HP Chromebooks  - 
 
Since my chromebook came back from repair it uses an older stable channel and shows the splash screen appearently because it is in unsafe mode. Seems no problem to me?
But after an update it now shows that screen in some Slavic language, Russian or so. How can I change that to English or Dutch again?

Strangely, the hitting the space bar has no effect!

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?

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!
