IBuyPower Laptops

People listen to CNet, buying a laptop from this company is cheap. But, if something happens there is nobody to help you. I haved spent a whole month trying to reach a customer service rep, and the email they just tell you to call customer service. Let me tell you about their tech support, not existent. So, if you are buying a laptop do your research and visit web sites like Cnet and other forums to get educated. My laptop is one year old and is one expenceive door stopper. My single hole plug power supply and the connector pin in the laptop power supply came loose not charging. Finally, after awhile just stopped charging.

Why not get it fixed?

In reply to: IBuyPower Laptops

Take it to a local computer repair shop. I don't know how much it costs to fix it but, it has to be cheaper than a new computer.

POV and then...

As the other posters suggested, you can have your laptop serviced by a 3rd party. Unfortunately, some sellers are only vendors and have no real repair centers and if so in this case probably ships to a independant outside service center itself. My guess and that's it, is your power port has a broken pcb solder or broken pcb on itself, and that won't qualify for a warranty repair or at least reduced cost as that's wear&tear unless broken within a short period. Google for laptop repair center and use your credit card for protection as well.
