- Dell Warranty. Dell computers come with a
standard 3-year Next Business Day On-Site Service warranty.
Please do not remove hardware from Dell computers or add foreign
components within the warranty period since this invalidates the
warranty. For repairs, please fill out the Hardware
Vendor Repair request (which notifies the Help Desk to
contact SLAC's Dell warranty repair).
To local administrators:
- Please arrange the purchase with Teri Church.
- Complete a Purchase
Requisition and submit it to Operator firstname.lastname@example.org
On the Purchase Requisition, please include:
-- the unique Tag Number that Dell uses
to track the history of the computer (this is the number listed under the Property
Control Database as the serial number, this is not the PC#)
-- the department charge number
-- the delivery requirements. Standard shipping is 3-4 days, expedited
can be overnight or 2 days.
- At the same time, fill out a HelpTrack
request so that the Dell on-site warranty service can do the upgrade
when the hardware is delivered.
Memory Upgrade for
Dell OptiPlex GX1, purchase:
DIMM, w/ECC, SDRAM, PC100
The OptiPlex GX1 supports both ECC and non-ECC SDRAM.
However, all of the models SLAC has purchased
should contain ECC SDRAM. ECC and
non-ECC memory should not be mixed. PC100 is
sufficient, as the 440BX chipset in the GX1 doesn't support a 133MHz system bus.
