I had pawned an Acer Aspire Notebook on May 27th 2013. I went and retrived the notebook on July 3, 2013. I took the notebook home and put it away. I go to college and my major is Computer Science, so I have a great big HP that I use for school. Well I went to the closet and took the Acer Notebook out 0n the 11th of July, 2013. I plug it in to set it back-up because I had restored it to factory condition for the pawn shop. What a surprise I got, when it was first plugged in I noticed things didn't seen right. Keep in mind that I had trusted the owner for over 2 years. The notebook had been stripped of all working parts and had been replace with off the market parts, not good parts just enough to cause injury and havoc. Someone in A to Z pawn apparently does not like the fact that WalMart gets their Acers from China. So I was the victim. I call the Pawn shop and he said oh bring it in and when I did he wanted nothing to do with it. [continued below]....

..... He said oh ths serial numbers match and I told him this is not my notebook. Someone had gutted it and boobie trapped it to where it would cause injury. You cold tell by looking at it that it was not right. They had removed the top case to steal the HD screen, cam and speakers. They glued the top shell on backwards and they Had Put Acer Aspire One on the the top shell. My top shell never had Acer or One on it. Mine was a later version, One was an earlier version. They removed the wi-fi, the cpu, the fan and AMD proscessor. They removed the multi gesture touch pad, they removed the HDMI and replaced with a plug that looked like one but if you put power to it and tried to use it, it would shock you and blow up.They removed the memory and they took the orginal battery and replaced with a low voltage battery that was just good enough to power the traps they set to hurt people.They also took out the bluetooth and wireless key board and mouse capability. The took the WLAN out and replaced it with A 5ghz RLAN. They put a fake French keyboard in. They then took my box and another box and fused then and printed fake paper work. The paper work states Declaration of Conformity it says this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Then it list New Taipei,Taiwan as an address and says to contact Mr. Easy Lai, email easy_lai@acer .com.tw. Then there are the instructions, the instructions pave the way for every boobie trap. The firt one was when you plug it up it shocks and blows up, if that one  does not get you it tells you to press Fn+F3 and click on wireless, they took the wireless so you know that is rigged, then it tells you to plug in the earthnet and use the LAN, this is number 3 trap if the other two didn't get you, there is no real LAN, Then the next to the last is a command. It tells you that if you want more info on your Acer to click start>all programs>AcerSystem>AcerSystem User Guide. Considering that there is no real processor or operating system, a trap. Then the last thing they did if all else failed they made it to where if you tried to dismantle it would go off in some way. They have connectors under pressure. Haven't done anything to see  what will happen I'm going to let Acer do that. Acer wants the notebook, they say this sounds like an attempt to injury someone. The Pawn shop man could have cared less he wouldn't even read the paper work. He could have care less if someone could have got hurt and I trusted this man. The piece of paperwoork that tells you that it has been tampered with I will gladly fax it to anyone who wants to see it and I will fax the rest too. Oh and where the wireless used to be they have some sort of charge there, it is the thing that will go off if it is triggered and underneath it they have a sticker that looks like a circuit board but if you look just right it there is an image of a devil with smoke coming from his ears. So way to go A to Z, you my friend are a useless human being. Too bad you chose someone who knew about computers to screw over.
