My compaq laptop sucks a$$

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Ben Fong-Torres, Jun 12, 2003.

  1. So I bought a compaq 731US from Best Buy mainly because my friend worked there so I got a discount. ...And it sucks bad. It hangs all the time, it will hang/freeze during the screensaver with nothing but Anti-virus software running. I restored many times, it never worked, so now its getting fixed supposedly because I bought the three year plan with it. What I'm wondering is if they fix it somehow or tell me they fixed it, I think its an overheating problem, is there someway that I could sabotage it basically so that I can get a new laptop/gift card?

    Try to get your money back. All Compaqs belong in the trash. If you can get a refund, I recommend a Dell or a Sony. Good luck.

    If you can't get a refund, then demand a replacement. You shouldn't have to stick with a broken one.

    well, good luck getting a new one
    they are pretty strict with the lemon policy there with laptops I think. But I dunno, check it out, see what they'll do when you get it back. Mine's fine (ihave the 1700) altho it is a bit outdated, but I've reformatted and added more RAM and it runs like a champ.
     
  5. I know Compaqs can have problems with memory leaking...does anyone here run a memory management program on their compaq? Any success?

    The operating system and applications you use are responsible for memory leaks, not the hardware you use.

    I just got my bro a Compaq laptop w/ 512MB, 60GB drive, 15" screen, integrated wireless, firewire, etc, etc for $1100 during Fry's crazy sale last week. It's pretty damn sweet for the money.
