I have been facing the same problem with my Presario 3225AU laptop. I have got replaced my motherboard last week and facing the same problem again.
This is disgusting. And this will 100% get repeated frequently I'm for sure. I agree that HP has extended this warranty for a 1 year. But what after a year? Chargeable?
What's our fault that we have purchased a Compaq laptop?
Guys, I am going to the Consumer Protection Department with all the blogs and the hp published articles on their sites. We have spent considerable amount on this and we can't tolerate such a frequent problem. Top of the problem such a frustration that it sometimes spoils my whole day.
I know, it will result into 'NOTHING' but if we raise our concern together we might get some way out and find a permanent solution.
Please revert back on Pritesh_z@yahoo.com if you are from India & want to join me fight this battle. We should get some justice. Let's see how much 'Jaago Graahak Jaago' plays the role.
Regards (with extreme frustration)
