Apologies if this is already answered elsewhere. My girlfriend managed to knock her lap top off the table and cracked the screen.
So essentially, does this invalidate the warranty? Its 7 months old, so I assume under the manufacturers regulations it would still be under warranty otherwise. Believe NEC Computers are the company concerned.
I doubt if it would invalidate the warranty for the other components. Claiming on any household insurance could result in an excess charge being made, which nowadays is usually £100.00.
If you paid by credit card or a computer finance agreement, then there could be accidental cover available within the terms and conditions. I know Barclaycard use to provide free accidental cover, plus a range of other free things. Sadly this no longer applies, because Barclaycard as removed these options, within the last year or so. Perhaps to many claims being made!.
Regarding a repair, I would contact the manufacturer to see if it would be viable. I think that it is a bit more than just changing a glass panel!.
Talk everybody re this be fore deciding on a course of action. Shop/finance co/manufacturer. Does the machine still work apart from the screen damage? I suspect it will cost however, unless you contrive to pass the buck - like getting someone to bump into you whilst you are carrying it and dropping it in from of them ;-) -No I did not mean it or did I ?
