Q: Purchased 3 years warranty; laptop/account showing as out of warranty after 2 years

As the title suggests - my invoice specifically says 3yrs warranty was purchased with my M3800 in November 2014. I'm now showing as out of warranty after 2yrs
I'm having issues with a screen that was replaced in May/June 2016 and would like a replacement as I believe the unit is faulty. Please can you get in touch to resolve.
Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am considering purchase extended warranty for my newly arrived Thinkpad x1 carbon. After enter the serial on Lenovo's warranty upgrade page, it quoted me $15 for 3Y Keep Your Drive compatible with Onsite warranty (see photo). Is this the same as 3 years onsite warranty priced at $109 at presale? If this is true, why would anyone purchase warranty at the same time as they purchase their laptop?

A:Lenovo's 3 years extended warranty $15 vs $109, what is the difference?

the 3yr keep your drive allows you to keep your drive/ssd/hdd if it fails.  It is not the same as adding onsite warranty. Under the terms of the Lenovo Limited Warranty, when Lenovo replaces a defective part, that part becomes the property of Lenovo. If a drive fails and it is still under warranty, KYD enables you to maintain custody of your data, eliminating the need to track failed hard drives in transit and eliminating associated paperwork. KYD covers multiple drives and failures, so data within individual PCs and Servers remains protected. https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/service/services/warranty-and-maintenance-3-years-with-system-purchase...

My last ThinkPad was two decades ago and it last me years. Eventually, software progression outpaced it while hardware still going strong.  Not sure if the quality of ThinkPad dropped or what. But my x1c6 HDR screen turned pink (see photo) twice within just a week of ownership. I have to close and reopen the lid for it to go away. Bad connection between the LCD and MB? In addition, I also heard a few stories which mysterious cracks developed on the lid after a few months of usage.  I don't want to bother with warranty claim since it is within the 30 days return period. If I do decide to x1c6 another chance, should I get extended accidental warranty just to safe? How often does x1 develop issues down the road?

I was wondering how do people decide to purchase ADP service for Yoga X1 1. Does Lenovo have good APD protection? When I see their terms and condition in agreement.. It is very ambiguous. ex) What this agreement does not cover: B. Damage or Alteration from intentional misuse, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, improper maintence..... Some of horror cases I have check from websites and community were: -Depot service center delay fix or replacement (no supervisor action) so customer has to come to community website for help (moderator from Lenovo?) delayed period was 2-3 months  -"Unsuitable physical or operating environment can be basically applied to ANY case?" Some people complained the denial of ADP service due to the accident that happened in this follow situtations:1. Using laptop other than the desk (not suitable operating environment) -  what about convertible table like Yoga x1?2. Something is dropped to the laptop (???) - if the accident is not fall or drop itself (automatic intentional damage)3. Based on web search, I don't really see people who got ADP support and giving review about it. So I asked sales chat support, but sale support's definition of unsuitable physical or operating environment is only fire/flood case. laptop can be used in work/ ourdoor environment. Just by seeing unsuitable physical or operating environment, how can customers become cautious?

Hello, Earlier this year I had my laptop repaired due to issues with the touchscreen and mouse. My warranty then expired in the middle of this year. Now the hinges/cover that were removed to replace the screen are failing. (I also noticed that the cover clips were significantly damaged during the repair when it popped off) Do I have any options here to get this repaired? This was something they had to touch to do the earlier repair and something I could not touch under normal circumstances. Does anyone have any experiance with this? I can't find a good way to contact the warranty department due to my warrenty being expired.

I had saved my user id and pw so that I didn't have to login. I go to hotmail.com, and its all in chinese! But I can see that they've posted six flat screen tvs on ebay. So I go to ebay, and they had hacked that account, also, but I was able to get that fixed. Although they are doing it over and over, so maybe I can freeze the account.

Anyway, I logged out of the hotmail, thinking I could log back in and see it in english. But of course, they changed my password and security question's answer. So I made a HUGE mistake because now, I can't get in it AT ALL.

I was thinking, since I had it saved on this computer, there would be something in the temp files, or a cookie. So I looked, and its there, but is there anything I can do to restore it and get myself back into the account?

I've sent the hacked info to hotmail support, but it says to allow 24 hours for a response.

