On April 11, 2008, I called for service. I was able to verify all information asked except for the ebay item number. Because I was unable to verify the ebay item number, I was refused service.
On June 11, 2008, I called for service again. This time I had the ebay item number handy and was forwarded to a technician. After I explained my problem, I was told that I needed to follow the manufacturer's suggested maintenance which was having the fans cleaned every year.
In effect, they were asking me to send my laptop to a service facility and spend more money on top of the cost of the 3 year warranty and that I needed to show proof of this service with a service invoice before they would help me. This does not make any sense to me. If this is true, why buy the 3 year warranty in the first place.
I asked to speak to a supervisor, and he stood firm on what the tech told me and I ended up not getting helped with my problem.
