Dell :: XPS Customer Service Experience

Feb 8, 2010

Well, I think it's more usual for people to leave comments over bad experiences than good experiences, so I think it would be good to do it.

Few days ago I had a problem with a XPS 1330 which suddenly stopped working. Something related with a shortcircuit with the power supply.

I checked guarantee and happily found that I bought the 3 year extended guarantee with the laptop and it was on the third year so i called customer support and after some small checks they decided it had to do with the motherboard so they ordered a replacement for me for the next day.

I even messed with the asking to come later as I wanted to backup data (just for security). Did the backup and called them again few days later. Again I had no problem, next day a technician came to my home and changed the motherboard. In matter of minutes i had the laptop working again.

Dell :: Customer Service Postive Experience

Nov 10, 2009

I had a positive experience with Dell

1st time my Son broke his mouse button on his 1501
Called Dell, within 40 minutes he had a RMA box being sent out, he got the Day after and sent his computer in within 10 days it was back in his hands fixed 0 money out of his pocket.

2nd and 3rd I had onsite warranty service the person was prompt nice and did a great job. I was satisfied, 3 day turn around on that.

4th time I have this 1555, I used the chat yesterday morning, it was faster then calling, within 40 Minutes it was agreed the laptop needed to be fixed, my space bar had popped off twice and I noticed it looked warped, I need this laptop so I agreed to the extra cost of onsite this time, no only was it promised this week but they came today, next day and replaced the keyboard within 40 minutes this am. I thought it was worth the extra.

now fixed and totally satisfied.

Of course I know Dell can screw up but lets be honest there are times they do not and we need balance at times.

Dell :: Appalling Customer Service And Sales

Apr 25, 2010

I'm in the process of ordering a Dell Studio 17 with:

CA Sales Dinker 1307

I've customized my order, and then gave it to him, which was a grand total of 1313.50$.

This conversation has been going on for 30 minutes because he keeps adding items I told him I do not want, and now he refuses to remove them.

He's been adding Office and Anti Virus software and now he refuses to remove it. He keeps trying to upsell me 6GB of Ram and I told him I only want 4GB of ram.

Dell :: General Question About Customer Service.

Apr 19, 2009

I keep hearing horror stories about consumer customer support and higher praise of business support.

My question is where does the support for a system such as the Studio XPS 16 fall in. I here that the XPS line has better support, but does that make a difference if I order it from the consumer (Home) section?

Dell :: Studio 17 W/ Horrible Customer Service

Jan 4, 2010

Without boring you with all the details I wanted to inform this community of the wonderfully painful experience I had with Customer Support when I ordered my studio 17.

First it was a month lead time on a custom build. This I can understand since I did order it at the beginning of the school year.

So on the day it was supposed to ship they called me and told me it wasn't shipping because the screen was back-ordered and they had no idea when I would get it .....

HP/Compaq :: HP Customer Service

Apr 10, 2010

I called HP to try and get a quote on the envy 15, unsurprisingly I get a foreign sales rep. I tell them I'm trying to get a quote to compare prices between this and the m15x which is almost the same price. Dell customer support had no trouble understanding this and talked with me. The HP rep was literally just telling me things I could find on the website I've called HP 3 times and I get a bad rep each one.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15Personal Customer Service Experience

Apr 20, 2010

I wanted to share my recent experience with HP and to serve as a warning for anyone else planning on checking out the hp envy 15. I was one of the first to buy the envy from the day it was launched back in fall of last year, but had to return it due to a bad gpu. That was fine and the return went alright, and I ordered the 2nd gen one the day it was announced as well and I got it with the new core i5 processor and matte screen. The laptop was delayed in its delivery like many of the other members here and I got it around the beginning of February (so about a 1 month delay). Of course HP had no problem in charging me within hours of me placing the order and 1 month out from when I would actually receive it due to their own delays.

