- is this covered on warranty?

My child picked up the front of my laptop and let it slam onto the
table from about four inches up. I don't know if the computer was on
or not at the time. Now I've got major read problems and SMART
warnings all over the place. It tells me there are hundreds of bad
sectors. (It's handy that my Dell Studio has the hard drive right on
the front side.) My hard drive is only a month old -- two years newer
than the laptop. Is it fair to RMA that to Western Digital for a new
one? Are the drives supposed to survive a four-inch fall?
Re: is this covered on warranty?
Maybe it just came a bit loose?
Take the battery out & then the cover off the HD compartment.
See if it works OK once you remove it & then re-insert it.
I'd be VERY surprised if a 4" fall would do anything to it at all.
Mind you my experience with WD drives is not that good at all.
Check out the new prices on Ebay? Half the price of Seagate..... & check out
who gives the best warranty too....
