not to make issue here
but i prefer to buy HP computers
becuase i know how to deal with it
and know what to do
but for some other computers beside HP
some say they have good luck
on them but for some until
there is some trouble with their unit
which I have heard plenty stories
HP computers is what i will buy
and the stuff I can do is something
that other computers do not have
the old golden days when 95 and 98 was
around there were good other beside
HP and now some of them are not as good as
what HP has to offers i can name a few that
once was good but now no more
but now HP is the best for your choice
and have greater varity of computers to printers
to other add-on devices which far exceeds what
other computer manufactures and add-ons devices
can do and produce
HP Products have alot different devices relating to computers
and you as the customer do the homework
about the product that you want to purchase
and ask youself what do I need and what I am using it for
and HP has many options for you
good points or advice..
Aslo if the questions or issues solved please check it
Thanks and you are welcome _____ Rick

Thank you, Dani! I appreciate your sending my frustrations on to the management team. I didn't know how to find someone I could voice them to. I appreciate the link to the website for technical help via live chat, as well.

Two recent experiences I have had with Dell machines.
1.Owner reinstalled from disks_no audio.Dell does provide an OS cd and App & Driver cd which many prefer over HP's all inclusive Recovery set.It does have it's advantages_if it works properly.In this case the OS disk reinstalled Windows correctly,but the App & Driver disk which is supposed to scan for hardware and offer correct drivers to install repeatedly mis-detected audio.After failing to install it suggested to reboot and try again,which I did 3 times before deciding something was not right.Went to Dell site,found another audio driver listed for the model..downloaded,installed...wow sound at last.
2.Owner's machine is out of warranty..motherboard dead.Shopped around for a compatible replacement,I thought.Replaced old board with new,started hooking everything up,all good until I tried to plug in the power button wires to board_2 inches too short to reach.The old board's pins were on the front edge,new boards pins were on the bottom corner.No extra wire what so ever! Talk about penny pinching.
Just my 2 cents.
