Nothing but trouble
, March 11, 2014
This review is from: HP Pavilion 11-e115nr Touchsmart 11.6" Touch Screen AMD Elite Quad-Core A6-1450 / 4GB DDR3 / 320GB HD / Webcam & Microphone / Windows 8.1 / Energy Star (Personal Computers)
Mine came with a bad video driver that caused the laptop to crash. Screen would freeze and go dark while the power stayed on. If I could get it into safe mode (about one in every five or six boots) it wouldn't crash. Uninstalling the bad AMD video driver in favor of the generic Windows driver would also work for a time, but then AMD software would reinstall the crap driver and laptop would crash again. At the time I'm writing this there is no updated AMD video driver that might fix the problem. Was never able to make recovery disks due to crashes, I now have a half dozen DVD coasters. Tried to make recovery disks in safe mode but HP Recovery Manager said my battery wasn't installed. When I contacted HP support the website said my warranty had expired. I ordered the laptop less than two weeks ago! Needless to say it's going back. There's a reason why this quad-core laptop is being sold so cheap. I like the look and feel of the HP Pavilion line and may spend the extra $50 to get the next model up. I'd recommend you steer clear of this one though.
