Re: Warranty extension/repair HP and Compaq laptops

Are these warranty repairs still in effect?  My Broadcom WLAN adapter on my dv6408nr just disappeared (VISTA Device Manager cannot locate the hardware nor the drivers).

Re: Warranty extension/repair HP and Compaq laptops

i think all of the models are now out of the 24month coverage period. Hp no longer offers hardware support for such models. Read here since you are now victim of the dreaded gpu failure,,

Re: Warranty extension/repair HP and Compaq laptops

LCD screen on my HP Pavilion dv6108nr Notebook only shows 1/2 of the screen to the left side, nothing on the right side at all.  Could it be a bad video cable, bad video chipset, or a bad LCD screen ?  Thanks

Re: Warranty extension/repair HP and Compaq laptops

Do u know where I can read more about this? the link is no longer there... just like other links that talk about the problem.. i just got off the phone with HP and told them I was looking at the page on their website that clearly stated there was a hardware issue.. of course she said my laptop was not under warranty and refused to look at the page or give me an email to where i could send her the link.. i came on my desktop after and went to the link.. IT'S GONE!!!!! i still have it on my ipod and i took pictures of it. but im sure they will come up with something to refute it. i am so frustrated!!!!

Re: Warranty extension/repair HP and Compaq laptops

The affected laptops were sold in 2007 and 2008. Normally they would have had a 12 month warranty which was extended to 24 months. There was also a class action lawsuit against nVidia and it provided some benefits to affected owners but also closed a couple years ago. This is all very old news and there is no more warranty or legal assistance available for the dv2000, dv6000 and dv9000 series.
