Windows 10: Windows 10 killed my dell xps 2710
Still would like to know if you got your dell working yet. I have the Dell XPS2710 as well and having same or very similar problem. Hoping to get this fixed. Thank you!
computer is kaput
To all those asking if i got it fixed i haven't i still have yet to give the one person on here a chance to try at it but ive had two computer people look over it now and both have said my mother board is done im not sure what the one person did but the second i was there he opened it up and couldnt even get the mother board to throw out an error code he checked all the connections replaced the cmos battery he said he could put a fresh install of windows 8 but if theres no error codes coming from the mother board then it false hope to think that that will do anything so pretty much i have a giant paper weight or a really loud hdmi monitor ( as the model of computer they have an issue when your on hdmi that the volume will not adjust so on hdmi is stuck at 50 volume level no matter what... yay
refer to my updated post unfortunately its not good news if i were you i would stick to the windows version the computer came with
updated today... sorry its not good news reply #42
I like paper weights ,send it to me .ill pay the shipping ,and if I can fix it I will send it back to you ..you pay return shipping .I'm only on the other side of Canada .
How long after you upgraded to windows 10 did it fail, rightaway or after updates or few months later?
If you can get a technician to prove that the operating system caused your motherboard to fail. You might be able to do legal action. I am not a lawyer. I do not know anything about Canadian laws or regulations. I would check with a lawyer.
Thinking you look long for a lawyer to take
that job,,,i to would like to meet the tech who could prove it happened
Agreed, unless there were a rash of people who could prove an OS destroyed hardware.
Does Canada have something similar to what U.S. calls small claims court? Doesn't Canada have consumer or merchantability law? Does Canada have a consumer complaint division or divisions? Here in the U.S. we have state Attorney Generals, some states added a consumer protection agency division. Then we have the Federal Trade Commission which also has a consumer complaint division. Then we also have the BBB which can be of help sometimes.
It is kind of ashamed, he is out $3,000 dollars for just a paperweight.
yeah,i think we have all those options, ,good luck.
To the OP-
I have a 2 year old acer micro tower, giving to me by 2 so called tech guys[that what it says on the company's business card's] who work at a local computer store ,,they told the owner it was a dead harddrive and had motherboard issues ,they sold the owner a new one ,it took me 20 min or less to get it to boot to media and install win10 on a new ssd drive ,I now use it as one of my main computer ..issue was lack of uefi bios knowledge
moral of the story ,not all people being paid to fix computer know what they are doing ,,
