The vendor estimates that the new system will be able to serve customers in 132 countries in 31 different languages.
HP plans to recruit 1,000 service agents for new call centres in Alabama, Missouri and Oregon.
The company also plans to rebuild the computer systems it uses for tech support to handle the expansion of HP's Instant Care programme.
Instant Care allows support staff to remotely access users' PCs to troubleshoot and perform repairs. The system will also allow staff to email users with support information and articles.
Tara Bunch, vice president of consumer customer operations at HP, said: " This is the first of many improvements from HP that you will hear of in the coming months."
