Bad configuration of Ibuypower computer

by Geek101 / October 5, 2004 5:27 AM PDT

Have a year and half computer from above company. Just found out that my two hard drives from Maxtor had different registration dates. Out of warrantee on two different months. New or used? Then to put things at a more Pi---Off state, found that the system is operating at 2.1mhz and not at the cpu capability. Tried to up the speed and nothing but blue screens. Now I know why they set the speed at 2.1. Bad business but is there anything I can do to speed up the system.
By the way, "dontbuypower"!

about the computer. How can anyone help you.

How about what CPU, what memory, what mobo, what Op Sys for later, If it is an AMD CPU, what do you think that it's speed should be?? AMD is tricky.

What warranty on the system???

"Yeah man, the first computer I got from ibuypower was 4 MONTHS LATE!!!and it didn't power up properly,most of the function weren't functioning.I sent it back and another few months later alongwith much rude customer service I got a new computer that worked great.....for 7 months then died, I sent it back and they said warranty was void because the suspected I tried to open it myself(why would anyone do this with a computer on warranty?)after that they basically wouldn't do anything to help.Stay clear of thiscompany unless you have money tothrow away and are into S&M because they treat you like a slave.
