I hope your new PC includes some remedial spelling and grammar software. :shock:

Anyway, service depends on what model, what brand and what support contract you have. Repairing modern PCs usually means replacing parts at random until it works again, so on-site service is difficult if not impossible -- even "pro" support services for eg. Dell and HP only mean, at best, that your PC is collected and returned to your office after X days.

Plavt,

Don't look so puzzled. Welcome to service centers singapore style. (Kinda like they repair cars as well. Eventually they might get the right part. :roll: But don't count on it!

Op, you should have signed up for maxonline's deal instead. My pc also had problems 6 days after delivery and the technician came out and replaced the hard drive within 24 hours after calling them.

Also, maxonline is somewhat less affected than singnet from the earthquake in Taiwan. My wife's workplace which uses singnet can't get online at the moment.
