Physical damages due to abuse or misuse is not covered by the warranty and neither is acts of God or terror that has caused damage to the computer.

Those covered are due to poor workmanship or any factory defects.

So, this means to say that any repair that needs to be done to rectify issue will be additional cost to you.

Thanks.

Trying to find out if I put a warranty on my netbook accidently stepped on it and cracked the screen


If your net book cover accidental warranty then you can replace your screen for free but if it not cover with accidental warranty then you know the answers.
In your case it is called mishandling and it does not come under any normal warranty.

There is a white line on my screen like a scratch but is clearly not on the surface. Is this cosmetic damage or should i return this under warranty?


if the line apeares to be part of the displayed image on the screen and typically would be only either horizontal or vertical then the screen has a deffect and it should be covered under warranty if still active. but examine carefully because sometime the internal of an LCD screen get cracked normally because of something that pushed againest it from the outside or againest the cover and if that what happend it would not be covered under warranty. best of luck

Toshiba, broken screen


If the screen is physically broken (cracked) it's usually NOT covered under the warranty.

You can check your coverage HERE.

Cracked HP laptop LCD


under warranty if it is a defect from manufacture or if you bought extended warranty from retailer, some policy's cover damage. Only covered if policy is still within time of purchase.

If it is not covered it will be cheaper to replace computer than repair.

You can search here for warranty from manufacture.

The laptop screen has a crack in it. Is that covered under the warranty?


Maybe, it depends on your warranty. Lets just say be very very careful in how you phrase how the screen got broken. Sometimes IF it's covered at all its subject to interpretation.

i.e. saying, my kid hit it with a hammer is probably not your best answer. See if you can find what type of service contract. If your computer's under 30 days old, consider sending it back

Warranty expire


Hi,

If your computer's warranty is expired, you can go ahead and purchase extended warranty for your computer by contacting HP Support.

Let me inform you that ongoing issues will not cover under this warranty.

The extended warranty will be updated within a month time.

Thanks and Regards,
Sharath

LCD screen


Probably not as a cracked display usually results from dropping or sitting something heavy on the unit.

If it just cracked under normal use, then this would be a defect and it should be covered under your warranty. The only sure way to know is to take it in and try your best to convince them that this is covered under your warranty.

FYI, the warranty is probably from the manufacturer, unless you got some extended warranty through Best Buy? Otherwise the stores responsibility varies from state to state.

Screen has cracked


The only way to see if the laptop is still under warranty is to contact Toshiba directly. They have a warranty information site online at: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_navShell.jsp?cf=su_wa_cent.html
