I purchased an HP computer system with 22' screen from Sam's in March 2008 for $1350. I also bought the one year extended warranty. Just about exactly 1 year after purchase the computer ceased connecting to the internet. I called and was told the service person would make an appointment 48 hours after they faxed the order over to them. The repair person did call and said it would be a week for the part to be ordered. A week later, I was told that the person had gone to a funeral for a week. When he finally came two weeks later, it slipped out that he was actually on vacation. He replaced the motherboard, which didn't fix the problem and he said he thought it was the cable company. The cable people came out, no charge within 2 days, checked everything and set up my husband's laptop for him. My next move was to Microsoft, wherein I developed a 'close, personal relationship' with some guy in India over about 10 hours on the phone. After this, I had my entire computer wiped out and was not even able to reinstall the operating system. I again called the service company and they decided that I should ship the computer to Florida where the people there would either fix it or send me a check. I shipped off the computer and a couple of weeks later it was returned, after they replaced the hard drive and reconfigured the motherboard. At this point, the monitor failed and the tower, after initially connecting to the internet, again stopped this function. When I called AGAIN, I asked to speak with a supervisor. I was put on hold several times for extended periods and was told that someone would call me back. A day later they did, and after I angrily said that I was through fiddling around, and I wanted my money back, I was told to my amazement that it was out of their hands and the company in Florida had the final call and that if they decided to repair it 10 times, they would and would not refund my money. I said that I was going to call the Attorney General and the manager said that he would have a repair person come out to my home and fix both the tower and the monitor. He said that it would take two days for the work order to reach the local company (back to the original company that replaced the motherboard). After 3 days I called back, got the runaround and was finally told that they were ordering parts and would call me to schedule an in- home appointment. I am still waiting for the appointment to be made. During this time--I made the first call 2/28, my husband has been out of work, trying to register weekly for unemployment and I have not had the use of my computer. We are now moving into the 3rd month of this nonsense. I am absolutely at my wits end. This is absolutely unacceptable. Had I known that the so-called 'service agreement' meant that I was going to go through this amount of baloney I would never have bought it. At this point, I will never buy another computer from Sam's club, nor will I ever buy another PC. I am absolutely out of patience and furious!
