Don't ever buy anything from Gateway or MPC Corporation. I was never contacted that the company filed for Chapter 11. It says all warranties are affected. They filed for bankruptcy November 7th 2008. I have a 4 year warranty with 2 years left on it for a $2,500 laptop I purchased from Gateway through my University.
In July 2008 my speakers stopped working, and in August they promptly replaced them only to find out that it wasn't the speakers it was the motherboard. In October the motherboard was to be replaced under warranty, as my hard-drive had been about a year previous. The motherboard had been out of stock and the projected date to receive it was somewhere around Oct-Nov. I emailed many times and haven't been able to get a hold of them. This wasn't a big issue due to the fact that I had my laptop hooked up to external speakers. This past week my wireless went out on the laptop so I haven't been able to use it. My family is on a cruise
and I am home alone, thus allowing me to use our home computer. I have no way to access the company due to their phone numbers will not allow you to talk to anyone.
What would you do in this situation?
