Asus 2in1 15.6" TouchScreen Laptop Intel Core i7 8GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive Black Q551LN-BBI7T09 - Best Buy
So I bought this like 3 months ago from bestbuy and I paid like stupid amount for a warranty. I think like almost 400$ and I know bestbuy overcharges for all there stuff anyway so I was already pissed at myself.
Anyways last night I go turn it on. It working it, I noticed it's already plugged in and fully charged. So I leave my room shortly after for like 20 mins. Come back and its off. I go to turn it on and nothing. I check the outlet. It's working. I noticed no power LED lights come on when power is hooked up so obviously the motherboard died on me. I'm just so pissed man. So I call best buy. They said I have to send it in. But I can't just mail it to them.
BTw I'm in Qatar. It takes about 10-12 days to mail stuff back home. Fine. But BestBuy told me on the phone if it's a bad motherboard it can take 3 weeks to get it fixed. Then another 10 days to get it shipped back to me after my wife gets it back.
But, also I realized I ran into another embarrassing problem. I got some photos of my wife on my computer.
We all damn well the best buy people are going to browse through the laptop after its fixed and probably some crazy 4chan reddit that post everything to /b/
Also I got other videos my wife would probably get pissed amount. And turns out I just disabled the password login just 2 days ago because I got sick of typing it in. Worst timing!
So I have to take the hard drive out before I ship it. but guess what?!?
THEY HAVE TORX SCREWS. WTF
seriously, wtf is wrong with putting regular screws in it. Treating a laptop like its a freakin xbox. I just ordered a torx box set off amazon but it takes 10-12 days to get it.
Also I need to find a way to get the hard drive hooked up somewhere else. Here on base I can buy portable external harddrives.
Something like that. The smaller ones. So I'm assuming you can crack the case open and swap the hard drives. That way I can use my friends laptop to delete files on it. But I'm not sure if there swappable. Has anyone swap them?
I'm just really really pissed man. I wrote I bad review on bestbuy website while I was on fire but of course they are not going to post bad reviews on bestbuy website.
I know this is really just bad luck of draw.
If I can't swap external portable hard drives. Let me know because ill order something on amazon to let me hook it up on USB .
