It is to inform you that people here are selling HP laptops at very low price saying that they are new but they are not new they repaired and old laptops which are altered and repaired with new bodies.
The prices will be like

These adds are from the same persons
They will tell you stories about it being directly from HP and stuff and have international warranty.
If your laptop do not have a hp warranty seal under it and do not have a warranty card then there is no warranty I asked directly from HP.
Every HP product sold is has been registred on HP with product no and serial no.
If the specification do not match with the specifiction of HP site then it is altered and repiared.
If you will claim the warranty of these latops they will ask of shipment charges and then may be will repair it locally.
My story is I bought touch screen DV6-4011tx from Muhammad Roshaan Ph.no 03314093959 at hafeezcenter.pk
Of all model written on its body was dv6 4012tx and when you enter the product no on hp site the model correspond to dv6-4011tx. It clearly shows that the motherboard has been changed.
When it was told to Roshan he did not entertained this claim and said it is not possible it took me two hours and he still claims hp made it and it is ok.
I showed they laptop to a shop and he showed me that screws colors have changed hence it is has been opened.
No warranty claim was entertained by him no matter what I said IT also had a factory fault which I have given him the link and he said it has already been repaired there is no such fault now but the laptop manufacture date was before the fault was discovered still he kept saying it is ok.
Method to check
Note the full model no under the battery of your laptop
start laptop press f1 note serial no. and product no.
Go to hp site find the place to enter it.
product no correspond to model and serial no identify your specific laptop
If the model on the site do not match with the model under the battery then its altered and motherboard has been changed
You will be lucky to find the serial no. on the site if i enter my serial no hp do not detect anything and hp told me if your serial no is not on the site your laptop has not been registered for sale.
Did not have time to proof read it sorry for any mistakes
Please move it to sales forum if possible
