Warranty Computer Repairs

Please note that Manufacturer warranties cover faults in original hardware only. Customer initiated hardware additions and software issues are not covered by manufacturer warranties. A part must be diagnosed as defective and be replaced by an authorized technician in order for it to be covered under a manufacturer warranty. Having work done by a non-authorized technician will void your warranty.

Sometimes, it can be hard to determine whether a problem is due to software or hardware. When the outcome turns out to be software, then the time spent on both the diagnoses and repair is chargeable time.

Warranty service is available for products from the following manufacturers:

• IBM/Lenovo – all corporate laptops and desktops
• Apple- desktops and laptops (excludes iOS products- iPods, iPhones, iPads)
• Toshiba - all laptops

*Some restrictions apply on servers. Please contact ICT Tech Services to discuss your particular installation. If help cannot be provided, you will be pointed in the right direction.
Please note: Warranty hard drive replacements do not include the labour to install/replace Operating Systems. It is extremely important that the customer supplies the Operating System Software and Applications CDs.

Issues not covered under warranty include but are not limited to:

• Data Recovery
• Data Backup
• Data Transfer
• Operating System Reinstalls
• Corrupted Files
• Any End User Damage to the equipment such as drops, spills, excessive tension on adapters

Manufactures offer a limited warranty with the purchase of their equipment. The length of standard consumer warranties can vary from 90 days to three years. Some manufacturers offer extended warranties at additional cost. Additional warranty can sometimes be purchased even after the original sale is complete. It is important for consumers to be aware of the content of the warranty and what it entitles.
Members of the University community who suspect a software problem are encouraged to check with the ICT Help Desk or their local IT support staff about the nature of the problem before bringing their equipment to ICT Tech Services. Fees may still apply if you contact the Help Desk depending on the level of service the request requires.
