Sony :: Post-Purchase Extended Warranty

Jun 2, 2009

Just received a Z610y as a college graduation gift, but it was not purchased with an extended warranty. I'm accident-prone, and am interested in a 3 year extended warranty with ADH.

I talked to someone at Sony Style who said I could purchase the warranty up to 30 days from the date of sale. I noticed newegg.com has one for sale, but when I talked to an associate there, they said it was only for sale with the purchase of a new laptop.

Sony :: Vaio Z Serieswhat Is Upgradeable Post-purchase

Mar 17, 2010

I'm considering buying a new Vaio Z series, and I'm trying to keep the initial price to a minimum whilst maximising what I need Sony to do at the factory.

So, what components are upgradeable?

Obvious ones:

- RAM
- HDD/SSD
- CPU
- GPU
- WWAN - can I add this at a later date should I find I need it?

From my research on here, I (think I) understand that the SSD isn't upgradeable due to a proprietary connector - what about buying a Z with a standard SATA drive? Does this use a standard SATA connector (and enable purchasing SSD drives aftermarket)?

Sony :: Vaio Extended Warranty

May 18, 2009

Last august i purchased a vaio sr from sonystyle with a 3 year express ship extended warranty w/out ADH. I assumed that this warranty would be automatically linked to my laptop serial and i would just be able to call up sony and initiate a repair after the 1 year manufacturers warranty expired. However,

from reading forum posts it seems I was supposed to have received warranty documents and I was supposed to have activated the warranty within a certain time period. However, these documents weren't included with my shipment

Sony :: Credit Card Extended Warranty

Apr 21, 2010

Just an FYI. I recently bought a Vaio NW from Best Buy using a credit card. I always use my card to pay for day-to-day expenses to collect the miles. I called the card company and they told me that they automatically extend the manufacturer's warranty for an additional year (effectively doubling Sony's) and if the computer is damaged due to mishandling or some other unfortunate incident, they will repair or replace for free. I did not pay any additional money for this.

Now, I don't know how good their repair services will be and I hope to never find out.

But I am glad that I did not spend the large amount to extend the warranty through Sony or Best Buy. Food for thought for you. It may be a good idea for all of you to check with your card company to see if they cover you.

Dell :: Problems With Extended Warranty

Feb 25, 2010

I have 3yr extended warranty with accidental damage, onsite next buisness day service including weekends.. I called on Tues Feb 16 to have the motherboard(card reader and head phone jack) dvd drive, and blown speakers fixed. The tech didn't show up till Monday the 22.They didn't send the speakers so the tech called to reorder the speakers and a another item that he noticed. He called back on Weds to tell me that the other items arrived but no speakers. He called Dell back and called me back last night saying Dell wanted to ask me about depot service. I have a newborn so I didn't get a chance to call till today. They said they would resend the speakers that they failed to send 2 times in a row. I'm mad because I paid for next day service and 10 days later it is still not fixed. What should I do?

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.

Could you guys tell me how I can figure out if the graphic card does have an extended warranty? Will I get any documentation mentioning it

Dell :: M1530 UKDo I Qualify For 1 Year Extended Warranty For Gpu?

Mar 18, 2010

Hello, sice the news about faulty 8xxx gpu's I have been hearing that Dell is offering 1 year extended warranty for gpu faults.

Example:

http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/desktop-...ault-39463022/

I have bought M1530 on 28th of April 2008, together with 1 year warranty. It expired on 28th of April 2009, however from what I am reading I qualify for 1 year extra GPU warranty, am I right?

But when I phoned Dell (it was when my AC adapter broke and needed replacement) on each occasion I asked about this extended warranty and they were always telling me that they never heard of it.

Am I being lied to? Or are they right? When I check the servicetag status of my laptop it says that warranty has expired and there is no extra warranty there (if there was it would apply till 29th of April 2010).

Please can someone explain it to me?

Dell :: CompleteCare Accidental Damage Protection WITHOUT Extended Warranty

Dec 26, 2009

When I bought my laptop, I was offered 5 years of Dell Complete Care Accidental Damage Protection even though I only had ONE year limited warranty. This was all over Dell Chat online support.

The representative assured me that I did NOT have to extend my warranty past one year in order to take advantage of five years of accidental care.

In other words, I would have no coverage on manufacturer's defects past the first year, but if I dropped my laptop four years down the road, Dell would replace or repair it.

