I have a Dell vostro 1000
It was bought 22months ago and at 11 months made a pop noise and went off. Dell sent a man out who replaced the heat sync, motherboard and fan. All great til 5months later same fault. Helpline tells me it needs same 3 parts-i asked them surely there was a warranty on the repair? they said nope and i needed to pay aound £260. I argued it and a manager told me they could charge me £110 extra warranty and then fix for free but that was the best they could do. I just try to keep it cool so it stays on.
Anyway its 22months old and the message comes up battery needs replacing-if i unplug it lasts less than 5 minutes and i even paid extra for the extra cell battery!
Is this typical of what to expect? and have i dont something wrong othe than buy fom Dell as i feel they have well and truely done me over lol
At least i can still laugh....
Thanks anyone can help.