Hello all!  I have just recieved the HP Spectre X360 13-4003DX purchased from http://www.adorama.com/IHPL0Q51UAR.htmland I wanted to ask a few questions about what kind of things are covered in the Refurbished 90 day HP warranty.  I  understand it's a used device but are any sort of dents/scratches covered under the warranty? There are a couple scratches on the screen which you can't really notice when the screen's on but when it's off you can easily see them. There are a couple knicks on the sides and small dents on the underside. Nothing major, certainly something I can live with  but I was just curious.  I have noticed there seems to be a dead pixel on the screen as well, is there anything I can do about that?  And then for some reason the fan is running considerably loud, louder than my old dv6 that have running right next to it. I don't know if that's a malfunction in the fan itself or that's just how it runs.  My last question/problem that I'm experiencing is with the hinge itself, it seems very loose in that whenever I lightly place the laptop on my lap the screen simply falls down it doesn't seem to have any rigidness to it. Even when placed on a table for exaple using the touch screen can be quite annoying as it tends to bounce around on my every touch. Is there a way I can tighten this?  I figured since I was buying refurbished all the problems would be worked out but it doesn't seem to be th... Read more

I bought a Lenov Ideapad 510 15IKB on 14th April 2017. Now I'm facing 2 issues with the warranty registration and warranty upgrade: Issue#1On April 16th I registered the base warranty of my product as it should start from the purchase date of my product. After few email conversations for purchase proof, finally on 3rd May, I received email confirming the base warranty registration of my product. It was starting from 14th April 2017 and ending on 13th April 2018. I checked the same on lenovo website. But few days back when I again checked the warranty status, it was restored to factory warranty (15 Oct 2016 - 13 nov 2017). I don't know why this happened and how this happened. When I contacted lenovo, they said that warranty is updated in their database but how can I beleive when I can't see this on warranty lookup section of the Lenovo official website. I have also attached the screen shot of warranty lookup page as of today (22 June 2017). Issue#2I registered for 2 year warranty extension under Back To School offer (Ticket Number - ADP-BTS-025399) on www.buyalenovo.com and made a payment of INR 999/- on 6th May 2017.

A:End user warranty starts from Base warranty or end users date of purchase?

Hi,
 
Warranty starts with date of purchase.  You just have to register with Lenovo that you have wrong start date.  I had to do same thing with my niece's laptop.  See below website.  I just had to upload the purchase receipt to get the warranty start date corrected.  Hope the below helps.

First I must say English is not my mother-tongue. So I'm sorry for any spelling mistakes I may do. I also needed to translate the error's text to English as my system doesn't run in English so it will not be written as it would in an English running system.

I found my sister's laptop (windows vista home basic) which wasn't in use for the last 2 years. She thought it was broken, but I realized it was infected by viruses (it crashed to "the blue screen of death" after one minute of use).
So I lunched it in "safe mod" and used the AVG anti-virus to clean it as much as AVG could.
Apparently it was good enough to lunch the computer normally. Now with internet connection, I downloaded NOD32 anti-virus, updated it and cleaned more infected files (also I used malwarebytes anti-malware). Now the computer is completely clean (so please don't advice my on the cleaning viruses matter).
Now to real problem.
I can't update the windows vista (re-installing it is not an option because I don't have the installation disk).

Honestly I have been very loyal to HP my whole life but I am pretty much done. My 3rd HP laptop in the last 4 year just died completely yesterday. My most recent laptop was working fine, and I liked it too (to be honest I liked all my 3 HP laptops) it had an issue with the screen, I am guessing faulty wiring in the laptop because the screen use to distort sometimes when the screen was moved up or down but it would be okay if it was moved again. Nothing too major. But yesterday I was using my laptop fine during the day. I took a nap just to wake up to my laptop not turning on anymore. Tried many different things to turn it on but it is completely dead. Called techinal support and first of all I was on like a 20 min hold before I got a hold of someone whereas when I call to buy products from HP it doesnt take longer than 2 mins to get a hold of someone. Tech support could barely help and they wanted to do a diagnosis to tell me what is wrong with my laptop and just to do the diagnosis they wanted $60. I honestly don't understand. They want money to tell me whats wrong with there machine which lost its warranty exactly a month from today so it's not even that old. Going to go fix the laptop in an electronic store if it's cheap, otherwise just going to retrieve my data and buy a new laptop which is anything BUT HP

How many years can I expect the battery last?  Also, will Lenovo always have spare batteries of this model in stock, even after it has gone out of production? Say I buy this laptop and keep it well maintained, and so I am still using it 20 years later. Will Lenovo continue to supply batteries for it for this long?

A:How many years does a typical laptop battery last?

