I purchase the V2Premeire system from Viscom via ShopNBC on or around November 28th, 2005. The PC was sold with a 45 day return policy. The packages were shipped and in my possession on December 12, 2004.

No copy of the Warrenty for the PC was provided.

Everything worked great till 1/17 - when the PC stopped working. Contacting support--the determination was made that the hard-drive and motherboard were dead and would need to be replaced.

They refused--despite the fact that the return policy was 45 days--to swap out the tower, saying that the 45 day return policy had expired on 1/14.

Instead they ordered parts to be sent to a technition who would contact me within 10 days to fix the PC and install new parts.

After 5 day I contacted them for a status report and they said that I should hear from them within the next week.

After 14 day with no contact, I contacted support again. At this point I was referred to the Warrenty Company. They informed me that the part order had not been processed and I would have to wait another two weeks.

I again called the company and complained, asking for them to swap the TOWER. They said this was outside the warrenty coverage (which I have not received). I complained about the lack of progress and the support person became angry with me and hung up (his support badge was number 75).

I called again and spoke to another support person who was badge 013. He was more polite and promised when the batch order of parts was placed that evening--he would make sure that mine was made a priority.

Checking several days later (today) I am told no order was place for parts. I am back to square one - and will apparently not have a working PC for another couple weeks, if not longer.

I left a message with a supervisor about badge 75 and requested a call back--but no such call was ever made.

The Warrenty Company blames the Manufactor--and visa versa. Meanwhile, I have a $2399.93 piece of junk on my desk.

What now?

Here is What I did

AUTHOR: Nancy - (U.S.A.)

I had a similar problem with my computer from v2premier. What I finally did was I called customer service of shopNbc and asked to talk to a supervisor. I told her the problem and that since Shopnbc sold it and warranted it, it was their ultimate responsibility. She emailed a supervisor at Viscom to call me and he did the next day. I got part of the problem done. then I sent email to one of the hosts (Mike Davidson) who sells te computer and told him I was not happy and that I was going to sue the hosts, shopNBC, viscom etc. I did not hear back from him but I did get an email from Angela in the presidents office of shopnbc. (apparently she puts out fires). Once she was involved, I got things done and now everything is fine. Why not ty that. Go right to the top. The "Warranty" is printed on the white 4 page paper that came witt the computer that has the phone numbers to call etc. Hope this helps.
