Almost same story. A seal started leaking and it was just out of warranty. I paid.

As to the desktop, that's a financial decision of "repair or replace."

Why should I pay for to fix a computer that is defective? Isnt it their reponsibility if the mother board is defective to replace it?

Sorry, it's a G rated forum.

As to my Chevy, it was going to fail at that time and it's out of warranty. You know how this works.
