My daughter dropped her Dell laptop. 6 months later it stops working, no power, nothing. Tried a hard reset, all the recommended tests, then sent for repair through Costco (guess the extended warranty does not apply). The computer is $550 and they want to charge $799 for repair.
Anyway, I believe it is the mainboard which I can have swapped out locally by my IT tech, but cannot find a new board. Everything I find is refurbished, yet the computer is only 2 model years old. Can the refurbished boards be trusted?
If a new board is $400, then I guess it is a new computer and a good spanking. haha
