| I am from India . My system is an assembled one . I have the Serial Number of the Original CPU because it was printed in the Bill when I bought the P.C. Hope I have removed ijack's Confusion . |
Well , I agree that even for me , 15$ is not a huge amount by any means but my concern is that what if the technician has fooled me and replaces my Original Processor with some older one .(Although from somewhere on the Net , I found out that the "2.70 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+" was first released in October ,2007 .) So , my sense is that once I run Belarc Advisor on the repaired P.C. , and if it says that the Processor is "2.70 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+" , then obvoiusly , he couldn't have put a processor older than October , 2007 . (My Original Processor was manufactured in 2009 - That's what the technician told me . He said there is some website in which , when you type in the Serial No. of the Processor , it gives the Year of Manufacture ) .
I think what I will do is , when he calls me up & tells me that the new Processor has arrived & tells me to go to him with the rest of the system so he can install the Replaced Processor on the P.C. , I will first check the Serial Number of the new Processor (some one told me it is printed on the back of the Processor ) . If it is the same , then he is DEFINITELY fooling me . If not , I will tell him to type in the Serial No. of the Replaced Processor in the website that he was telling me , so that I can know it's year of manufacture !
