I have - hope sometime not so long ago, to say: "I had" - an hp
pavillion zv5290ea.

Some time - 8 months ( could you beleive it? ) - my dvd drive has gone

I've done a million of calls to hp support center and they didn't
change my drive neither wanted to see it.

I also have a hp printer, that does not work well, it always has
printing problems.

A friend of mine told me that hp is going to be splited again into hp
and compaq. Could this be true?
