical or logistical constraints is most responses regarding many of issues. Last supervisor spoke with told me they were not technical repair or able to repair programs. At best they will replace a driver. Reinstall original operating system. Where HP programs are creating vulnerabilities and security issues along with interfering with Microsoft operating systems to do basic updates and allow Firewall function properly. This allowed disabled Bluetooth, WIFI, radio, mobile broadband all disabled to randomly be abled to reactivated and running in background not aware until run across again. Since the Pavilion 590 desktop has the same operating system as desktop. Allows for Bluetooth be able be used hack the system from anywhere in world with nothing anyone can do stop it.
Contacting Microsoft to on 04/03/2019 due my purchased 365 subscription no longer worked due to using MacAfee Security came with system from full rest and folders using D drive to use the factory partition file create clean start. MacAfee found Microsoft programs had 254 files fraudulent, missing registry over files. HP had 88 files the same and Internet Explorer same with 2 files. That’s with a partitioned part of first set up with clean system supposedly that turned out corrupted from the beginning since had have an internet connection to set up where the computer was supposed work better with email account to get full benefits of full security and operating system.
HP clearly has problem with informing customer the truth and being able to fix issues with their outdated operating programs that are supposed work with others like Microsoft, Intel. HP is well aware that my system had security on it and that their inability fix issues from October 2018 or share with others like Intel and Microsoft to gain needed fix for security vulnerabilities. Why all the previous messages of anger and frustration are posted. when users look up these posted issues under support/troubleshooting register their device to left see list tabs look under known issues there are two different tabs anyone will be able see list of issues with no solutions to many meaning all these instructions to send devices in for repairs will be more likely replaces parts with little to no guarantee issue will be resolved.
Updated on 04/01/2019: Further to my last review on HP Uk I finally got to speak to someone called Gui in customer service about my 31 day old laptop with 3 year care pack costing over £1500 today with its four faults. It's only took 5 days as their customer service does not have a number you can ring. You have to wait for them to ring you. I was told if I wanted HP to do anything I would have to give up my rights of a replacement or refund and expect some small cosmetic damage and they would collect and repair my laptop. Sounded A lot like blackmail and bullying to me so I refused. I did say they can collect and repair but I not agreeing to that and would continue my complaint. Gui refused and said it's that or nothing. HP should be ashamed and Gui should be sacked and charged with blackmail and bullying. He then hung up on me and I no better off. Still broken laptop. Care pack not worth the paper it printed on. I feel ripped off and bullied by HP. More to follow.
Original review: 4 major faults after 30 days of light use. Just do not buy anything from Hp. Cheap rubbish with large price tag. No customer service to talk of. When it breaks down and I mean when not if you try getting Hp to sort it out even if it is only 1 month old they will do anything to get out of fixing it even with 3 year care pack. Total joke.
This laptop was bought 2 years ago. It always has a problem. I've called nearly every 2 months to get assistance due to many different problems. The last several times I was on the phone over 2 hours! Last 2 times due to the problem the tech notion wanted me to remove the battery which is impossible because it takes a certain size of a tool. I am planning on calling HP again to discontinue their support that I have paid each month $14.99. They have recovered the laptop 4 times since it was purchased. I am retired, and am very dissatisfied with this laptop. If you prepare to purchase a laptop, I do not recommend a HP laptop.
I have a HP Notebook - 17-bs025cy. We it was run slow and not opening files. I tried restoring it to a later date. I did that but forgot my phone password. I called HP for help. Well I was told that they would only help me if I would give them $49.95 right now and another 14.95 because I let my warranty expire. This was my second laptop from HP. Never again will I miss them. Hewlett-Packard is running a extortion ring. Over 5 years I’ve been with them. Never again.
I recently purchased an HP PAV 590-P0086 DT PC desk top computer with the Windows 10 operating system. It was set up for me to be as close as possible to the Windows 7 that I was used to. I had everything arranged the way I wanted it and it was doing fine until last night all of a sudden for no reason it reverted back to the tablet format of the windows 10. At the time I bought the computer I was assured that HP would provide free support for one year.
I called HP last night and I was on hold for an hour then got disconnected twice before I finally got an agent. I explained to the agent that I wanted the screen to be brought back to the way I had it as I had no idea where to find any of my documents and folders with the way the screen had changed. She had me plug and unplug power cords, tap the F10 key until a set up screen came up. She then did something else I do not know what, but nothing made any difference. She kept putting me back on hold coming back and still no solution.
It was obvious she knew nothing about computers. I think a two year old had more knowledge than she did. She finally said she would transfer me to another level support. The next agent that came on line said that I would now have to pay a fee for support. I told him that the computer was barely two weeks old and I was not going to pay them another dime. It was not a cheap computer and I was promised support. I then hung up.
The next day I called Tech-to-Us a computer support company based in Conn. It took their agent all of about two minutes to fix the problem. He told me to click on the square in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, check to see if the tablet button was blue and if it was click on it to grey it out. I did what he said and problem was immediately solved and my old screen layout returned. I have had several HP products printers and computers but I am through. I think it is pure fraud to offer support and then hire ignorant and stupid agents under the pretense that they can help you.
As simple as the solution was there is no excuse for you agent not to have solved it. As far as I am concerned HP is fraudulently advertising support by totally unqualified and ignorant agents. Thank goodness for an honest and knowledgeable support company like Tech to Us Support. By the way HP agents also wiped out my external back up hard drive by not advising me how to remove it safely. I will never buy another HP product again and never ever pay for any HP support contract again either. You can consider me and “ex HP customer." TB Florida
Brought my new laptop home and spent the typical day to get it loaded and configured to my liking. Felt pretty good about my purchase until day 3, when one of the keyboard keys stopped working. I should have known what I was in for at that point. After being on tech support for several hours, HP agreed that the keyboard was in fact faulty. I must be a genius, because I knew within the first 5 min. I will say the tech support guy (I think it was Tony from Ahmedabad) was courteous throughout the whole mind-numbing experience. Anyway, I was allowed to return my 3 day old broken machine and get a new one. I think I actually felt lucky at that point. Took another day to get it configured to my liking.
Luckily the hardware has been seemingly trouble-free since day 3. Unfortunately; the software is for crap. I'm not sure if this is a Win 10 issue or a HP/Win 10 issue, but I use this laptop once every week to once a month. I'm sure that somehow this is my fault, but I swear almost every time I try to jump on this laptop to do something, it either forces me to wait for an update, or it takes 5-10 minutes to boot up. I do not have much software on the machine. I have had faster 386's. Something isn't right, but nothing appears to be wrong. Anyway, buy something else unless you have plenty of time to waste. I hope this helps someone make a better purchase.
