Reminder - Mehri & Skalet, PLLC Announces HP Pavilion Settlement: Consumers to Receive Benefits if Claims Filed by May 1, 2006

WASHINGTON, DC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 --The Washington, DC law firm Mehri & Skalet, PLLC announces that on March 16, 2006, U.S. District Court Judge John Corbett O'Meara entered an order granting final approval to a nationwide settlement reached in one of the three cases filed against Hewlett-Packard Company on behalf of consumers who purchased certain models of HP Pavilion desktop computers. The settlement provides cash payments, reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses and/or discount certificates to thousands of consumers who experienced recurring "hanging, freezing or locking" problems with their computers.

The class action lawsuits, pending in federal court in Michigan and in state courts in California and Illinois, allege that certain models of the HP Pavilion desktop computers contain a defective motherboard that causes the computers to frequently stop working or "hang, freeze, or lock" while performing basic functions.

Consumers who purchased an HP Pavilion model 8655c, 8660c, 8750c, xl756, or xl759 may be entitled to a cash payment of $75.00 and/or a $50.00 discount certificate. Consumers who purchased an HP Pavilion model 8754c or 8755c may be entitled to a cash payment of $40.00 and/or a $50.00 discount certificate. In addition, consumers who purchased any of these models may also be eligible for up to $750.00 in reimbursement of money spent to repair recurring "hanging, freezing or locking" problems with their computers.

The deadline for consumers to file claims in the settlement is May 1, 2006. For more information about the settlement, or to receive a claim form, please visit www.hppavilionsettlement.com or call 1-877-874-7559.
