Manufacturer warranty is typically 1 year limited parts. This means if a hardware, NOT software goes bad within 1 year of purchase date you can contact acer to get a RMA number and ship them the laptop for a part replacement. This does not cover accidental damage, ie you drop the laptop, split something on it or drop something on it.
Places like best buy will sell two types of extended warranties, and are typically 3 years. The cheaper will cover the same thing as the manufacturer but for 3 years. They also sell a more expensive warranty which will cover accidental damage as well. None of these warranties will cover acts of god, theft or software problems
These extended warranties will be the same thing if purchased from acer or any other computer retailer. Also sometimes they are longer periods of time like 5 years.

Well for starters, your device is still under the manufacturer warranty, so I would consider tapping that resource.
Based on what I know of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) The telltale sign of a cracked screen is the blotchy display. Usually cost more to replace the display than to get a new unit.
A craked screen is not normally covered under a manufacturer warranty unless it was damaged under normal use. (hard to prove)
You may have been charged for the cost of an extended warranty by best buy (they usually ask) If so, that would cover theft and user induced damage. Take your receipt back to best buy and see what your options are.
Samsung only makes TVs that last 2 years, mine also has the same problem. Throw it away and buy a cheaper disposable TV, despite all the hype Samsung is just another cheap and nasty manufacturer who uses its customers as product testers. Why do you think they keep changing model numbers every week ?
I would always go with an extended warrenty dell pc's usually don't use the best hardware and tend to die in the 2-3 year range. The only reason I would say don't get it is if you are just going to go out and get a new if that one dies anyways.
If you "accidently" can repair this laptop,
then you get a reasonable good computer. you will find the price for your RAMhere: you will find the price for your HDDhere: you will find the price for your HDD caddyhere: -> the rest is up to you
If you are pretty sure the hard drive is faulty I would use the warranties and have it replaced.
Did you try running chkdsk with the /r switch?
Go to Start, Run, type cmd and hit OK. When the dos screen opens type chkdsk /r (note the space between the k and the /). It will probably say it cannot do it until the next boot. Enter y for yes. When your PC restarts chkdsk should go through 5 stages and display a summary of what was found and what it did when it finishes.
It depends on the warranty you purchased. Most basic warranties do not cover accidental damage, such as the damage your laptop sustained. Your best bet is to contact Gateway directly - they will be able to determine your warranty coverage. (Or if you purchased through a store like Best Buy, take it to them.) If you do not have ADP, you would have to pay for the repairs out of pocket.
A noise could be created by something getting down into the motor-pump assembly piece of glass, piece of bone, wire tie anything really. If this is the case and you can remove it before it causes further damage problem solved. At ten years old the problem may be the motor and or pump one thing to consider before putting money into it is disheashers average 7-10 years these days. Good Luck.