20 years is a long time.  17 years ago, a current laptop was a T20, running windows 98.  DIMMs were PC100 64MB.  Even if maintained, it would be hard-pressed to do any real work.  It could support a modem (telephone) and an optional ethernet card.  A 10-year-old machine is a T60 and I still have one of those that I use for one particular task, but I expect I would be unable to find a new, genuine Lenovo T60 battery, although aftermarket batteries are available.  (same for a T20).  The problem is not keeping stock.  Lithium batteries age whether they are used or not.  There isn't enough demand for computer makers to keep making them.  Aftermarket re-manufacturers replace cells. I would expect that 17 years from now, your P50 will be as obsolete as a T20 is today.
 
To answer your first question, Lithium batteries deteriorate over time.  After 3 - 5 years, most people find that the capacity has fallen enough that they replace the battery.  I have a laptop that I ran on battery for several hours every day and recharged every night.  With that kind of use, after a year and a half (about 500 recharge cycles) my run time decreased enough that I replaced the battery.

If you reinstalled Windows by Formatting (erasing) the HDD and installing Windows, you would have theoretically restored your computer to 5 years ago. Go to Start/Run and type chkdsk C: /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. the Check Disk utility will run at next boot up and try and fix any file errors.

I got my HP Pavilion in October 2015 as a birthday present. It's 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM, Windows 10, AMD A10 processor, 64 bit.
It was working really well for a little while, but a few weeks ago I started noticing problems and now... well, they have gotten much worse.
THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE is this: I cannot install new software. I've been told no with everything from Paint.NET to iTunes. I try and install something and it tells me 'Something else is being installed'. Now I usually suspect AVG of that sort of problem. But I tried to update my AVG antivirus and that gave me the same error! It's very annoying as I've just bought a brand new iPhone and I can't get any music or films onto it without iTunes!
The problems have been seen everywhere else too- requests are not being dealt with. If I want to launch an external application from the web (say, downloading content), the application opens but if I'm saving something the wizard won't load.
Another alarming issue is that USBs are now not being recognised. I plugged my old phone in and it kept disappearing; and Windows was unable to read its contents even though I then used my stepdad's PC and it worked fine.
It's slowing down too... vastly. It takes it a long time to think about anything and recently battery life has dropped a small amount.
I have done too whole computer scans now; everything coming up roses and saying there is no problem.

Boot to Safe Mode with Networking, try it form there. If okay then something is starting when you boot that is causing the problem, so use Clean Install to isolate the problem.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

I am in need of any suggestions--
My daughter has a 2 year old HP laptop and the screen is black--no cursor, nothing.
She has done these things:
cleaned vents of dust
tried another monitor--it was black too
remove battery and power and hold power 60 seconds
remove each RAM module one at a time and test each slot
tapped function keys when powering on

The laptop sounds normal when she pushes the power button and the indicator lights blink, but the screen shows nothing.
Is there any more she can do, or does she need to take it to a repair place?
Thanks so much for any help!

You need to check the screen cable but that involves taking it partly apart. If you feel confident in doing that, you can get the service manual in PDF form from HP.

Hello guys. So i have problems with my laptop. Bought it in jan 2011 and problems started about one year later. I could not use warranty, because i was far away from my place so i tryed to fix it myself, but no luck...
The problem is - BSOD x124 (hal.dll). This is VERY VERY random, it can BSOD 5 times in a 10 minute range (just launch up and 20seconds later BSOD...) or it can perfectly work for 6+ hours few days in a row.
You will notice, that i have 2 different memory brands (kingston - which was pre installed and samsung - which i bought few years later), but the problem was with pre installed stick (kingston) aswell... Tryed with Samsung stick only - same bsod.

Temps on GPU/CPU/HDD are fine, no overheating.

Any help will be great, thanks!

A:BSOD x124 on a laptop, lasts few years

Could you please check if any dump files are present here:


Code:
C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
If so, please upload the file in a zipped folder to a reputable file sharing site. I'll examine the Minidump(s).

Hello, I have bought this HP 15 Notebook (product no. N4G35PA#ACJ) from Flipkart.com on 18th march 2016. As per the invoice/purchse date (18-03-2016) and product description (1 year warranty) the warranty should end in 24 March 2016. But I can see (on 16-05-2016) in the HP support assistant window that it is showing "Warranty and services remaining for 8 months". It means I get only 10 months warranty on the product and not 12 months. I registered my product as soon as I received and started using it in March 2016. I donęt understand why it is showing like this. And what do I need to do to rectify the warranty information. Please suggest ASAP.
