Back in Feb. of 2001 I bought this PC i'm using now.
It's an HP that I bought from Best Buy. It is a Best Buy configuration "oem i guess"? So within the basic one year warranty I would have to go
through the store for any problems, since it's their configuration (not factory).
Ironically, about one month after the one year warranty ran out, my monitor went dimmer. It was noticably darker than it was, and it happened
abrubptly. Not gradual at all!
Now after all this time I'm use to the darkened monitor and cant tell if its still dimmer than it was or not. (It had nothing to do with contrast or
I know I can pay for a new warranty with HP (even now) for the price of a cheap monitor.
ultimatly my questions are:
If i go out and just buy a monitor, of any kind, in most cases or so i've heard, they'll come with a 3 year warranty.
So... should'nt the monitor that came with my PC have the 3 year, or is that only for "separate monitor only" purchases?
I'd like to get HP or best buy to replace this monitor somehow, even though its a few years later. I still have reciepts and all!!
can anyone suggest anything
