♥ HP CQ40 Series Laptop Review

Hi Guys it has been a while since we posted here. Well sadly my new post now is a bad one. We bought our laptop last August 5 2009 at Accent Micro Limketkai Mall, Cagayan De Oro City. Well by the good looks of the laptop and its specs, you will not have any other thoughts but rather buy the laptop that is for only P25,500 pesos.

here is the specs of the laptop:

Dimensions (LxWxH): 33.4cm x 23.7cm x 3.3cm/4.0cm

Others: VGA Webcam & Integrated Microphone
Free: HP Carrying Case

Preliminary Thoughts: buying it the first time and using it is really the best experience in laptop gaming, not to mention that this laptop is really designed for gaming.

The truth revealed:

Well sad to say, after 4 months of using this laptop, I first encountered that the battery seems not to charge well and that the life of the battery decreases even though we carefully followed the manual on how to take care of the laptop. Well thats the first but after we reported the battery for warranty replacement we need to wait for about 2 weeks for the replacement battery to arrive. While waiting for the battery, another serious error occurred. This time the LCD of the laptop Flickers intermittently. I googled for some answers and I was shocked to see a lot of complains about this product as well as the CQ40 SERIES laptops. Most of the complains are the battery life and the LCD quality.

Not to mention that the forum of HP Philippines itself does not provide any solution except that the buyer is advised to have his laptop's LCD be replaced. The question is, for how long will the owner of the laptop wait until his replacement LCD is already available?

How come HP/COMPAQ did not know about this thing? Does HP has a quality assurance team to check on this?

Not to mention that the LAPTOP's serial number begins with CN == means that laptop was manufactured in CHINA. If you will avail of the HP chat online with their techsupport, the moment you gave them the serial number of your laptop, they will say that your laptop is not supported by their chat support, how come?

anyway just see for your self guys..

here is the video of my laptop


right now HP is scheduling me for a full part warranty replacement

♥ The Couple

    Rai Abary
    Quing Perpetua


    He was looking for God’s gift.
    She was waiting for God’s will.
    Both believe that true love waits.
    Both hoped.

    When boy meets girl, friendship started then. They shared thoughts, stories, and even problems they face everyday. The tiny bond of friendship blossoms deeper and deeper as each day passed by. He confided to her, she leaned on him. Both shared the same passion and that is to serve God and to walk intimately with God. He prayed for her. She prayed for him. An ordinary friend turned into more special - prayer partner.

    More talks, more laughs, more cries, more songs, more poems, more thoughts, more prayers, more time have been spent, that love began to grow and bind them.

    May 17, 2007, God, in His own perfect way and time, allowed us to enjoy the gift of love.

    Until now, God never fails to guide us. Like any ordinary relationship, we fight - get jealous, get mad, misunderstand and even hurt each other. As an individual, we need to adjust, take risks and sacrifices. "It is painful". Yet, true love is still worth it all. We know that everyday, we face challenges, and we need to fight, defend and protect the love that we have. It may tear us, cost our life, yet we do not fear because GOD is the center of our faith.
    God is our strong foundation, our beginning and our end.

    When God made Rai, He was thinking of Quing.
