Brother has a 4 year old Acer 5520 that's recently lost the plot.
A quick google shows it's a common problem and ironically one that is essentially the same as the PS3 yellow light of death problem. DIY fix is the 'reflow' heat gun approach to fix any dry joints within the GPU. That's pretty hands on....
The CGA is not limited by manufacturers' warranties. It says goods must work properly for a reasonable length of time....
So the question is, do you guys think 4 years is a reasonable length of time for a laptop to work?
I'm not sure on this. I mean I think it will be out of date after 2 years, but that's almost a side issue. It should actually work longer than I would have thought, components like batteries aside.
What are your thoughts please?
