On 1/31/2010 I purchased an ASUS Eee-PC mini laptop computer and was exchanged for having hard-drive issue...
I have a Compaq Presario SR1222NX11/2004 that I purchased in 11/2004.
It was having a problem with it, it would not start-up.
I believed that motherboard was the problem so I purchased a new one from ascendtech ($49.98).
The motherboard that I was sent was physically defective (long story below).
Ultamatly I found that I had two problems, motherboard and power supply. Because of this it took me another $125 and about 60 days to track down the physical defect problem with the new motherboard.
ascendtech would not accept the motherboard back for replacement as it had been longer than 30 days.
I would never buy anything from this company and would strongly recommend looking elsewhere rather than buying from them.
Here is the "long story"
On December 16th I ordered a Motherboard from ascendtech.
ASUS PTGD1-LA SOCKET 775 MOTHERBOARD VIDEO SOUND LAN
The motherboard arrived while I was out of town for two weeks. Starting on January 3rd I spent over a month tearing my hair out, buying more replacement parts, waiting for them to arrive in the mail, and trying to fix my Compaq desktop PC.
My original problem was the computer would not start up. Sometimes after 3 or more power-ons, it would start-up. But eventually one day, after many, many tries, it would not start up at all. By this I mean it would do nothing.
After doing lots of research, and testing my power supply, which seemed to test ok, I believed it was my motherboard. Thus the regrettable purchase from ascendtech.
After replacing the motherboard it still would not start up. My PC would still do nothing.
I then delved further into my power supply, testing the voltages. Several were low and I ordered and replaced the power supply.
Good news, the PC would power-up. It seemed to run OK, but after 2-5 minutes the PC would lock-up. This happened every time I tried to use it. This was a new problem as I never had it lock-up before.
Next I ordered and installed a new hard drive, my PC would still hang.
I tried different CD and DVD drives, as well as cables (ones I had from an older PC) and the same problem occurred, my PC would still it would hang after 2-5 minutes.
I was eventually left with only one thing left to replace, the CPU. I ordered and waited for the new CPU. With the new CPU it would still lock-up.
I had now spent about $175 on replacement parts and was left with the lock-up problem.
How could this be? Everything was new, or replaced.
I decided to start putting back my old components, one item at a time, to see what would prevent the lock-up.
While removing the CPU, from the new motherboard (the one I purchased from "them") I happened to notice that several connecter pins were twisted and bent.
I put back in my old motherboard with the new CPU, new power supply and new hard drive. Now I’m back to the old problem where it might take 3-4 tries for the PC to power-up. So I’m now convinced that it is my old motherboard that was the original problem (along with the power supply). The new motherboard, that is not able to properly connect to all of the CPU contacts, was the cause of the lock-up.
I then requested a replacement for the Motherboard I purchased from "them".
I realize that it has been over 30 days since my purchase, but I hoped that they would take care of this problem and replace the bad motherboard.
They will not even respond to my emails.
I bought this Asus Laptop on December 19 - 2009 and now my optical drive stopped reading disc and the laptop is also lagging, Now i called the service center and they told me that they were going to make the proper arrangement to come pick it up or for me to drop it off and it's been like over 2 weeks of this and the laptop is still sitting here at home and I'm without it since. I keep calling and nothing is being done so why is this Company so ignorant towards it's customers???
Unbelievable! I should've stayed with HP as they gave me good services compare to ASUS Canada. This is the 1st & last one I ever buy from ASUS Canada. Lot's of regrets after paying $700.00 for an ASUS laptop that is not performing like other Brand name Laptops.
A very disapointed and frustrated Customer!
My son bought an ASUS laptop. During the warranty period the processor fan got noisy and the laptop was sent to service for repair. It took three weeks to be sent back (two was promised). After repair half of the existing RAM memory was missing. After checking it was found that the memory was badly reinstalled with force and this had defected the mother board. Now they want the laptop to be sent back (for another three weeks?) with no extra compensation of several calls, packing material and loss of laptop use.in phone they promised to replace hard disk with a bigger one as a compensation but later they "forgot" the promise. Now we have a clear statement from Finnish Consumer Centre and try to fix the case. Lessions learned: NEVER ASUS again
I've bought an N80VN 14.1"ASUS laptop. After less than a year (it has 24 month warranty) it started to misbehave. Delivered to a local authorized repair location on 2009. Nov. 06.
They replaced just about everything in it and then told me after a month (!) that it cannot be repaired. Then offered me instead of my broken 14" laptop a 17"brick.
Then routed me to the money back way (contrary the fact that I selected a new ASUS notebook of the same specifications and price from their current product line).
For the money back they need the missing parts, so I was asked to deliver the power supply (what, costs about $10 used)!?
At that time I was already not owning my laptop I payed for for about 2 months, which is about 10% of its lifetime, which is about $120 from my pocket. How much is that compared to the $10 power supply?
