13months ago...... (dell laptop related) & MAD!

Ok so 13months ago I was blessed with a dell influencer from cafemom & dell!
Now after the WONDERFUL 'warranty' was finally expired, my beautiful dell baby screen went white screen! & now I did call the 'tech support' & they said, "buy the extended warranty & we'll fix your laptop." (ok I guess.)
So I went onto dell website & the 'extended warranty' & it's costs over $200!!!! I don't have that kind of $$$$$ Oyi!
I'm so bummed & mad.

I'm going to call dell on Monday & yell at them!

It might cost that much to repair it if you don't have tech savvy friends to save you the $. 200 to me is worth the cash. Sorry though. It really sucks.

Oh $200 is kinda 'cheap' but I don't have any extra $200 any time soon.

I'm not seeing why it's Dell's fault you don't have the $200, and therefore feel the need to "yell at them."
