Re: Troubleshooting a PSU

said by Krisnatharok:

The PSU is technically still under warranty, but I don't know if Kingwin will honor the warranty given that it was sold as a pre-built computer.

Unless the mfg specifically has an agreement with the merchant to transfer warranties to the end user the warranty will extend to the business and it would be up to them to handle the paperwork / RMA process.

Exactly why I hate buying--or recommending that others buy--pre-built computers. You end up losing a longer manufacturer's warranty for a shorter, more expensive 1-year warranty that involves giving up the entire computer (you'd have to give up or RMA the entire rig to the vendor).

Given what I know about this computer store, I am predicting that he will be stiffed, so his recourse will likely be a nasty online review and a complaint with the BBB.
