Warranty Information

Neptun laptops by Dell have a 3-year on-site warranty. The warranty is connected to the service tag of the device. The type and duration of the warranty can be checked by following this link.

Easily replaceable parts which are categorized as Customer Self Replaceable (CSR) are sent to the customer by courier. The defective part must be sent back to Dell after replacement using the enclosed prepaid postage box. Examples of CSR parts are (depending on the model):

  • Power supply
  • RAM
  • Hard drive

All other hardware defects covered by the warranty will be repaired on-site by a service technician. For defects that cannot be fixed on-site, the service technician may need to send the laptop to a service center. If requested, the customer may also send the defective laptop to a Dell service center directly without using the on-site support.
