I Really Dont Know What To Do Now !!!!
I currently own an Inspiron 5150, 3.06gHz, 64mb ATI Radeon, 512mb RAM, 40GB HD...
I bought this one in the US and had problems with it since then ( blue screens and stuff like that ) after a few months it started overheating and shutting down every time I tried to watch a movie, play games etc. My friend told me that it might be a Trojan Virus that making the laptop crazy ( the CPU use to work on %100 almost all the time ) and since I had a viruses problem I thought that was it so I bought an external HD, backed up my files and installed windows XP Pro all over again....
A week or so after that it happend again and since I had a problem with that new virus ( susser32 or something like that ) I thought that was it so I removed it but the system just didn't work properly !!! To make it short, I left the US and I'm now in the UK and I still have a warranty so I contacted Dell.co.uk for help, they told me that I will have to transfer the warranty, and then they told me that I can't do it because I had a 1 year limited warranty and that I will have to buy a new one here !!!! NOW, I asked how much it is going to cost me....guess what ?! they told me that I can't buy one now because my laptop doesn't work properly and that I will have to fix it first, also, they said that they think that the problem is a f**ked up motherboard and fan and that it will cost me 500 pound plus shipping and VAT
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hung up the phone and got a US supervisor on an online chat, he was very helpfull and my warranty was transfered to the UK in less than an hour !!! The worst thing was is the fact that the day I got the laptop ( which was my first laptop ever ) I called Dell to ask them if I can leave it on all the time ( with the battery in ) on AC Power and they told me that I can do it and that I don't have to worry...now they are blaiming me for it !!!!
Anyway, I'm thinking of selling it and getting a new one, I though of buying an Alienware Area 51m but then I read here that they are having a LOT of problems with it and that it takes a long time fixing it !!!!
If you guys have an idea of what I should do I will be more that happy to hear !!!
My experience with Dell wasn't so good, I have my laptop for less then 9 months and I already installed windows like 7 times and had a lot of problems with it...If I'm using the burner I can't do ANYTHING else untill it's done, if I'm watching a movie it's like I'm broadcasting it over the internet and it's very slow !!!! and if I'm playing games - It's overheating and shuts down !!!
HELP PLEASE !!!!!
