Dell / Geek Squad / inspiron 1525 notebook
was given a gift of a brand new dell inspiron 1525 from best. right out of the box it crashes to the blue screen. second boot seemed to go just fine then it crashed again.I ran the diagnostic tools several times and it found know errors. however the research i did on the net from the error codes told me it was either bad RAM or a bad mother board. so i call dell for tech support after "Bob" who i could hardly understand and had to ask him to repeat himself becasue his english was poor finally told me that i would have to take it to best buy. They told me to take it over to the Geek squad in the store. I told them all that i had done and found. they kept it for a day or two and called me up and informed that it was a bad install of windows and would i like them to reload windows for $150.00. I asked why i should have to pay for something that was screwed up right out of the box, but the poor girl on the phone couldn't give me an answear. I told them not to bother as i was capable of reloading windows myself. got it home and downloaded a third party ram tester. found one of the chips that came with the computer was bad. computer started working a better for a day. then half the monitor died so i can only see the top of the screen. dell says its best buys problem, best buy says its geek squads problem which boils down to one thing. I dont have a chance at getting this thing fixed.
If you buy from Dell I hope it works.
If you bought it at Best Buy good luck.
If you have to go to geek squad you might as well write it off.
