Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

At an auction sale I bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron1525 Core2 Duo T 7250 which has a three year Dell Warranty. I intend to give it to my Grandson in Australia.It has Intel 3945WLAN Mini-card EUR. Will the laptop work in Australia? Will the warranty operate in Australia? You do not have the Inspiron 1525 in the dropdown list. Is it obsolete?

No it not obsolete, it's a rather new machine to the market. Well I guess you could say as obsolete as anything else on the market, since most items are already considered obsolete just as soon as they hit the market. The laptop will work fine in Australia. As far as the warranty goes, I'm not sure as to it's coverage in Australia. As long as you register ownership through Dell's support site, he will definitely be able to get the tech support the warranty offers, but the hardware warranty is iffy. Dell is better than most, but their hardware warranties are still on a limited plan and like most they do give a little run around on getting it serviced, especially for major hardware issues. The Inspiron 1525 is a very good machine, and I wouldn't worry too much, if taken care of, this machine will most likely last for years with no major issues, long past the warranty anyway.

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.

Frannie 2 year old MacBook has had 3 failures which were repaired --under extended warrantry--How do I get a new MBook? Unhappy with Apple- Happy with Book.

If all three failures were related (e.g., all video, all FireWire, all hard drive) you should make a phone call to Apple HQ and ask to speak to "Customer Relations." Explain that you have had three related failures on the same machine and you consider it a lemon. If you are sufficiently polite, you have an extremely good chance of getting a new Mac in exchange. I speak not only from multiple incidents of hearsay, but from personal experience.

Cannot get past choose country screen. mouse moves but no response. this is second brand new mac that has failed right out of box. Tech support seems baffled. about to switch back to a pc.

It seems that you can claim for a DOA (dead on arrival). If you plug an external usb mouse to check if it's working or not, you will have a better idea of the problem, that seems hardware for me.
Apple products have a 1 year warranty in general. If bought in the applestore, you have to call them, and they should take care of you.
Hoping they will do their best to keep you as a mac user, and that this helps

It should still be under warranty at 6 months old.
If you attempt to repair yourself, you will void the warranty.
Talk to Dell before you do anything.
