My power supply to my HP laptop , a DV6 decided to give up on life and retired its self.
Normally I would just go and buy another charger, but since the computer was brought brand new last March , (from a shop in Norway - bit awkward to take back) . I decided to claim under warranty.
Got through to the techs, via call centre in India, explained the problem and three days later a new one turned up in post.
saved me paying a small fortune from pc world.
