    HP Pavilion Laptop - Video Card died

    Hello Last Ditch effort

    I own an HP Pavillion Laptop, in pristine condition (3 years Old)
    I used!! it for Radio broadcasting, as the warrant expiry became due the Video card Died, It was repaired FOC. 3months 1 week later it died.

    On contacting Repair agent, NO warranty on repaired Componnents over 3 months, the repairer suggested on 1st repair to instal windows 7 at an agreed Price. I DID....
    Now I have a Dead Computer they wont Honor the repair And HP dont want to Know its out of Warranty
    I am told it would cost up to $700AU to repair .
    Does anyone have Ideas..

    Jacek, Wow many thanks for reply, I really apreciate hearing from you. I did NOT send to Local Tech it went to Melbourne Authorised Repair Agent. They Said Video Card as I had NO opening Screen on Startup at all. The same happened 14 weeks again after Repair.
    I had only just sent the folowing to HP (AGAIN) perhaps this will assist your evaluation._______________________

    Without Prejudice

    Well 2 weeks, I didnt expect a Reply to my last re this request and I am not dissapointed...

    No But thoroughly disgusted with the Name HP

    I Thoroughly enjoyed my HP Pavillion and did reccomend HP to quite a lot in what I used it for.

    It would seem decency of a reply is on the back burner...

    I used it for Broadcasting Live Radio Programmes World Wide of Country Music Programmes, that gives me a huge ammount of contacts. (World Wide) personally and thru my Website and internet and FM Stations to which I broadcast.

    However July 2010 just before Warranty ran out The Video card died.

    I sent it as requested to Melbourne spending over $3,700 on a new Qosmio Toshiba X500 (Urgently needed)

    Whilst away the Tech recommended I buy a New Windows 7 at a Set entertaining Price, a mine was Vista, I did

    Computer back, the video card lasted 14 weeks just over what I found out to my disgust the 3 months warranty on repairs... and having spent $'s on Windows 7 Now no use to me

    That said I contacted HP and was told verbatim the same and HP could assist no further.

    As a Pensioner and doing what I do Voluntary, I am totally disgusted, my pavilion is still in Pristine condition and NOW seemingly useless, costing more to buy Windows 7 when I could have paid for local repair friends Cheaper.


    Would anyone from HP like to offer a reasonable reply of sorts perhaps with some sort of


    The Note on left side of your Request is really quite insulting considering I don't now have a working Pavilion
