BASIC SERVICE PLAN
The Basic Service Plan combines features of your Limited Hardware Warranty* with In-Home Service After Remote Diagnosis.
24/7 Phone Technical Support Service
Your time is valuable, so our remote diagnosis professionals are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including regularly observed holidays.
Dell developed Dell Connect to improve your remote diagnosis experience. It is a simple online access tool that allows a remote diagnosis professional to securely access your computer through your internet connection, diagnose your problem and repair it. All under your supervision. So you decide what we see, where we go and what we do. It’s like we’re right there with you but we’re not.
In-Home Service after Remote Diagnosis
If your System's issue is covered by Dell's Limited Hardware Warranty* and that issue is not resolved remotely, this service allows you to have a technician and/or part dispatched, if necessary, usually in 1 or 2 business days following Remote Diagnosis. During Remote Diagnosis, you may be asked to access the inside of your system (where safe to do so) or to participate in troubleshooting until a cause can be isolated.
All Dell portable computer batteries come with a 1-year limited hardware warranty*. Increasing the number of years of your Dell service plan does not extend your battery limited hardware warranty beyond the initial year. Replacement batteries are available for purchase at www.dell.com/battery.
Hardware Coverage VS. Software, Networking, How-To & Etc. Coverage
Dell Service Plans protect your computer purchase from hardware problems. All Dell Service Plans (Basic, Advanced, and Premium) available in the US include hardware coverage by Dell’s manufacturer limited hardware warranty, service and support coverage for the term indicated on your invoice (which was selected by you at the point of purchase) (1-year, 2-year, 3-year, or 4-year).
