This computer was released in the year of 2003 and was nothing short of horrible! The ‘funny’ thing about this PC is it worked wonders for its first year of life. Most owners didn’t experience a single problem with the PC for the first year and then boom, the warranty ran out and so did the computers power. The issue with this laptop was universal. The internet was quickly filling up with posts from owners seeing if anyone had a solution for the sudden power outage with the PC.
The worst part of all of this was Dell’s lack of support. Apparently, the company refused to admit that the power portion of the computer was a failure. Dell continued to urge people to replace the motherboard on their computer and stated that this would fix the problem. After spending a ton of money on new motherboards, the problem still remained and customers was simply left with a lot of anger and a computer with a new motherboard and no power.
