|I have the same computer with the same problem. Mine went out end of the year 2011. I purchased the extended warranty and spent $100.00 to send to Gateway/Acer to fix but they returned it unrepaired saying because I put boric acid (I live in NYC where roaches abide) inside the computer this voided my warranty.|
I think a class action suit should be started 'cause apparently me putting boric acid inside the computer wasn't the problem, furthermore once I opened it I saw NO boric acid so it wasn't so much as to cause a concern, these computers are crap -- just google to find others with the exact same problem. These people just didn't want to either repair or replace a computer they know is faulty in the first place.
