I purchased a fourty inch sony tv at best buy on August 28, 2007, and like everyone else i also purchased a four year extended warranty. On Jnauary 23, 2008, I was transporting my tv to a friends house in preparations for the super bowl. Like an idiot I allowed them to put the tv in the trunk and when we reached to destination, I plugged in all the wires and turned on the power, the freaking panel had cracked during transport. I have been calling best buy and they keep saying they cant fix it because tv panels arent covered in their extended warranty. so im stuck in a very frustrating situation. When the technician came over to my home he immidiately diagnosed it as "physical damage" and waranty wont cover it. I guess my question is "How can I make best buy or sony pay for the repairs without having to personally come out of my own pockets to pay 1,500 dollars in repairs for a television that cost 2,000 dollars." Please I need help. Anything ideas or suggestions would be great. Thanks.

As an expensive lesson. We've all had them and some a great deal more than yours.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
