I hate working on HP and Compaq computers. If you own one, please do all the techs of the world a favor, trash it and go get someone to build you one from scratch.

Thank you.

Yea but some people just can't leave that old 200mhz pentium 1 and go get another one.

Example. Friends mom asks me to work on her computer, she says something is funny with it. I check it out, theres *700* viruses on it, and over *1500* different spyware programs on here computer. I told her the best thing would be to reformat. But she doesn't have the system recovery discs, and i'm not about to work on a piece of crap HP with none of their drivers readily available.

Made the mistake of buying a compaq from a store once...it was back at the store within the hour with me leaving with my cash back in hand.


If it aint broke don't fix it, and if it wasn't worth using before it was broke don't fix it.

Well, to be fair, Thundra put's a great deal more effort into posting than I do. Clearly carefully edits her posts for spelling and grammatical correctness, as well as takes the time to go through and research prior threads, desperately trying to find contradictions even months apart, etc.

I can't quite imagine the pain it causes that I'm so much better at it without even paying attention the great majority of the time. Oh well, I shouldn't gloat I guess.

HAHAHAHAH!! I WIN!!

Oh, sorry.

yes and he must have actually booted it to count 'em- now loading MS Windows alone is a near Herculean effort for my 200Mhz machine, let alone 700 viruses and 1500 spyware programs? Holy cow! Ah, maybe he just booted to dos or moved the hard drive.

But I am curious, in order to get the final virus/spyware program(s) on there, there must have been a substantial number already and the person could still boot it up. Imagine how long that could take...

I'm fairly certain my watch is 200Mhz.

It took 4 minutes and 27 seconds for Windows to fully boot up, it also booted up with 10 explorer windows open already, because of the spyware and virii.

I was not happy.

Eventually got Norton and Adaware to install on there, which is how I found out how many virii and spyware there was. Before I hooked it up to the network though, I unplugged everything thing else from the router, just to make sure nothing got spread.

Run Windows the way Bob intended it. As an application on a Linux box. We do most of our file server environment this way. Virtual Windows servers on Linux, using something similar to VMWare. Interesting solution. Look in to it.

After years of dealing with HPs from my parents, I finally saved up and built my own, made just for me.

It feels good now, because it's not a big hunk of plastic. My mom's HP case is friggin' huge, but yet when you get inside it, you notice that the only reason it's huge is for all of the HP designed aesthetics around it, for instance... a 4 inch plastic barrier on the front, covering the floppy drive in plastic. Besides that, most of them come overpriced with very bad deals nowadays. I built my PC for about 1000$, and I got everything I wanted. GREAT video card, great audigy soundcard, Logitech speaker system (Z-5300s rock and they are affordable), a very nice black case, and a load of other stuff. Yet you go and see a price on a new pc at about 999.99$ and it consists of 2.4ghz (Mine is 2.8) 512 ram (1024mb here), and get this... ADVANCED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY.

My friends had the ADVANCED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY on the front when his parents bought it, and guess what... when I went down there and he had bought a brand new Geforce 4 Ti4600, turns out he did not even have an AGP slot on his motherboard, that's how cheap these Hewlett Packard people are.

Okay, just my two cents. I'll never buy a pc again, unless it's built at my hands. Not even an alienware, I don't have 2300 dollars for a PC that glows.
#39 May 04 2004 at 8:27 AM Rating: Decent

My friend said that if I saved up enough money he would help me out to build a really kickass computer, hopefully I'll be able to do it. Right now my computer at home has a virus so it doesnt work, I need to get my own so if I mess it up I wont get in trouble by my dad.

Ah computer maintenance. That was a great class in my High School area. Some of the things you find on computers that are used by hundreds of teenagers...

One of best examples I had was the time someone brought in this... "computer"

Its front drive panels where punched out and potatoe chip bags and bubblegum wrappers where shoved inside.

Defication material, or something closely resembling it appeared to streak down the front of the computer.

Close to half the keys on the keyboard where missing... with what appeared to be male bodily fluids spread accross the rest.

And the worse of all... was probably the vasoline smeared on the screen... and you know how that stuff is, you can't wipe that off for nothing. It was probably associated with the fluids on the keyboard, I don't know yet.

Keep in mind this is a computer that was used in open areas in the middle of a classroom.

HPs and Compaq (aren't they the same company now?) are really built for the corporate market, not the home one. They have non-standard parts, are expensive, and are a pain in the **** to work on. However, they can much more easily survive being stacked into a moving truck and manhandled and still come out on the other end working. If you look inside the cases, all those extra fixtures that are a pain in the **** to deal with serve to hold all the cards in place and absorb shock to the box itself.

All the other stuff (like needing proprietary boot floppies to make bios changes and such) are things that are needed/wanted in the corporate world. You don't want joe average user rebooting his machine and accidentally turning it into a toaster because he started randomly hitting buttons. The non-standard bits and custom fittings help to keep down parts theft (if it wont fit in your computer at home, you probably wont steal it).

There is about zero reason or need for a home user to want a system like that. However, for purely cost savings reasons, they sell them to the home market. Once they've designed all those custom bits and tooled up their factories to make them, why on earth change them for the home user? Don't buy them. Heck. I avoid buying any computer with a name brand on the front. You're usually just asking for trouble...
