My father received this laptop in December 2010 from my brother. (his grandson may of actually bought it) at a Best Buy. I am pretty sure they even bought an extended warranty. The laptop is not working...

If you bought the extended warranty from Best Buy they should have the information saved, if you just give them the name of the person the warranty is under. They should have a database storing all their warranty information.

I recently purchased a samsung pn50C680 3d plasma tv from Best Buy. It was a display unit that was being discontinued. TV works great except that every now and then it resets itself to factory settings....

If this is doing this by itself, I'd return it right away - or if that option is not available; call for warranty service. Now.

Invariably, this will fail catastrophically the day AFTER the warranty expires. If it has been bought less than 30 days ago, you can buy a 3rd party warranty for less than the in-store warranty sells for through SquareTrade.

Good luck!

All Dell computers have information a Service Tag on the back of the unit (or bottom if it is a laptop). This Service Tag number can be entered into the Warranty Information Center on Dell's website to determine eligibility.
Here is the link to the Warranty section.
Dell should be able to help with the problem even if Best Buy cannot. Good Luck.

Wii is making me think ps3

if you had 2 year warranty at bestbuy your should have just brought it there for a new one, and even the refund for wii would not able you to get a PS3 they are unreasonably over priced and they're prices hardly go down at all, the reviews haven't been that great and alot of sony products (PS1, PS2, and PS3) breakdown like your wii if you are ditching your wii I would suggest a Xbox 360

Will not power up

hi the problem sounds like the unit has overheated this is common problem with ps3 i see alot of these problems all the time sometimes you can be lucky and just replace the power relay transformer inside the ps3 but most the time its the whole board that needs replacing.
The best thing to do is check your warranty and get it repaired this way as getting it repaired would cost as much as a new ps3 also its not a repair you can do yourself as you might need the software reinstalling as after they overheat it usually corrupts the data on it.
How old is the ps3 the only other option you have got is buy a damaged one off an auction site but buy one that lights up but dont come on then you might be able to make one out of the two.
I have been buying ps3 that dont work for next to nothing but i had to buy 8 or 9 before i could get one to work by swapping parts.
Let me know what you want to do check your warranty as this is common fault they might even repair it if warranty has run out it has been known if its common fault

Looking at PS3

Hi Rookie Buyer,


I am an Experianced Ebay Membr and have bought many Video Game Consoles from ebay. Now I also run a Video Game Console Service called the Playstation Clinic. The problems i have repaired so far on PS3 consoles have only been bad solder joints.  Now, not many peiople are sending their PS3 systems to aftermarket repair services. Sony is still good about servicing the PS3.  If you buy it from Ebay, you will not have a store receipt. And in turn the chance that Sony will honor the warranty, is very deminished.

I do not like buying from stores that cannot tell me details of what is wrong, your taking a big chance here.

Your best to get a Used PS3 on Ebay from a individual with high Feedback score percentage above 98%, and a count around 50 to 400. Also inside the USA. China does not package stuff very well. They ship fast, but they will send you a crytal glass in a paper bag and not even mark it fragile.
