My computer(laptop) has a hard drive problem. My warrenty expires 8/16/08. I purchased at Best Buy on 8/16/07. They indicated I need my credit card number. It will take 7-10 days which will be past the expiration date. What can I do to protect myself ?

If you really do have a hard drive problem, then take the ahrd drive out, and see who makes it. It should have something like a 3 year warrenty depending on manufacturer.

Call the company, and get it replaced directly from them. Leave bestbuy out of the equation.

It stopped running and kicks out GFI outlets/breakers. Will warrenty repair it? I do not have the recipe.If not I have a 400-500 gallon pond with a waterfall. What is the best replacement? And where?

Even without the receipt, if you know the purchases date and vendor you may be able to get warranty support.

  1. If you paid with a credit/debit card, you have proof of purchase on your bill (if you don't have the paper credit card bill, you should be able to download it at the card's online site).
  2. Many vendors can provide you with a copy receipt although they will almost certainly want to know the date and location of purchase and the method of payment.

    Your best bet is:
  • Call the vendor and ask whether they can provide a copy receipt - some will do this by email.
  • Call the manufacturer, inform them of: the model and serial number from the plate on the equipment; the date and place of purchase. Then explain how the problem arose with the equipment and get their advice on how to proceed. They may ask you to do some tests and report back. (Provided you are certain that the item is still under warranty, if the first representative tries to put you off, ask to speak to a supervisor.)
If you want further advice on this at Fixya, you can provide details here of where you purchased the item and how you paid for it (obviously without providing personal or financial information).

One tip: remember that if you purchased the equipment with a credit card, you almost certainly have a warranty extension benefit on the card - usually double the warranty period up to one year. Check with your credit card provider or look up the benefits booklet they provide when they issue a new card and on their website. If that applies, you have an additional step which is to check the warranty expiration date and then contact the credit card provider's warranty extension service who will advise how to make the claim.

If you want more information or advice on how to test, we'll need the make, model and serial number of the equipment and a brief description of the setup.

Hope this helps and let's hope you can do this through warranty so that you don't have to choose new equipment ;)

How do i attach it to my laptop

The best way, removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into acard reader. (Either you connected via USB or FireWire and won't run down yourcamera's batteries.) It will be faster than connecting the camera to thecomputer. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as aremovable drive. Now you can get copy paste facility. You can easily copypictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Let me know if you need more information Thanks

I have problem with my harddisk. I have it in external box, and when I turn it on it works just for cca 15 seconds and then it stops, meaning I can't access anything and windows is saying "not responding"...

It seems that the hard-drive is "dying", and that the "root" of the file-directory on the disk-drive is "corrupt".

Look online for a "File Scavenger" program -- it reads a disk-drive, sector-by-sector, hoping to "stitch-and-sew" together sectors into files, so that you can "recover" files, and copy them to your 'C:' drive.

Yes, it sucks that your warranty has expired.
Does your credit-card company "double" the warranty for items purchased on your credit-card?

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.
