bye bye HP DV2500

January 10, 2010

Well, it has finally bought the farm!

This HP piece of *%$£ now only lasts half an hour without the screen imploding.

Shame as it is a nice spec 160Gb disk, intel duo 2Ghz, wifi and looks the part. But that is it with HP – everything ‘looks’ the part. so beware (I stick to their printers from now on)

However if HP want to improve their image by replacing it (one month out of warranty when it went ka-blooey) feel free to get in touch!

I might try running freenas on it as a backup server, as I won’t need to touch the keys or screen, but it seems such a waste!!


8 screens of death!

so far so good. I only get the ‘8 screens of death’ when it shuts down and is about to power off! I have set conky up to monitor temps and everything seems to hover at the 50 ish mark.
