I just wonder the quality sense of the company and it's approach to the most valuable customers. In my opinion the loss of the company have to pay a heavy price for their strategy and the loss of the individual customer will be nothing at the end and I hope the company will take these facts if they wish to survive this competitive business.
I appreciate if I get an opportunity to hear further from you.

This is very true, this particular model from HP has serious problem very now and then. Even after so many complaints are coming, company is still selling those version in market. So customer's pocket is getting affected but in the end Company will get a kick for this! Enough of hell of services are being done and now we as customer needs to raise voice and make them to listen our problems.

I'm struggling with my Presario V3000 for months. First..very hard to start working, sometimes it is working sometimes not. Now I have my laptop totally dead. As far I can see there is not even boot, so must be a motherboard’s problem. How long I have my laptopn?...barely one year…Is no serious to lie the people this way….Presario V3000 is a very bad product.

I am using laptops for the past 7 years, prior to this they were all thinkpads from IBM never had an issue so did not go for the extended warranty for my Compaq Pressario V3029 AU. Never anticipated product quality like this from HP.
For the past two years I am using V3000 notebook. Last week it had gone completely blank, the display was not there. The service guy told me that the motherboard is dead, and I have to buy a new one for 16k. I have found out all over the net this problem is very common for the V3000 series Compaq pressario notebooks. Make substandard products, hire Shah Rukh Khan or any superstar to promote, and voila you have idiots like me buying it. Just to realize after two years that your 43k notebook is dead, spend another 16k just to revive it. Keep on doing the same thing HP, and you will have great market share in the future.
My suggestion to prospective buyers, dont waste your money on HP & Compaq products, go do some research on the net and buy something that is stable, reliable and from a company with right business mindset not from someone who wants to sell a substandard product just to earn quick bucks in after sales & services.

I have a Compaq V3228AU with the same complaint.
I have replaced the motherboard 3 times still the complaint is not over.
They have identified it is a manufacturing defect due to defective NVIDIA chip.
They extended the warranty by one year and offer a "HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement" free repair for 1 more year for all the models listed in the HP-Compaq website in this address http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01296338&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=in&lang=en&product=3360280
But even if you go for the repair your problem will not get solved, I replaced my motherboard 3 times and every time it will only work for a few days and the display will go again.
This is because they replace the motherboard again with a defective motherboard containing the defective NVIDIA chip.
This warranty extension is trap so that no body goes to any court against them.
So please spread this message how they are cheating the customers go to the consumer court ask for the replacement of this product, never settle for repair as they will cheat us.
The company is cheating us, we should all get replacement of this product.

This laptop's thermal design is also very bad
646 days ago by Shaheen [send email]
The AMD processor has nothing to with it. The main processor is fine. The geforce gpu is causing the heat and the poor thermal design of the laptop do not push out the heat well.
If you use the main processor in full throttle, its not going to heat up that much. Rather if you use geforce GPU(run some graphic intensive application) the laptop will heat up to around 100 degree celcius

I agree. I had invested Rs. 35K, I am terribly sorry for that. I had got repaired my notebook 5 times in THE VERY first three months. It is now giving same problem again. These laptop/notebooks must have recalled and replaced in the very frst place.

I wish to inform you that a laptop Model No. V3000 wide s.no.: 2CE7062DN1 and Product No: RQ103PA#APJ was purchased by me before 2 years. During the 11th month from the date of purchase (i.e. during Warranty Period) the display was not coming to my laptop and i submitted that to your Surat service center. After around 10 days, i received it in working condition and i was told that this is general problem with this particular model and they have replaced the motherboard.
Again after the 8 months of that replacement, same problem occured. As the warranty period was over, i have to paid for the same problem and again 10 days of duration was taken.
I am regret to inform you that the same probloem is occured once again . This has happedn third time . In the period of hardly 2 years, i am facing same problem third time.
I buy this product considering the name and fame of your company. I am sorry to say that the kind of product you have supplied me is creating same problem again and again. I talked with your service department at banglore in the same regard. I am really sorry to say that this is a kind of cheting by providing low quality product.
