Gateway NX860X notebook

I currently just bought this note book from a good friend . He purchased it a bestbuy and had a warranty on it , but it ran out in 2006 . It has worked quite well for me and what i needed it for . I just dropped it on the living room floor last nite and it will turn on but goes to a completeley black blank screen , Do u have any suggestion on what could be the problem or how i could fix it , or if u think i should upgrade to another warranty then have a best buy store fix it ?.

If u could be help . I would really appreciate it , Thanx alot .

From Brandon.

Have an extended warranty on my acer lap top internet port burned out trying to get it fixed bought on nov.25th 2008 and have and extended warranty until 11/25 2011 how do i file claim

You need to find out who your warranty is covered through. Example if you purchased it at Best Buy, then contact Best Buy and they will give you the warranty group information or help you setup the claim. Or if you have your extended sales information that you should have received at the time of purchase, you can refer to that also.

I am going to buy a TOSHIBA Lap Top but I am

I work for a major computer manufacturer (NOT TOSHIBA) and here is an unbiased opinion. Toshibas and Sony's are the WORST OF THE WORST. They use shoddy materials and cheaper plastics in case and motherboards. I have several Toshiba's from friends in my basement that have had bad motherboards burn out, bad power supplies and bad fans. Sony is just the same with their products.. If you are wanting a low cost functional quality product look to Dell or HP. Both make good products with similar components. Depending on your budget you should look at BestBuy this week. They just took price cuts on Compaq (HP MADE) laptops and a CQ62 is now priced at $299. Which is good considering it ran 570 at christmas. Its a great laptop with capabilities for the average user that are GREAT. Dell has a similar laptop but its priced at $379. Dell has a good history of durability but lately their customer service has gone down as they focus on business customers more than home users. HP has good service satisfaction. You wont go wrong with either of these two brands based on your needs. If you are a GAMER then you will want better performance but the rules are the same for quality!!! By all means.. no bias.. stay away from Toshiba and Sony... If you must buy one of these models then get a LONG extendeed warranty and pray ....alot!! Other manufacturers like Acer, Asus, etc are Chinese made and those are a **** shoot... have about a 30% DOA rate out of the box. Sony Toshiba about 15% but have long term issues as described above. Dell and HP about 3% and best quality.

Lost serial # for a Gateway notebook Model MX 6425.

It may be difficult to get Gateway to honor the warranty with the sticker missing. The receipt from when you purchased the laptop may have the serial number on it. If you can find a friends battery and get the computer on for a few minutes, sometimes the serial can be found in the BIOS. Belarc Advisor also can sometimes bring up that information, but you would have to get into windows to do that. How did you find out about the extended warranty?

Key board missing keys and some buttons dont work, screen cracked

I don't know. I don't deal with Bestbuy much, they're a bit pricey for me. I would suggest pulling out your warrant info and getting in touch with Bestbuy. I do know that many times the local Bestbuy here will pass the buck on the warranty and want you to send it to the manufacturer. I seem to get alot of work due to this. Of course, Bestbuys will probably differ from area to area.

My lagtop is broken , i bought it last October. maybe something is wrong with the harddisk. i lost the receipt. can u BESTBUY repair it?

That's very vague. If you bought it at best buy, you shouldn't need a receipt for the warranty. They store it in the computer by your telephone number. Good luck!

It's odd that BestBuy did not send you're notebook back to HP for you but the BestBuy you are talking about is not in the USA.
The HP Pavilion DV2125NR. Bought December 2007 is still under warranty. Most laptops & desktops come with a one year warranty, unless you paied for an extended warranty. For the HP Pavilion DV2125NR, contact HP directly for a RMA. You will may have to pay for shipping to HP USA. Hp will ship back to you free. To contact HP.
You must first get a return material authorization number (RMA) by calling us at 1- (888) 999-4747. You can also call,
Customer Service

The notebook bought in December 2006 is not within warranty, (Unless you bought an extended service). As you mentioned.
I would not trust the BestBut in Venezuela. It seems they may have stated bad boards just to get ridd of you.
It is alway best to talk directly to HP/Compaq customer service before making any decision.

Hope you find this information helpful.

Extended warranties purchased

Greetings bvansiclen,

You can contact Consumer Relations at 1-888-Bestbuy™ and have them review your current active Performance Service Plans. Unfortunately you would not be able to look online for this information.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.
