  1. hi all. i have a ps3 super slim 12gb. thanks to the lego dimensions game, i need more memory. not confident in upgrading it myself, have watched a few videos. is there anyone out there that may help and what would the cost be. thanks
  2. the person at the store is rude and arrogant, inconsistant with his assessments (see link to picture in a previous post). the customer service commnication is terrible, although some individuals are helpful at the time and i have thanked them for what the have been able to do. my temper is not a problem, right now do not want to see that store. i may have raised my voice but have immeiately apologised to the person i was talking to. frankly DSG dont have a good reputation, after careful viewing on the net last night, there are more negatives than positives, a lot also statg how rude their staff are.
  3. someone is going to colect it for me, as i dare not go in to the shop in case i donsomething stupid. once back here, i'll post photos
  4. doesnt excuse poor service, i should not have to chase my complaint which was not dealt with and the terrible way they treat you. that reply from Knowhow was deffinately a PR exercise as they dont wan to appear as 'bad'. i came on here to tell my story day by day since this ordeal began, and they just want to say 'sorry' but not want o deal with the problem. every where you look, currys is not he place to go (see link below) http://www.trustpilot.co.uk/review/www.pcworld.co.uk
  5. they sent photos on 10th, since then they have given me the run around and decided today that it 'appears' damaged despite my continuous protests. the store still have my laptop which someone is oing o collect as oing down to the store is not a goo idea.
  6. its nice to hear from reasonable people, the last few weeks we have just felt like like we are in the wrong. its nice to know that we are no alone and probably wont be the last
  7. i tried to state that we have done nothing to it but basically me and my wife are being called 'liars'. the offer of being sent to the labs is only 'free' if it is found to be a fault, me and my wife will incur a charge if they deem it to be damage. it seems that every forum i have been on, currys serms to be the place to avoid, wish i had read tem first beore going to that store. i love it ow they just offer apologies but don't believe you when you state how their staff are with you or the fact that they have dragged this out for so long and have to be chased. love it how its written down and the PR gurus reply almost instantly! ---------- Post added 23-04-2013 at 18:06 ---------- "][/url] this is the email sent by an instore technician stating there was no visual damage
  8. i have no representation or know how to go about it or the money, that is what all this is about and currys just want you to spend more. just read another thread with regards to currys/pc world and it looks similar to my problem, they love their customers don't they?
  9. currys/pc world will not help, see my thread for the trouble i've been through with no result at all http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1159493 ---------- Post added 23-04-2013 at 21:58 ---------- as stated anove, i am having same problems. on another forum i was given the CEO's email, write to them as i am going to encourage anyone who has the similar prolems [Removed - see edit reason below]
  10. they now state that there are marks on the screen despite me having an email from one of the technicians stating otherwise. it doesn't matter what you quote, you get nowhere. all they are bothered about is money which they want you to pay out
  11. On 28/03/13, I went to a Currys outlet in Sheffield at Heeley and I spent some time in the store talking with the sales assistant to find the best laptop for my wife who is disabled and is her main form of entertainment and communication. That day I purchased a laptop - a SAMSUNG NP3530EC, on a price plan over 10 months (£51). This laptop was the best gift I bought my wife, she was very grateful and appreciate. She treasured this item, looked after it well and when not in use, it was stored safely away in a cupboard. On 03/04/13, the laptop appeared different when we switched it on. A portion of the screen was not showing properly and appeared to have a ‘leaf’ on the left hand side. Thinking this was a system error, I contacted Microsoft that same day through a live chat. During the chat, I sent a photograph from my Ipad to the technician who then phoned me to say that this was a physical fault. The following day, after work, I went back to the Currys store to show them my problem. I spoke with a Someone who stated that it appears as if the computer was damaged. I explained to the person that the laptop has not been damaged and was properly looked after by my wife, stored safely away in a cupboard. This person was very unhelpful, stating that I would have to pay a repair fee of £50. I stated that I should not have to foot the bill as I know how it has been looked after. He also stated that I should have got the insurance cover. As they would not repair it, I then asked for a replacement or a refund, to which he and his Manager (who I asked for) declined stating that I had damaged the product and this, would not be possible. I also stated that I would contact Trading Standards with regards to the situation and They stated that they would agree with him and his assessment. I then left the store with the laptop and went home. I then phoned Currys Customer Service department. I retold my story to them and that I wanted to put in a On the 10/04/13 (6 days later), I had no response from Currys so I called them to find out what had happened. Upon speaking to that person, I found out that my complaint had not been looked at. I voiced my frustration and asked for something to be done as this was poor service. The advisor spoke to the store and it was arranged that I take my laptop to the store and that they would take