    So my brother got an HP, it sucked ass, kept restarting, eventually froze up when it got to the welcome screen, kept doing that even after i reformatted it twice, so we exchanged it, now its starting to do it again, just the restarting. Every once and again it will do it, but now it continually becomes more and more. From clicking on a link, to sending an im, WTF!!!!!!!!!!! it just restarts there is no reason for it. I have just thought that maybe there is a screw up somewhere with the java or active x, i have no idea where, but it might have something to do with it. Can anyone fill me in

    I have owned an HP desktop and HP Netserver and have had had nothing but good luck with them.

    When I put Linux on them they both have had uptimes of >100 days. :o

    My company used HP as a sole supplier of our machines for years. From mainframe down to all printers. UNTIL the first set of PC's we received after the integration of Compaq was complete that all 20 have failed. We are in the process of filtering out all 600 PC's half a dozen servers and even the mainframes. Everything we have received since the Compaq takeover has been junk.

    But in your case I bet if you have the computer running long enough to be on the internet its not a computer problem but rather a software/user problem.

    I remember Intel was giving out free computers to everyone when the P4 first came out - we were all excited until we found out they were HPs. Those things do suck.