Sony :: Parts Purchase? (1080p Z Series Screen)

Mar 16, 2010

So with best buy selling the low end model for $1699.99 I'm curious if there is a resource for purchasing z series parts like the 1920 x 1080 screen from the international versions (or the $4500 US version). Even if it's a $400 service part it's still worth it.

I'd have no problem replacing the screen and likely able to see the 1600x900 on ebay for some cash. I just haven't seen a place for Sony parts

Sony :: VAIO SZ61 Extended RAM To 4 GB

Aug 18, 2009

I just wanted to let you all know that I managed to get 4GB of RAM installed and up and running on my Sony Vaio SZ61.

This despite the fact that both my local sony reseller and the sony helpdesk argued that this was not possible.

I bought the laptop two years ago, with 2GB on board. In my memory they back then said it could be extended to 3GB but i have no proof for that.

Anyway, steps i took where very simple:
-update the BIOS to version R00122S5(downloaded from the sony site were the SZ61 was not even on there anymore...) It was compatible with the SZ71 according to sony so i took the change but is updated smoothly.
-bought 2 SODimm modules of 2GB pc5300 compatible (kingston)
-opened the laptop changed the dimm modules and off we go.

I run dual boot mostly Ubuntu Linux Jaunty and occasionally the vista that came with the laptop.

In both environments it is recognized and i can use 3.8GB

The laptop now is again up to the job(every day heavy usage, testing on VMs and datamining applications with big datasets etc etc.)

Sony :: Extended Battery Sticks Out

Jan 21, 2009

Why is it that the sony extended batteries come out from the bottom of the laptop(the z-axis) instead of out the back(y-axis), I kinda feel the Lenovo approach towards extended battery makes a lot more sense...

Sony :: Provantage Extended Service Plans

Feb 26, 2010

For those of you who own VAIO notebooks and purchased a Provantage Extended Service Plan did you ever have to send your notebook in for repair/service? If so how did it go? Did you send it to Provantage first or directly to a Sony service center? Are these plans the same ones that Sony Style sells only cheaper?

Sony :: Vaio Z11, Extended Batteries And Leather Case

May 11, 2010

I'm about to purchase a Vaio Z (sweeet!), with a config from the Sony website. They advertise the extended battery, but is that the VGP-BPL11 / S11 or X11?

here are the batteries.

I would think it's the middle ground battery, the X11 being some kind of special James Bond-type add on, but I'd like a confirmation if anyone is able to provide. I tried to contact their support but it's just not getting through.

Furthermore, are these all compatible with the VGPCKZ2.AE case? Looks perfect for my needs.

Sony :: Post Your FW's Windows Experience Index Score

Nov 23, 2009

I was curious as to what sort of scores Windows 7 is giving to different specs of FWs.

Heres mine:
Processor: P8700 ------>6.1
Memory: 4 GB --------->6.1
Graphics:ATI HD4650--->5.9
Gaming Graphics-------->6.6
Primary Hard Disk(7200rpm 320 gb)--->5.8 (base)

I have a 490CTO with win7 home premium. I can't remember but I think that I had exactly the same score with vista, only nothing went over 5.9. The HDD score was the same. Did anybody else get a different base score after upgrading to 7?

Sony :: Sleep And Hibernate Issues Post Vista SP3

Sony :: [Vaio VGN-FW11e] Output To External Monitor During POST

Jun 11, 2009

I just bought a used but fully working Vaio VGN-FW11e with a cracked screen (got it for a good price). The lcd-panel had been removed but the lid is intact. The cracked screen didn't bother me since I planned to have it permanently hooked up to my projekter using the VGA-output.

The problem is that it doesn't seem to turn on the VGA-out before Windows has loaded, i.e. it is impossible to see the POST/loading of BIOS. When trying to restore Windows to its factory settings (since the old owner had left all his files and folders all over the place) using the Vaio Recovery Center something went wrong and now I'm left with a dead system.

When turning the computer on I can hear and see what seems like a proper POST, i.e. the hard drive spinning, the dvd drive spinning etc. But a few seconds after start, when it's supposed to start loading Windows it just stay still, most likely with some kind of error message.

I desperately need to be able to activate the VGA out during BIOS to be able to reinstall Windows. According to Sony this is not possible. But it sound almost silly since every other laptop I have had has been able to output a picture to VGA directly during POST. Is there some way since the obvious Fn-F7 doesn't work?

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)?
