hiya here the problem i sent in my vaio to pc richards like 6 times already the stupid thing keeps rebooting , and a whole bunch of other problems i dont care to explain , i've got a 3 year warrant ( extended ) and the thing is if they cant repair the laptop they will refund or give me exchange of equal value.
Note: no water damage , no physical damage that is evident

any ideas ? i know it sound silly that some one is trying to destroy their laptop but its cutting into my work time as well as school

What's going on? If your laptop is broken then surely they will fix it? And if they can't you'll get a new one? I'm not sure I follow - do you want to irreparably damage your laptop so they give you a new one?

You used paint thinner on a laptop?

Good job. That probably just voided the warantee even if you can find the original serial number. They print the numbers on the case to ID them for warantee purposes.

There may or may not be one stored on the HD, probably not.

There is a backup copy of the serial on the original box and on the manual / warantee paper work you threw away when you threw away the box.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
