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)?

Dell :: Warranty

Jan 4, 2009

I have a Dell XPS1330 and have a problem with it and I dont know if my laptop is still under warranty.

I searched on Dell's website with my service tag and the only thing I found was that I have a "Rapid Response Depot"? What does it mean? Does it mean that I can send my laptop to Dell to be repaired?

Dell :: Should Buy Warranty And Replacement?

Apr 13, 2010

I read lots of people getting replacements for their 2-4 yr old laptops with Dell warranty. I've been using my e1505 since June 2007 and just ordered 1558 last weekend, but with only 1-yr basic warranty.

Which warranties are those people using? Premium or Advanced? Which is comparable to "Complete Care"? Also, would it be cheaper to buy more expensive warranty at the checkout or buy extension once I receive the system?

Warranties cost only a few hundred dollars and people just seem to be getting amazing replacement laptops, like e1505 to SXPS 16.

Dell :: Transferred The Warranty

Nov 12, 2009

The reseller transferred the warranty and this was evident by tech support provided in the first few months of ownership. I recently contacted Dell due to my Nvidia Geforce 8800M graphics card not being disabled by Windows. I assume I have a physical problem with my card..

Dell now says I do not have a warranty, that it was never transferred. I pointed out the early tech support and the fact that I know for a fact the warranty was transferred by the reseller. Dell tells me to recontact the reseller and again have the warranty transferred. The reseller is out of business..

Am I up a creek without a paddle or is Dell sandbagging due to the onslaught of video problems with XPS M1730's..

Dell :: Warranty Extension

May 28, 2010

To keep is short I was trying to extend the warrant for my xps m1530.The online systems doesnít seem to be working after hitting purchase options the page just keeps reloading with Firefox or IE so itís off to the phone.

My first call I get a quote of $169 for a 1 year or $255 plus a $50 rebate for 2 years. Can you imagine I get disconnected? I call back now I get a quote of $179 for a one year and $254 with no rebate available for 2 years. I ask to speak to a supervisor and of course get disconnect again.

Now I try the chat system here is what I got from them.
05/27/2010 02:33:26PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "for one year, it would be $279, and for two years it's $418.69"
05/27/2010 02:33:48PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "i could offer a $75 giftcard on either one, but that's the only price i have"


While Iím chatting a supervisor calls me and we agree on a deal for $254 for 2 years. I didnít have a credit card with me so said she would call me at 1pm to make the purchase. She calls gets all the information goes off to process it. Comes back no saying it would be $279 for 1 and $418 for 2 with no gift card available.

I asked to speak to her supervisor and of course disconnected again if you can imagine that. Well thanks for letting me vent.Dell has just lost a long time customer.

Dell :: Latitude OS And Warranty

Apr 6, 2009

Going to purchase an E6500 and am wondering which OS to go with. This laptop will need to play well with the other machines on our home intranet in terms of file/printer sharing and such. Two of these machines have vista home and two with xp home.

The options are:
vista home basic - included in price
vista business - +$50

1. What are main differences between vista home and vista business?

2. Are both the vista home and vista business 64 bit? If not, how important is the whole 32 bit, 64 bit deal?

In addition, some clarification on the warranty options would be appreciated. I did read the description but am still a little confused.

The options are:

3 year limited + 3 year mail in - included in price
So this means 3 year warranty total, possibly no understandable English speaking phone support, and you must mail in the machine for repair .....

Dell :: Need Warranty With An M4400?

Mar 8, 2009

I'm about to purchase an M4400 as a mobile editing station but I've only got one reservation. Basically, I can buy one with a dell 3 year warranty or I can buy a better speced one for 20% less that doesn't have a warranty as it's from a liquidation of assets sale.

Now, I'm pretty handy with computers/laptop and in the past I've taken apart laptops to replace CPU's, motherboards, hard drives, etc. so I'm fairly comfortable with fixing things when they go wrong. But my question is whether I should expect things to go wrong. I'm especially concerned about the screen and the occurrence of dead pixels. Is this commonplace and how many dead pixels does it take for dell to accept a returns anyway?

At home I have a Dell 2407WFP-HC and I've never had any problems with it. I built my desktop computer myself and I'm not concerned with parts of it going wrong as it's easy to find replacement parts, but the same can't be said for laptops, and there is a significant cost differential!

So, is it worth paying a 25% premium to have the dell warranty? I'm a frugal man, and a penny saved is always a good thing in my book, but not at the expense of having to shell out in 6 months when something goes wrong .....

Dell :: Warranty Concern

Dec 29, 2009

Well, let me start off by saying that I received by M1530 at the beginning of this year as an exchange for a Vostro 1500 I had a bunch of little issues with.

To be honest, there was nothing truly wrong with the Vostro 1500, but I'm a sly-talking-Computer-Science-major that was sick of dell support giving me the run-around dozens of times, so I bullied them and got a $1400 system to replace my original $800 purchase

Now the dreaded heat issues related to the 8600m gt are starting to rear their ugly heads. Dell covers this issue a year past the regular warranty, so I have until February or something for the card to die or warrant a replacement.

So my issue is that I originally did not want to deal with dell support so I went ahead and put some AS-5 on the GPU and CPU. Previously I was experiences system shut down during heavy gaming.

The AS-5 only lowered the temperature a couple of degrees average (celsius) and it's been over 200 hours for the curing ......

Dell :: CompleteCare Warranty

May 30, 2010

I paid extra for 3 years of completecare when I bought my SXPS16. Recently, I found a number of scratches on the inside of the screen and called them up hoping for a replacement screen. They told me that I'd have to send it in. Do I really not have the onsite? I wouldn't have paid extra for the warranty had I known that they wouldn't send a tech if problems arose.

Dell :: Replacement With New Warranty

Feb 23, 2009

I have read a lot of posts which refer to faulty laptop replacement within the first 21 days of ownership. I am in the UK and recall that when I bought a Dell 20" monitor a few years back there was a limitation of 30 days for replacement with a new item.

Following that period, any replacement would be a re-furbished unit. During the 30 day period Dell sent me 3 replacement monitors before I got one with acceptable backlight bleed. They kept sending them without picking up the previous ones. Eventually they arranged a time to collect all the less than perfect monitors.

Can someone post a link to this policy of replacement with new for the first 21 or 30 days only? I have read the Customer Master Service Agreement, the Basic Hardware Support and the XPS NBD Warranty, but I can still find no reference to this policy.

Is there such a thing as having too many replacements by using the warranty?

From time to time, I see people sell laptops that are broken but still have their warranty.

Crazy I know and these laptops go for a cheap price as well. I'm surprised these sellers don't send in the laptops to Dell to get them fixed. Would it be suspicious to Dell if I have numerous laptops replaced in a short period of time?
