*REBUTTAL Individual responds: HP IDIOTS
*Consumer Comment: USB
The First female Tech Support person actually managed to erase all my drives and when she realized what she had done, she hung on me. My computer was only 2 weeks old at that time. I called corporate and they sent me back to the store to get a new computer. The 2nd time was in November, 2011. I called Tech Support because my laptop was acting up. But I could use it. Just a little frustrating. The tech support guy said I needed a new USB Flash Drive to re-install my Operating System which cost $43.42. I glady ordered it, not realizing it was scam to get me to order a new computer. When it arrived, I installed it and when the installation ended, I got messages saying my computer could not be restarted. That was the death of my computer. I called Tech Support again, and the man I spoke to wanted me to buy a new computer!! I finally called and got a case manager who sent me out another USB drive but my computer woud not restart at the end. When I called the case manager to let him know it did not work, he basically said if I want to send it in to be fixed I could for $160+++, or we are done! NEVERMIND THEIR USB DRIVE KILLED MY COMPUTER.....I ACTUALLY PAID $43.42 FOR THE ABUSE. The right thing for them to do is either replace my computer or fix it at no charge. Really a SCAM COMPANY.
