Well, some of you may or may not know about the drama last year with my wonderful toshiba laptop so I will fill you in.
I sent it in for warranty work because the lcd was whacky, and the fan was toast. About a month in i was wondering what the hell was going on with my laptop so I called them and found out oh well apparently my motherboard was broken and i had to pay 600 dollars (nice of them to inform me instead of leaving it sitting there for a month).
The computer would no longer boot because the motherboard was broken (physically broken how the hell you do that I dont know) when I had returned it for warranty work I made sure to see the sales guys saw it booted for this very reason
3 months of fighting later I finally got the store i purchased it from to pay for the repairs because it was working when it left my hands. Finally i get my laptop back and the lcd had been fixed however the fan had not been replaced. Since then my fan has gotten to the point where it simply clicks everytime it comes on rendering my laptop useless.
Here is the wonderful thing about toshiba laptops, you cannot buy parts from any retail store in canada.
when you call toshiba they will kindly inform you that you can take it to one of their “quality authorized stealers” and have them work on it. No thanks I would rather not go 3 months without my laptop only to have it come back in even worse shape. The only alternative is buying the parts from this company:
Who apparently has one employee that doesnt answer their phone.
this leads me to my warning to other consumers out there NEVER EVER EVER buy a toshiba laptop.
I started calling this place at 8am it is now 9:20am I got the fan ordered and it should be here in 4-5 days. The cost of the fan is just nuts 50 bucks give or take a few this wonderful company cant give me an exact quote with shipping… I have this funny feeling my credit card is going to be abused.
