For sale HP DV9657EM 2.2ghz dual-core, 2GB Ram, 320GB Hard-drive, 128 graphics, less than 18 months old.
It has suffered some noticable external and possible internal damage. Suitable for repair or use of spare parts.
It is currently has Windows 7 Release Candidate installed but runs out in June.
This is a notebook and is designed for desktop use, on a flat surface for maximum efficiency and stability.
I'm not sure if there is internal damage. I have checked the RAM and processor which I coulkd reach but I feel it needs to be seen by a more advanced user. It was in perfect working order a few weeks ago and was usable despite the screen being partially obscured, but now the screen displays white when you turn it on (possibly just the screen has completely broken now, or it could be the graphics card which is cheap to replace about £25). Replacing the screen may restore it to perfect working order but as of now, it is not possible to boot into windows as the screen is white.
Most noticably, it has damaged pixels on the screen mainly on the right side, the screen still viewable but you will probably want to replace. You can purchase one from as little as £40 on ebay and have it fitted by a professional for a small fee or, if knowledgable in the area, fit it yourself.
The charger will also need replacing as the connection is very loose, it works but can be fiddly. They normally retail at £80 but you can find a replacement on ebay for £17.00.
There is a slight dent in the speaker as pictured, but does not affect the quality as it's only in the casing. There's also a burn mark next to the finger pad but, again, this does not affect the device.
The notebook also has some surface scratches from general wear and tear and the corners have a little damage and the paint has rubbed off them. Again, just general wear and tear and does not affect the notebook efficiency.
Please ask me if you require any more information or have any questions.