Since then it had been running just fine for the most part, with just a lot of heat build-up when playing any sort of game. Eventually however there seems to have been some longer-term repercussions due to the heat, namely that the edges started to expand out and peel away from the case. This led to the edges starting to chip off (I'm talking about the bright silver plastic edge that outlines the laptop). I published an early review for the envy 15 for the first gen model in case you wanted pictures of the palmrest edges. I could clearly see in at least one corner that due to heat build-up it seemed as though the adhesive that was holding the plastic edge to the main case was getting loose and as a result of the plastic was bulging out........

HP/Compaq :: HP Customer Service/Repair Is HORRID- Don't Get The Integrated TV Tuner

Feb 22, 2009

So I got my DV5t in January. I sent it in to Zagg immediately after receipt to have an InvisibleShield put on it. As soon as I started using the notebook I was having trouble with the integrated TV tuner I/O port not making a proper connection (I would have to prop the cable up with something.) After about a week and a half the port completely failed.

So, I call tech support and spend 2 hours on the phone with some person in India while they try to understand what I'm trying to tell them. They took control of my computer a couple of times to remove/reinstall the drivers. After which she opened up WMC and went to "Internet TV" and tried to tell me that the tuner was working properly. So after we got that SNAFU worked out and the problem clearly explained (1.5 hours into the call) she tried to get me to approve the sending of a replacement antenna saying that it was the problem. I explained to her that I had tested both the antenna and the CATV connector and they were both doing exactly the same thing. Eventually I get a repair ticket and send the notebook in to get repaired. Well they replaced my wireless card instead of my TV tuner and sent it back to me. The repair note said that the wireless card had been flagged on a diagnostic. I don't know if the person at the TN repair center couldn't read or what because my customer repair request form (the one I fill out) stated that my problem was with the TV tuner. So I call tech support again and after an hour I get another repair ticket and send it in. Now they are trying to charge me $296 to repair the TV tuner claiming it was "customer induced damage." That's more than a third of the price of what I paid for the computer.

The reason I say don't get the integrated TV tuner is because if HP is going to view any problems with the the tuner port as "customer induced damage" then they are going to try to get you to foot the bill. In my opinion if you want a tuner just get an aftermarket (HP or other).

Dell :: Office Restore Disks (and 's Customer "service")

Mar 11, 2009

I wanted to know if Dell would supply MS Office restore disks for XPS laptops, what with W7 coming up. Took a look on these forums - and initial signs looked good, with people saying that you can just order these from dell.

I thought I'd check with Dell though and phoned. Finally got through to someone on my third attempt, who immediately launched into the hard sell. I said I wasn't interested, just wanted to know: do XPS laptops come with recovery disks for Office, if not could I order them later?

Her response - I would get the disks ONLY if I placed my order through her, it was not possible to get them later. I thanked her and ended the call. 2 secs later my phone rings, and it's the woman from Dell giving me the hard sell again. I say "look, I ended this call" to which she says "In that case I recommend you do not call Dell again"(the cheek!)

Dell :: Customer Care Experiences ..

Dec 12, 2009

I have had my M1330 (yes the one with the NVIDIA 8400M chip) have had no major problems to date. However, two days ago I had some touchpad issues i.e. a sluggish, unresponsive touchpad so I decided to contact Dell. The experience was really good I go an agent by the name of Mr. Abdul Aleem who was really friendly and provided me with a form to transfer my ownership and then he fixed the issue.

Now earlier this year I contacted Dell about another machine and this wacko was telling me that since I bought the laptop at Best Buy I should go to Best Buy to deal with warranty issues despite the laptop having 1 year basic warranty from Dell.

So I was very pleased with the interaction with Mr. Aleem.

So this a thread to share your experiences with Dell's Customer Care.

Dell :: Customer Support Is Such A Pain To Deal With

Jun 15, 2009

It's not just the typical "oooh they're all indian" thing. I'm very tolerable of their accents and they've done well emulating english as best they can.

But sometimes they can't understand me and I have to repeat myself a lot.

But the more important issue is that sometimes they're just plain stupid. I'm not saying they're actually unintelligent I just mean they're programmed to go by scripts and pass the buck CONSTANTLY. They never know what I'm talking about even though it's their own company.
They always transfer me to someone new who knows nothing .....