Today it's January 26, approaching 3 months from the failure. Now they are asking me for the hard drive ($50 brand new) in a separate request!!! Since then it's already in my new laptop because I gave up on them long ago, and to minimize my headaches I asked them to remove it when I left it for repairs.
They ripped me off my time... I spent a huge amount of my time writing mails and delivering stuff around. And they are asking for my $50 worth 320 Gb hard drive now...
This is the"gread ASUS warranty" you can read about online...
Do not buy from yorist! It's a big scam! I bought a small notebook from them and first they told me that the item has been sent by post and gave me a fake tracking number! And then after a week told me that they didn't received money from me and I waited for a whole month! They told me to do a cancellation so I will take my money back! Still it's a scam ppl! I did the cancellation but mr junshang li wasn't responding to the bank's messages! I paid also for cancellation fees together which is 50euros! I lost 192euros from the item I bought and lost 50euros for cancellation fees for nothing! Do not buy from yorist! I am a sad client and if there's any way to report them to the authorities I will do it!
Approximately 18 months ago whilst on holiday in Taiwan, I purchased in Taiwan a high end Asus laptop.
Everything worked well for 13 months and I was very pleased with the laptop. Then my motherboard died and I couldn't boot up and or even turn on the laptop.
I took the Asus laptop to the Asus service center in Metro Manila and they confirmed the motherboard needed to be replaced. They said they had to have a replacement motherboard shipped in from Taiwan which will take "2-4 weeks." That was 5 months ago.
Every time I call the Asus service centre (and that's every 3 weeks,) Asus Manila tells me that "we are still waiting for the motherboard" replacement from Taiwan. Maybe it will be on the next shipment?"
5 months for Asus in Taiwan to send a replacement motherboard and I am still waiting for a motherboard replacement? That is outrageous and NOT acceptable.
Whether or not I ever receive an actual replacement motherboard from Asus, I WILL NEVER, EVER, NEVER again purchase anything by Asus. NEVER!!!

I bought an Asus computer from Best Buy on 7/25/09. they installed Kapersky antivirus on the computer and it was good for 6mths. On Nov 19th my computer went crazy and it said I was infected with Trojans on all my files. The next day I took it to a computershop where I live as best buy is 50 miles from where I live. when I got it back they said ithat the Kapersky virus scan had broken and let all these virus and trojans into my computer. It could not be corrected tilthe program was removed with athird party removal tool. I feel I should be reimbursed the 74.88 it cost me as it was there fault. I have attempted to speak to the manager called Kelly for two weeks but she will not return my calls. I had gone to the store to get a refund but they said kelly was the only on who could do this. This is very poor customer service. I would like my money reimbursed asap Jessica Lacour 201 Driftwood Rd Carriere Ms. 601=7992937
I have a laptop (ASUS N90SV-X1) its maybe 4 moths old after a month it started haveing a screen problem that would quit by closing the lid. before long it wouldn't stop. It will go white and gray very very early. sometime right after you press power button. I finially gave in sent it home and Wfie called ASUS. they sent a fedex label. She asked to get a call if it didn't do it right away. Just because it would either be really bad and you would give up on it or it would work. All they did was run 3dmark and everest software on it and send it right back saying it passed. I was very willing to let them keep it as long as they wanted to fix it. they will not acknowledge that it does it. But newegg even has the screen problem in its reviews (now) that its getting out of control. Well now that they are blowing us off, My wife and I. I just want my money Newegg has my money so they are done with me because its passed 30 days so I guess its ASUS's turn.
STAY AWAY FROM ASUS, I heard not to buy thing from them and didn't listen but now I know!!!
I bought ASUS Essentio CS5110 since 2009-07-18 from Xujiahui, Shanghai with 4200 RMB.
At the first month i didn't spend time to use this computer because I have to go back to Thailand for 2 weeks and after came back to work in Shanghai, I found sometime computer just restart itself because the VGA Card's temperature is higher than 100 C that I figure out by install Software Hardware Monitor .
I call service center of Summit company where I bought this product from them. He sent junior engineer to fix this problem by replace a new VGA card. It's so funny that I have to told this guy how to open the Desktop's case. By the way after he replace the new one that it still not solved the problem.
Then he let me call to Asus Service Center. Another 2 days the Technician from Asus come to fix the same problem but it's still unsolving. Then he took my computer back to the service center. It's pass 2 weeks then I got the answer from them that they told me 'All of Asus Essentio CS5110 has the same problem with Highest temperature of VGA Card' and all inside staff know this problem.
After here this answered, I feel this problem should be responsible by ASUS designer because there do mistake. Then I have to contact to their customer service again because the service center is not take any action for me to solve or change to other model. Then I have to wait another month because service center said 'We have to send this case to some authorized person'.
