Dell :: OT: Is Extended Warranty Worth It For Desktops?

Aug 13, 2009

I know warranty is absolutely vital for notebooks, but is a large manufacturers warranty necessary for a desktop?

Usually the individual parts have their own warranty and you can replace defective and broken parts by yourself with the know-how (unless its a huge issue like a surge, etc) .....

Dell :: Extended Warranty Worth It? (3 Years Extend To 5)

May 3, 2010

I have 6 days to decide whether to extend the warranty on my Inspiron 9400. The laptop cost me 1200 ($1800) when I bought it. The extention will cost me me 109 / $166.

This will take my warranty from 3 to 5 years NBD onsite response. Anyone think this is a good idea? I am happy with the performance of my laptop.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Worth Getting Now?

Mar 8, 2009

A Dell Studio 1737 OR the Dell Studio XPS 1640? The Studio 1737 has been out longer for any problems to be fixed and whatnot and comes at a lower price. The Studio XPS 1640 has been out for just a couple of months and there are dozens of reports of BSOD's, heating issues, etc...

I would like to get the Studio XPS 1640, but generally I wait about 4-6 months after the product has been released before buying. There are talks about a built-in TV Tuner, but I haven't seen that on the Dell website. People are also saying Dell is going to upgrade the video card .....

Dell :: What Warranty For Studio 16 XPS

Mar 10, 2010

my question is, what's the best value with these warranties? I know I should probably be protected, but should I assume that after 1 year I'd be in the clear anyway? Also, I think the 1645 doesn't come with 2 year warranties (for some reason) so those would be out of the question.

Dell :: Studio 15 Warranty

Jun 23, 2009

I'm going off to university for the next 3 years and I'm probably going to get the studio 15.

It only comes with a 1 year warranty and I was wondering if it's reliable enough to stick with that or if I should get an extended warranty on it.

I'm pretty tight for money right now, so I'd like to save the money.

Dell :: Studio Laptop Warranty

Feb 25, 2010

Does anyone know off hand if opening up my laptop would affect my warranty? I am taking a ComTIA A+ course, and I wanted to open the case to my Dell Laptop in class, but my instructor wasn't sure if I should because he said the warranty may not be any good if I open it.

Dell :: Warranty Clarification On Studio XPS 13 And 16

Apr 15, 2009

This could well be more conniving bull but a Dell Sales rep told me that the standard 1 year warranty is collect and return??? I have never heard of it to be "collect and return" as far as I know it's always been on site repair or replace..

Dell :: Studio 1555 Warranty

May 14, 2009

I have a Dell Studio 1555.

I will be performing the following hardware upgrades in the system:

1. HDD 320 GB 5400 rpm -> HDD 320 GB 7200 rpm

2. Intel Wifi 5100 card -> Intel Wifi 5300 card

Now my question is since I will be doing these upgrades myself, will doing this void my warranty in any way. I have 1 Yr Ltd Hardware Warranty, InHome Service after Remote Diagnosis.

Also, if tomorrow I have 2 send the lappy 2 the Dell Service Centre for any reason and they find out that I have upgraded the machine, then will it have any effect on my warranty?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Warranty

Mar 28, 2009

I am having MAJOR issues with my Studio 1535 and I could use some input!

About two months ago, the fan kicked on at HIGH speed as soon as I pressed the power button to boot up. It continued to run on HIGH indefinitely, unless I lifted one of the rear corners a bit off the desk. Then the fan would stop instantly until I lowered the edge back down to the desk surface.

I've spoken with a few other 1535 owners who've had the same issue. Motherboard flex seems to be the culprit and it (the system/mother board) needs to be replaced.

I sent it in for warranty repair the first time with a detailed explanation of the problem. I also detailed a problem I was having with the keyboard that needed to be fixed. They replaced the keyboard and didn't address the fan issue. Immediately out of the box, I powered it up and the fan instantly kicked on HIGH, too.

I sent it back a second time with a detailed explanation again (after a long chat with tech support). They replaced the fan itself. I got it back yesterday and as soon as I hit power, the fan kicked in at HIGH speed. Making matters WORSE, the system gave me an error during the boot sequence that it didn't recognize and couldn't charge the battery! It allowed me to ESC out of the error and booted to my desktop. That's when I realized the Touchpad wouldn't work at all! I had to connect a wireless mouse via USB to do ANYTHING!

To add insult to injury, there's an inch-long scratch on the Midnight Blue lid that wasn't there the last time I sent it back!

So now, I've got the FAN/motherboard issue, some sort of Battery problem AND the Touchpad doesn't work! The scratch is the least of my worries...

Dell :: Studio 1555 Overheat + (warranty)

Apr 3, 2010

had my s1555 for about half a year and didnt have much problems with it hardware wise.

but recently, after the weather started getting hotter, i noticed my internal temperatures are getting quite high, using hardware moniter, expecially the gpu, which goes up to around 80s fast.

looking at hardware moniter, it seems the gpu heats up really fast but seems to cool quite fast too, like it would jup 3 degrees at a time when in a game.

i didnt pay much attention to it until i was in the middle of a game (warcraft 3, not even a 3d intensive game) and my comp shut down by itself, most likely due to gpu overheating.

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?

May 16, 2009

I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

Would the SSD be worth the extra money on this? Can the GPU handle games coming out like Diablo3 and Starcraft2?

Dell :: SSD In A M1710, Is It Worth It ?

Feb 21, 2010

I've searched the forum but could not find a definite answer.

My wife is using my old m1710 mainly for photoshop and i have noticed that it's very very hdd intensive. She complains that it would freeze sometimes when working with a lot of files or with large files.

I decided to upgrade the HDD to SSD, but after reading here and there i saw different opinions.

Some say i will not see any increase in performance because the bottleneck is the SATA support of m1710 mobo, some say still there will be increase in performance.
