More feedback from SAGERHey guys,
Add me to the list. I've done all the necessary cleaning and the artifacting is even worse. I got a call back from "Jerry" at Sager Tech and he gave me the usual workaround about "you can't trust what you read on some forum, blah, blah, blah." I tried to state that actually this forum provides extremely good word of mouth about SAGER notebooks and that a great many people are well informed about their product but he didn't seemed to impressed.
Today I got the following message from David Liu:
Dear Mr. Smith,
Like you said some people have the games issue like yours, just a very small percentage have this defect, compare total units we sold, we will try give you discount for this out of warranty service. Please write the RMA# on the outside the package and include a note inside the package for your return shipping street address, phone no#, email address( if your notebook is the only way you can receive the email, please let me know ), detail problems that need to be fix, and the windows PASSWORD if the hard disk is included, and back up the important data if the hard disk still working,
in case is software or hard disk drive related problem, then the OS might need fresh install, and ship back to:
SAGER MIDERN COMPUTER
18005 CORTNEY CT.
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA. 91748
For some reason there's a bit of confusion about how a 3-year warrenty expires in less than one year so I'll have to yell at someone about that (oh joy).