Dell :: Service

Mar 26, 2009

My new Studio XPS 1640 appears to have a bad WiFi card. It is very difficult to get it to connect to the network, and it has fits where it drops contact.

So, I contacted XPS tech support. After doing the usual opening questions, they have proceeded as follows:

1) I was assigned an XPS tech and given their specific telephone information so that they could serve as single point of contact.

2) I was told "we will own this issue and get it resolved".

3) They then set an appointment to speak to me when I had sufficient time to do things like driver changes and trying to reseat the minicard. We performed those steps Monday night.

4) After the reset they wanted me to use it heavily on network for at least 24 hours with them checking in to determine if the issues were still present. Unfortunately they were.

5) At this point, the initial diagnosis was Dell was going to send a tech to replace the minicard, antenna and the motherboard (going a bit overboard?). I agreed and the tech was scheduled.

6) 45 minutes later my tech called. She had discussed the situation with her supervisor and they wanted instead to replace THE ENITRE LAPTOP. So, they are now doing a new XPS 1640 built to the same specs as the original. It will be shipped to me and I am simply to put the original in the box and have Fedex come get it .......

Dell :: XPS 16 In A Service Nightmare

Mar 16, 2010

Like many others here when i updated the Bios to V12, my battery would no longer charge with the notice that my AC was not seen by the computer- So after calling techs for assistance it was determined that the motherboard would need to be changed.

So the next day they were out to replace the MB, Which was completed and the battery would once again charge,.

After the tech left i noticed that the machine was much slower then it was before- So now im thinking another bad MB. I check the system prop page to find i now only have 1gb of Ram- What did the tech forget to put the other 2 back in -

I open the back there are are 2 sticks, a 1 and a 2, so i reseat the ram- again just 1gb- Hmmm- I switch them from slot to slot- Now it will not power up... Oh great bad ram stick... So i take it out- reboot- about 10 min later- the machine locks up... the harddrive is not being seen- what the F.... I remove the harddrive to find the connector to it is chipped off... Come on.....

I spend the next 10 hours working with an external connector tape and a lot of booze to get about 50% of my data recovered.

Dell :: Depot Service

Dec 11, 2008

I sent my XPS M1710 in for repair Nov 11 and they received it Nov 13. I was told it would take over a month, it was on back log. I called yesterday to get the status and got nowhere fast. I tried logging in to Dell chat using my service tag number, the response was "Our records indicate that your service tag belongs to a system that was purchased outside the United States." Can I get some advice on what to do?

Also: My CPU highest temp was 183 Fahrenheit.

Your opinions?

Dell XPS 14Z :: Service Tag Not Supported

Nov 20, 2014

My version of Roxio Creator Starter was corrupted yesterday (could not find some DLL) and the recommended fix was to re-install the software.

When I tried to re-download the software off My Dell Downloads, I found that my service tag was not supported.  Dell's FAQs told me that this was because my system doesn't have anything available for download from My Dell Downloads.

More to the point, I would like to get Roxio Creator Starter back.  I was led to believe that I could do this through My Dell Downloads, but that isn't working.

Dell :: Extending My Service Contract?

Jan 23, 2008

Just got an email from Dell stating that my service contract will expire in 30 days.

How much would this be to renew, and how long does it renew it for? Also, if I wanted to add accidental coverage, how much additional would that be? Do they replace the laptop if its dropped, broken, yet still functional?

I would call Dell, but I'm at work and wouldn't be able to contact them until tomorrow evening if I'm lucky.

Dell :: Service Tag / Warranty Transfer

Nov 9, 2007

I just bought a used dell laptop from a dealer, it wasn't sold with a warranty, but looking up the service tag, I found that there's 6 months left on the warranty.

I don't have the original owner's details, but has anyone had any luck getting Dell to transfer registration in these circumstances? - I understand that they might be cautious, but I'd guess they would have a list of reported stolen tag #'s to check against to prevent crims doing this.

I'd like to get the tag changed so that I can order OS media, but the warranty would be a bonus if it's possible.
