Bought this laptop a year ago, and have had to replace the motherboard twice. Computer worked fine for the first 6 months except the date and time had to be reset constantly. One day we turned it on and got a message "time of day clock stopped". Dell replaced the motherboard and all was well for a few months. Then it happened again. Dell replaced the motherboard again. Then a month later and it happened again. Warranty is over, and it doesn't seem to make sense to pay to fix this. Any recourse with Dell? If we replace the laptop, which is probably our only feasible option, how do we get what's on the old computer's hard drive onto the new laptop (which will almost certainly not be the same model)? Thank you.
You can install the drive from the faulty notebook in a 2.5" USB SATA case and attach it to a new system to copy your data - programs however would have to be reloaded from the original media.
If you repalce the system, consider seriously a 3-year minimum warranty on anything you buy.
