My Chromebook (HP14) starts up as FALCO TEST 0289 after returning from repair. This type is not mentioned in chrome recovery.

It does not look good. There are several problems loading sites (gmail reports "This chrome version is no longer supported" !!, and the build is of 2014 and "up-to-date". Many apps such as chrome recovery are "not compatable". Can you believe this??? a chromebook.

I consider to use the usb I made before to reinstall the OS as Falco c31-43A-L57, is this smart?

It feels like I am back in Windows in the nineties, what a hassle! My 11" HP came bacj a while ago from repair with a similar ugly startscreen. Fortunately, that is all and everything is functioning as expected.

My first action would be to contact whoever "repaired" it and tell them you need to have the repair repaired.

Another option is a powerwash. That's rather drastic, but as the Chromebook already needed repair (and I hope you backed up any downloaded files before sending it for repair), this is one time I wouldn't hesitate to do it.

One last thing: next time your computer needs fixing, send it somewhere else.

This is capucinno my way. Cold milk in the magic bullet: spin a minute. Make the coffee's lungo in the Nespresso. Open the Bullet-cup and microwave until it wants to overflow. Knock softly to raise the foam, devide and spoon the foam on top. Presto!

Mooie 2e dag Summer school van University Campus Friesland.
De straat op; "wat is het mooiste en wat het lelijkste plekje in LW voor u?"
Lelijk bleek de moeilijkste of zelfs onmogelijk om aan te wijzen!

HP Chromebooks  - 
 
A few days ago my HP14 came back from official repai, new motherboard and disk. I am not happy.

It starts ugly as in pic with black lines and in not verified mode. It beeps when spacebar is pressed, but no changing to verified.
The installed version is of 2014 and I cannot update somehow?
The app menu is the old square type, and many apps (restore chromebook for example) are "not supported".
In gmail, a line pops up that the "this version of chrome" is not supported.

This is not how a clean and smooth chromebook should look. Should I resend it, or am I overlooking a quick user-install thing here?

Fantastic historic footage.
With little tools, but great skill, technique and the right workflow/sequence a lot can be done!

Technical Issues  - 
 
Just received my HP11 back from service; the wifi failed, and they replaced the motherboard. I have a question.
Now it starts with an ugly screen showing (briefly) a small black box with commandlines in the left top, on a white screen showing a OS verification notice that verification is off. To turn it on press spacebar. Then chrome spash screen opens and the chromebook starts normally. This looks ugly, and it does not feel safe.

I am afraid to press spacebar as the help says I will then need to reinstall or recover. My HP14 recently died from that and it is now a useless thing which still awaits a solution.

Never, I thought to experience the uncertain feelings of the Windowsera again. But here I am, out of love with both of these chromebooks.

Thanks for looking into this!
This is how the chromebook was returned to me by official HP service after changing the motherboard.
One test startup away from doing a decent job appearently.

Mooie dag om een dagje in de gevangenis te gaan zitten!
Gelukkig genoeg gelegenheid om ook even te ontsnappen en te luchten op de binnenplaats.
Bedankt University Campus Friesland voor drie inspirerende dagen #UCF15 Summer School.
