Few years ago I bought an HP laptop. The laptop worked for 18 months then died. After a little research I realized that the particular combination of mother board and video card in this laptop had issues. The problem was so wide spread that HP released a recall/extended warranty for this problem for all models EXCEPT mine
From that point on, I will not buy any HP hardware. I'm done with them.
Long story short, I have a perfectly good laptop with blown mother board.
Has anyone gutted their laptop and used screen and keyboard for the pi?
Stay in school, don't do drugs and don't buy HP laptops
