Default HP Finds Problems with Memory Modules, Recalls Laptops

HP, one of the world’s largest maker of digital equipment and personal computers, said it might have to repair or recall up to 900 thousand of notebook computers as a result of a flaw found in third-party memory modules used in the company’s mobile PCs.

During what HP calls routine testing of HP- and Compaq-branded notebook PCs, the company identified a design flaw in certain notebook memory modules used across the industry that could potentially cause users to experience serious problems with their notebooks. The memory modules in question are not manufactured by HP and were supplied by third parties.

More info

Only those laptops sold between March 2002 and July 2003 are being recalled.

Affected customers have until the end of this year to submit an application to HP for a new memory module.