Until now 2 months passed I got the final answered from them by 'Nothing' They let me use the old one and don't take any action to solve this product.
Now I try to inform this case to 'China Government Customer Complaint', It might be help or not help me but at least ASUS should take some responsibility for me because of their product is bad quality.
My contact email: [protected]@gmail.com
Hope somebody can help me.
My asus p320's touch screen crapped out within 2 months of purchase. The phone spent a month doing goodness knows what at the service centre, after which it came back scratched and with the touchscreen STILL not working.
If asus is not a bunch of inbred pedophiles with a fetish for #ing around, they would have repaired it within the entire month they spent scratching my phone.
Thus proves the point. They're garbage. If they can prove otherwise, I'll gladly withdraw this complaint and write them a glowing recommendation.
I filled the rma form I got answer in 48 h the said arrangmet has ben made and my laptop will be collected in 2 working days. That didn't happend so I called them and the said that my laptop was collected and they gived me tracking number [protected] thats for DPD. So im checking and there is some parcel on the way but not from me and not on my name. So I called them again the said same story so I told them im in Ireland and obviously, tracking number they give me is in UK and im definitly no Murphy. So it's taking month and today I found out that they won't give me adress and there is 50% chances that my laptop will be collected.
On March 20, 2009 ASUS RMA department received our desktop computer that we had sent back to them to be repaired because the computer just stopped working, it would not pull up Windows, the internet, the anti-virus program nothing was working. We were advised after 6 calls to the customer service department that the computer was repaired and sent back to us. Recevied computer on April 15, 2009 hooked it back up and to our surprise the computer was doing the same thing as went it left NOTHING. Computer was sent back to ASUS for them to again "Repair". With another 5-6 calls to customer service we were advised on April 30, 2009 that the computer was repaired and sent back to us. Recieved today May 4, 2009 and guess what!!! Still doing the same thing. After spending $1, 000.00 on this whole system I have come to the conclusion that this company is just a complete rip-off and trying to make a fast buck on the consumer. I have lodged a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and will send a complaint to Best Buy advising them of the manufacturers that they deal with.
My U6E has gone through multiple hard drives and motherboards. It has always been returned to me with Windows Vista Home, not the Vista Business that I originally purchased.
I have talked to many customer services representatives including Hai, Rodel Roque, Fred Hsu, Juan J. Guerrero, Patrick, Samantha. They all formally apologized for the inconvenience and say that a supervisor will talk to me, but I have never talked to a supervisor. I am also denied a manager when I ask for one.
The original purchase price was $1, 449.00 and I believe that this is a very high price to pay for such an inconvenience.
I have asked for a refund or replacement, but the customer service reps say that it depends on what the supervisor says, and yet I have yet to talk to a supervisor and when I ask to, I am again denied.
I'm sure by now they have paid more than the computer is worth for repairs and FeDex for my Notebook.

I bought an A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard several months ago, made by ASUS. I assembled my own system which seemed to work fine, until I attempted to upgrade to WindowsXP SP3. Doing so caused an endless loop of reboot crashes, which took a great deal of time to reverse and undo, and left me with SP2 (the older version of WindowsXP), and left me unable to upgrade without risking a lot a problems.
I researched this situation online, and discovered that the problem can be traced to my A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard.
Microsoft pointed out that this is an issue with the manufacturer, ASUS, and suggested I contact them. I sent ASUS an email requesting support. When my email was not replied to within 48 hours, I phoned ASUS tech support and eventually reached a technician who told me in no uncertain terms that this is not ASUS responsibility, that Microsoft should be the one supplying support since it was them who issued SP3, and that ASUS would therefore do nothing to assist me, or the thousands of others who bought this motherboard from ASUS!
As luck would have it, a day later, a reply came to the email I had sent out several days before. In that reply their tech department issued an extraordinarily convoluted recommendation, which required the complete dismantling and re-assembly of my computer. No explanation was given to indicate that the tech reps who replied in writing actually understood my question, because the recommendations seemed to have nothing to do with the failure to install SP3, and there was nothing to explain what was causing the problem, and how the procedures might help.
I sent a follow-up email, asking for clarification. My email was ignored.
I bought my motherboard from ASUS, because I thought they had a reputation for producing superior products, and good customer service. The service I received was utterly pathetic, and I cannot imagine why I, or anyone else, for that matter should patronize ASUS.
Anyone thinking about buying their motherboards from ASUS should consider my experience, and think twice or even three times before giving ASUS your money.
It is astonishing, that the phone-based tech support should tell me to go jump in the lake, then have that followed by a completely different reply by email, wherein, a recommendation to supposedly repair the problem is given . . . only to have that recommendation offer no explanation whatsoever as to the cause of the problem, and how the complete dis-assembly of the computer could possibly effect a repair. It is even more remarkable, that when a clarification is requested, the author of the convoluted email should ignore my request.
Beware of ASUS products!
