Many feel India is a place of rope tricks and snake charmers; people filled with superstitions and what not tantric mania. Well, for once, I guess I forgot to consult my astrologist before buying my forsaken Inspiron an year ago. To top it, I committed another mistake, I took only 1 year warrenty cover expecting that all regular cuts and burns of the laptop would be fixed by then.
Lets have a look at the last year’s roster of fixes done on the laptop and then read the newest of them bugs!
Processor replaced (oh yes! even this happened)
RAM Replaced (because they couldnt figure out that the problem was with the processor)
DVD Drive Replaced (3 months ago, and the problem is back in this one too)
Power Adapter and cable (conked off due to voltage fluctations
The current issue is simple; the machine refuses to boot up most of the days. I try not to shut it down at all because I don’t know whether it would boot at all! As it used to get stuck up at the CMOS test I guessed it might be the CMOS battery but even after replacing that it doesn’t work! I was forced to renew my warrenty(which I otherwise didn’t plan to), because I feel the worse.
Lets see, the motherboard hasn’t been replaced yet isn’t it?
