Preferred Solution: HP Laptop warranty in India - running Linux OS from HDD

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.)

Hi, Yes and No. If your machine failed by Linux then this will void warranty. I always say warranty is a very GREY area. Regards.

Hi,
This is Manish Kumar. I bought Dell laptop from Olympia, WA last year. Now I am in India and I am facing some issues which I think are related to the hardware. Is there any way that I can transfer laptop warranty to India so that I can get it repaired at the Dell service center here in India?

Thanks in advance,
Manish

A:Laptop warranty transfer from USA to India

If you purchased the system with an onsite warranty (extra cost), yes - it can be transferred.  If you did not, you must upgrade to an onsite warranty at extra cost before it can be transferred.

Hi, I recently bought Dell Inspiron 15 3567 model in Dubai after getting the confirmation from Dell representative that International Warranty is available in India. I was informed to register online by changing the service tag to India.
Can you please help with the proper procedure to register my product so that I can claim warranty service in India

A:warranty claim in India for Laptop bought in Dubai

First -- there are no "Dell representatives" in Dubai -- all systems there are sold through resellers, not Dell.
You must:
1.  Have purchased (or now purchase) an onsite service plan - from Dell.  Basic depot warranty (and any Dubai reseller warranty) will not transfer.
2.  The system model you purchased MUST be sold in India.
3.  You must transfer your ownership of the system with Dell:
www.dell.com/.../warranty-and-ownership-transfer
In all likelihood you'll need to start with the reseller from whom you purchased.

Hi,

I'm setting up home media server. At least trying to...

My home network looks like this:
2 laptops (ubuntu/windows7) and a home server (ubuntuServer + Samba).

I've samba setup in a way to provide password-less access to share folders. I secured it by blocking all IPs but the range I use at home. (I can provide config details upon request).

With ubuntu laptop, I can connect to server without any issue. I just go to network tabs and can see windows WORKGROUP share smb share both pointing to same folder. So all works good. I can also mount external drive without issue, or create network drive. Connection never times out and it stays all good.

Now windows7 turned out to be a problem.

Problem#1 Using "map network drive" tool I cannot use hostname (server.local) I've to use IP. This means that every time server box is asigned a new IP by my dumb router I have to delete the drive and run wizard again. This is very annoying. Since IP doesn'ts tay static I cannot use WINS or map IP in hosts file. So I'm open to suggestions from your side.

Problem#2 Win7 disconnects network drive every 15 minutes (I think), on SAMBA I configured to stay live all the time. But windows has its own mind so it doesn't keep connection live. This results in, lateness when I try to go to my computer as OS tries to find and add drive on network. Every 2 times in 5 this procedure gives me error, host cannot be reached or something like this. So I've to delete folder and remap drive again, w... Read more

I want to buy a Dell laptop. When I compare the prices between India and the US, I found that it is more affordable to ship it from the US.
Is it  possible to ship the laptop from the US, if so what will be the Shipping charges?Will it be delivered safely?
Any valueable inputs deeply appreciated.
Thank you.

Unless you know someone in the US who can order for you and ship, no - Dell won't ship internationally.

I wanted to buy a new laptop and found out about Dell 5577 on the internet. I wanted to know more about it. So in the evening, I went to nearby official Dell Store in Swastik Plaza, Vasant Vihar, Thane(W).

Over there, I met Sandeep Kanade, who is the customer representative at the store. He showed me a Dell 5577 which was on display. I tried it out for a few minutes.

The laptop was good but the display looked somewhat off. The colors were not vibrant and picture quality looked dull.

Before going to the store, I had read on the internet that recent Dell laptops have TN displays with poor screen quality. An alternative to TN is IPS display which has much better display quality.

So while I was trying out the on-display Dell 5577 laptop, I asked Sandeep if this display is IPS or TN. To which he replied that its an IPS display. Then I asked the price of the laptop. He said its 85,000 Rs.

Then I asked, what if there is an issue with laptop in first few days? He said that if there is any issue with the laptop, within the first week of purchase, he will replace it.

I told him that I will come by next morning to do the payment.

I have a web script to test out. After much searching I tried to find a free web host just to test the script before further development. It requires cron, which a windows server does not support, from my understanding.
I looked into setting my PC as a linux server instead, so I downloaded VMware to set up Ubuntu and try a server from that to test script and share the development folder between windows and linux.

