Summary: Slowest computer I have ever had the misfortune of operating. While turning it on to write this review, I decided to count how long it took. The result was 21 minutes of a black screen. At 22 minutes, a toolbar popped up asking me about projector options. I do not even own a projector. Then, at about 26 minutes, it loaded my desktop. I clicked on Google Chrome to write this review.
Summary: My grandfather loaned me his Compaq QC62-410US to repair. His main complaint was odd behavior and that it ran too slow. If HP is the garbage in the can outside your house, Compaq is the stuff in a dumpster that hasn't been emptied in a month and is full of used diapers after a dysentery outbreak. While in 2010 having only 2GB of RAM is understandable shipping even a bottom-end computer a single-core processor is a crime.
Compaq Presario CQ62-231NR Laptop - The worst laptop
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I purchased this compaq Presario laptop in july from staples when it was on sale for $250. I though for the price the specifications were good. Hoping to use it for home - just for accessing internet and doing some small chores at home, I bought it. Initially it was good. It worked fine for 2months. One fine day it stopped working. When I tried to boot, it failed. I called the support of HP. The customer support representative was good.
Summary: The clickers are absolutely terrible. It's one long bar for both the right and left clicks so basically you have to press EXTRA hard to get anything...also, my laptop lasted less than a year before the fan started malfunctioning...its days are numbered now...
Summary: This item was advertized as New. Well when I received it I could not get it to log on to my wireless system . I called Compaq , they would NOT help me with out charging me $ for the help , as I it was told it was over 160 days OUT OF WARRANTY , ( so 1 year and 160 plus days !!! *I would not call that new at all ).
Summary: I bought one of these 5 months ago when my old Toshiba blue screened.I got an HP because my Dad had one (different model) that ran for years without any problems.Now I wish I had gotten something (anything) else.When it was 6 weeks old one of the keys popped out of the keyboard.I eventually got it to go back in after fooling with it for a week.This thing puts out error messages I have never seen before.The cursor will suddenly vanish leaving me with no option but to turn...
