Several months ago my Spectre stopped charging. I returned it for repair under warranty. It was returned promptly and seemed to be working fine. I did not use it much as I was between semesters. Now, after using it for one week for class it has stopped charging again, but it is no longer under warranty. What are my options?
I have gone through your Post and I understand your concerns
