Caller after running system cd's. Kept getting error message. Advised to run them again after shutting down and making sure the computer was cleaned out. Ran them again and called back. They had me order new system cde's from Hewlet Packard. I ordered the cd's and tried them and the same error came up so I called them again.

June 29

DHL picked it up today

July 5

Barrister received today

Called and talked to them a couple times and they say they have till the 19th of July to replace it. Talked to one person said they was going to rebuild mine. Called Rachel [protected] ext 452. She says no mine was being replaced not repaired. Also said they had until July 19th to replace.

July 18

I got a phone call from City Advantage who told me they received an email from Barrister stating it was a software issue and they were returning my computer to me unrepaired.

I told them of course it is software because with all they had replaced they made it software. It was stated to me they were not going to fix it and they was replacing it.

When I bought the warranty from Circuit City they claim if something happens and they can not fix it to my satisfaction they will replace it.

I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the Attorney Generals Office in Pa so far. I am not going to stop until I get some satisfaction from them or I die trying.
