Gateway Complaint - After Reading Other Reviews, I Feel "Lucky"
I was feeling frustrated because my system is a little less than 2 years old and is beginning to have little hardware "glitches" - power light isn't coming one, screws are breaking off, labelflash device and memory card reader won't stay closed, etc.
My gripe, and someday I may find it amusing, is that I am in the process of relocating from Hawaii to the US mainland and I wanted to sell my CPU for about $200.00 and now these glitches are showing up. If I get problems repaired, I will be paying at least $150.00+ parts, so if I was lucky enough to get $200, I'd be just about breaking even. Now I'm wondering if I should try to just sell the working parts.
I really liked my Gateway, with the exception of when I go to clean inside unit, I have a hard time getting side panels back in place, but function is great.
I didn't buy extended warranty which, from other reviews I've read, I'm glad of, but attempting to get any $$ out of this thing is going to be a problem, I can see. When I get to my new location, I think I'll look into learning how to "build" a system so I'm more familiar with CPU parts.
Thanks for listening to my gripe.
