Guest: Hello all! I am hoping for some support and help... I just turned in my HP Laptop dv2740se for repair, it's still under the protection plan/store warranty from Fry's. Just to give a bit of history, my laptop was my first big purchase as an adult (That and my car) and it's like my baby. (I named it Lola, yes I know I am way crazy). My laptop has a heat sink fan that's dead, a DVD writer/light scribe that's dead, some dead/dying pixels on the display and the power jack is broken. (To the point where I have to hold the cord at an angle to get a charge.) I really didn't want to turn it in due to the fact that I would be without a computer for X amount of time and I have followed this board and I know some of the complaints of screw ups. Plus, it was emotional for me to just hand it over, knowing I may not get my laptop back or working if some peoples' stories are true. I guess what I really want to know is (to our experts): Would I actually get a replacement for my laptop? If they can fix the problems, will they wipe my hard drive? And Yes, I know it will take time to order parts but how long should it take? 3 weeks? 5 weeks? 4 months? (If the stories are true!) This waiting is killing me and I am really doubting my decision to turn it in. Like maybe I should have just had my computer limp along until I could purchase a new one in the fall. In advance thank you to anyone who can give me some advice!
Guest: "milling a chunk of aluminum to create an extended heatsink for the processor" (2) No. You're not. You would like to think so, but you aren't going to make a heatsink. You don't have the knowledge.
Guest: "just decided to download a copy, and tell my ISP I had no choice but to DL Vista" (3) You don't know much about computers. I've seen your type. ou know just enough to use big words and get yourself in trouble. Why would you inform your ISP of your activities? Retarded.
Guest: "after I told him they lost over $8,000 of business from us in the next year" (4) I've heard that one often. Guess what: It isn't true, and employees don't give a shit.
Guest: "they couldn't verify the serial number on the laptop (the serial number was worn off the sticker)" "when I found a way for them to get the serial number off the motherboard. First, I found a VBS" (5) Seriously? You wanted to bring in a fucking VBS script? If you brought that in to me, I would kick your ass out.
Guest: "then found Belarc" (6) Why didn't you just go into the BIOS and get the serial number? Like any half-intelligent person would?
Guest: "they are going to be royally screwed if I ever have to go into the store and fight with them." (7) Adults don't actually talk like that. I would put your age 16-21.
Guest 30532: Does Remedy glitch sometimes? I put "Repaired by" myself, and it showed up as another Tech! This could lead to disasters. Also, when customers come up asking how to do a restore, do you tell them which F8/F11, etc key it is? I'm trying to find a way to save the sale but I don't like lying or doing shady shit while on the counter. Ideas?
Guest 53073: home office just took the red carpet computer off the store's internet line and made it only accessible through our router. why?