pictures of the machine (also keeping it in store with them) and send an e-mail to Samsung. I have a paper copy of this e-mail which I requested. The e-mail stated that there is no visible damage to any area of the computer and I will attach a scan of this for you to see. I was told that Samsung could take up to 48 hours to respond. On 12/04/13, I phoned Currys whilst on a break from work. I stated to them that 48 hours has almost passed and I would like to know what is going on. My wife then received a phone call (within 10 minutes of my initial call) from the store. He stated to my wife that Samsung have just got back to him and that they had seen the photos and they agree with him that there is damage to it (contradictory to the e-mail he had sent on 10/04/13) and they would not be prepared say that this was a fault. My wife found him to be arrogant in his manner and not very understanding. My wife then phoned Customer Services and spoke with and voiced her frustration at the whole situation. He stated to my wife that the store should have at least, offered to have it sent to Samsung to be looked at and waver the repair fee if they found it to be a fault. He then stated he would be the direct contact and would be the liaison between us and the store. Customer services contacted my wife again and informed her that the store had told him that Samsung have seen the machine. My wife stated to that all they have seen are photos. Upon my return home, my wife then received a call from the store (who was not supposed to contact us). He stated to my wife that Samsung are quite happy with the situation and they do not want to see the laptop personally and that is it. My wife found his tone to be sarcastic and seemed overly happy to be giving us the information. At this point, I was infuriated. I then phoned customer services, who had just received the same news from the store, I told him that he had just phoned and how he spoke to my wife and how she was affected by the situation (including their manner). They responded that he should not have phoned the house. Customer services stated that he would bring this situation to the attention of his managers. As this was just before closing time, he informed me it would be early the following week before we hear anything. By 16/04/13, I did not hear any news, so again I contacted Customer Services and left a message for them to contact me. I repeated this on 17/03/13 with no response and then 18/03/13. I eventually got a call to inform me that I would need a third party to look at the laptop and get an assessment from them. I informed them that this was not possible (due to money constraints) and that I personally should not have to do this. He offered me the other alternative of having the laptop sent to Samsung but I would have to pay the courier fee. I stated to that this was not an option. I also stated that I am ready to contact Trading Standards (as I held off so I could deal with Currys directly) to which he advised me to phone instead of writing, he also added that he would speak with Samsung and try to help the best he could. I phone my local Trading Standards – the advice line and they informed me to quote the Sales of Goods Act 1979 and write a letter of complaint directly to Currys (send it by recorded delivery). I then phoned again and informed him of the advice they gave me. Customer services had spoken with Samsung and that they have offered that the laptop be sent to them and they would inspect the machine, wavering the cost of courier and repair if they found the laptop to be faulty and not damaged. However They said that I had to go to the store and set this up, I said that this was not a good idea due to my recent dealings with that store. However could not get in contact with the store whilst he was dealing with me (I was on hold) so he was sending them an e-mail. I also asked for a Manager to contact me as the entire situation, I felt, had not been dealt with both by Currys and Samsung. They phoned me back to inform me that a Manager will phone me on the 22/04/13. I had to make three calls on 22/04/13 until I was responded to by a manager, who stated that the other manager (who was supposed to call me), did not get a message. They offered to go and look at the machine personally the next day and call us back. On 23/04/13, my wife recieved a call to state in fact that there was physical damage to the screen (despite us knowing that there was not). The customer services stated that if this was not the case (instead of a possible manufacturers fault), that they would send it to their team and assess it. If they deemed it accidental damage, that we would have to incur their costs. All we got was sorry for the horrible service we have recieved but you have to pay out money to have a working machine. We are collecting he computer and intend to sell it as spares as we see no other options. I have never been treated like this by a company before, the entire situation has been an unnecessary process and mentally straining for both me and my wife. I feel the store has been inconsistent with me and Currys’ own customer service team and I am stuck with a bill with nothing but a fault machine and a heap of grief. I would like to warn people about this and see if anyone else has had issues.
  12. Just a windows password. The computerstarts fine and goes to the screen where normally i would put in my password but the keyboard won't let me type. As I said previously, only some keys work but not as they usually would.
  13. I've had a laptop for a few years and it worked perfectly up until a few weeks ago. It starts up fine but my keyboard does not work. I password protected my computer so I can't log in. Some of the keys are working but are substituted for something else (i.e H=delete, Delete=unknown letter/number). I need help from somebody as I'm currently sharing my wife's computer and can't use mine until the keys are fixed. I live at Jordanthorpe.
