Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Warranty on pc

\015 I purchased a pc on EBay last November from a company in Warrington, a few days ago it failed to work and would not boot up, I rang the company and they told me to send it back which was going to cost about \302\24310 and as I am a 76 year old pensioner that is quite a bit of money. My grandson called and he said it could be just a wire come loose and took the back off to have a look, it wasn't a wire, the hard drive which had a three year warranty on it had failed so we packed it up got a courier to pick it up and they delivered it last Friday, never heard a word so phoned them yesterday and after a long search found it and I rang later and they told me that the seal on the case had been broken so they would put a new drive in but I would have to pay for it, can you tell me if this is right please as I canot afford that kind of money\015

Answers :

To whom it may concern,

Unfortunately you have tampered with the unit which has damaged the "tamper proof" seal. If these seals are broken all warranties are void and this is standard practice. If the seal was still intact then they would have to replace the failed component. The seals are used for people who try to update and change internal components and damage the machines. This protects the companies when unqualified personnel decide to tinker and then make a claim when they do damage. Unfortunately this also means that you also fall into this category and the company is no longer liable as the seal has been broken and they consider this to void the warranty for obvious reasons. Sorry I cannot offer any further assistance.

I received a X2gen monitor , model MG19E, from Best Buy warranty service. This monitor was replacement for a previous monitor that went out. I only had the X2gen monitor for just a few months and now it seems to be not working. I called Best Buy and explained the problem. I was told I had to go to the manufacture. I believe this monitor should still be under warranty. Hope you can help me. Thanks, TIM

It depends. When a company replaces a component that is in warranty with another component, the only warranty that transfers is the remainder of the warranty on the original product. So if I had a monitor with a three year warranty, and it stopped ... PC Desktops

My dad's Studio 17 has horrible wavy lines all over the screen (really fuzzy). It has been like this since he first got the laptop, but he thought it was interference caused by his numerous ham radio antennas. He recently brought it to my house and it does the same thing so it is not interference. I called Dell (when the warranty was still in effect) and all I got was ''sorry the screen is not covered under the warranty - do you want to buy an upgraded warranty?