Is it possible though to run a server in VMware (or other virtual pc) to be able to connect in windows, need to test in both IE and firefox eventually.

I did try set-up ubuntu on VMware, though GNOME fails to start and the cursor becomes unresponsive to both the VMware and in windows, requiring a restart of the system.

Does ubuntu have server software to run cron? I was told that's all that's needed.

I don't want to dual boot, not on my current PC anyway, but is there anything I can do to work with linux within, or with windows?
I did get linux to work in MS virtual PC, so may try that again, was very slow though, suppose the extra RAM will make the difference however.


I could pay for hosting for cron to save time, but I just want to try it out, develop a little maybe, see if I find it interesting to work with, so paid hosting just does not seem worth it.
 

A:Running a linux server

Ubuntu does indeed have a server software. Go to http://www.ubuntu.com/products/WhatIsUbuntu/serveredition

It looks like it runs Cron, too.

You could start by just using a Live Linux CD. You also have the option of running Linux Inside Virtualization software like Virtual Box or Virtual PC.

You could also install Linux inside of Vista.

I want to install Windows XP Home Edition SP3 to an NTFS partition on my SSD.

A:Add XP to PC running Linux Mint with UEFI

I want to install Windows XP Home Edition SP3 to an NTFS partition on my SSD.

Cool. Please keep in mind that Windows XP will overwrite GRUB. As such, you will lose access to Linux Mint, and will need to re-install GRUB using a Linux Mint live-flashdrive (or live-DVD).
 
Maybe it does not like UEFI or ext4?

In Linux Mint type:
sudo parted -l
This will show information about your harddrive, most importantly what kind of partition table you're using. Based on your comment about UEFI, I would presume you're using a GPT table, which Windows XP doesn't support. Nore does Windows XP support UEFI.

A:G50-80 - Can i go with my laptop on Warranty?

Hi Emyy161 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You may review this article "Checking for International Warranty Service (IWS)" on how to proceed. 
Take time to review coverage and limitation :
" Lenovo makes no commitment that the same method of service purchased in the original country will be provided in the destination country. Service procedures vary by country, and some service and/or parts may not be available in all countries. Lenovo will use commercially reasonable efforts subject to support capabilities within the destination country to obtain parts. Some countries may have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service such as packaging, shipping and handling fees "
 
On my end, I tried using the model as some may not be marketed on some regions using the international warranty look up page.  Listed location would include UK and you can call in Lenovo UK 0333-777-3991 for details . 
 
Hope this help answer your query. 
Update us how things go.

I'm not sure what you want? You can try any distribution, there is no ideal one for your particular set up. Also the fact that you have Vista makes no difference either.

Try ubuntu. You can dual boot it with your other OS (Vista) and your graphics card should work ok. If you've no experience with Linux at all you should go and ask some questions on the official forums for the distribution that you eventually choose to go with.

I am using the HP 17-g121wm Notebook. The screen will randomly shut off 2-5 minutes after booting up, sometimes sooner. The computer will still be running, but the screen itself will be black (the backlight seems to remain on, though). No matter what buttons I press, nothing makes the screen come back on, so I have to push the power button to shut the laptop  off and back on. This problem does not occur when I boot into Windows, but when I boot into Linux (I have tried Ubuntu and Arch linux), this problem persists.  I have tried starting grub with the kernel parameter "nomodeset", but when I do this I am unable to enter a graphical environment because the amdgpu driver depends on Kernal Mode Set (KMS) without nomodeset.I would prefer to use Linux on this laptop for programming and development, preferably Arch Linux.

THE THING IS, I am so used to nortons (Yuk!) on windows, that Im all concerned that there is no icon anywhere to be found, telling me in its own sweet way that its monitoring things. Does this AVAST product scan incoming emails, internet downloads etc as they happen, or do I have to go and run a system scan manually all the time? Surely not.

I just know there&#314;l be an easy explanation. But if you are able to help me, please speak english. The minute I see a bunch of terminal commands or linux techno-babble, I fall off my chair and start dibbling uncontrollably on the carpet. Costing me a fortune in carpet cleaning spray.
