Default Ferarri 3400 dead

Anyone who knows if there's a general reset button on the Acer Ferrari
3400LXi? Mine went dead after less tahn 3 weeks... :-(
It says nada at bootup, nothing shows on the screen, just the fan, CD
and disk spins for a while...

Regards,

/Thommy M.

If it's a new one I would return it immediately to Acer since you have at
least 1 year full guarantee.

Yeah, probably will... I've only had it for 3 weeks so I'm quite
disappointed. Newer had to send anything away before in my 20 years
of computer experience... At least not something of my private stuff.

Well Thommy sometimes **** happens. But it's good to know that Acer has a
good repair and aftersalesservice (at least for Europe).

I always had a paper on my office door saying "**** Happens"...
Now that I left my previous job (to start my own consulting) I took
that paper down, and bad luck hit me directly... ;-)

Well, we see how Acer will handle this. Talked to the support yesterday
and te guy there said that they will probably swap the motherboard.
Waiting for the papers to send it in with now...


I'll summarise what they do and the time it will take.

Cheers,

For ****s-n-giggles, if you have a digicam you should take a few close-up
shots of the laptop at various angles to document its condition before you
send it in.... i've heard horror stories of various repair depots sending
laptops back with cracks in cases, broken hinges, etc.... hopefully your
experience will be a-ok.

To late, the pickup guy was here just an hour after I called them...
That's promising...

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear....
Exactly the same thing happened to mine last week.....scary!
It was picked up this morning and I was told 10 days turn around
time.
Mine was 3 months old, hope it's not like the cars and need tuned and
serviced every time, after nipping down to Tesco!
:roll:
Will keep you posted on what happens to mine, please do the same with
yours

Cheers
Scurd
