Lenovo United States Hardware Announcement

Warranty period for machine type 8820

System hardware - Three years on parts and labor

Optional Lenovo features initially installed in a Lenovo system carry the same warranty period as

the system. If installed after the initial system installation, they carry the balance of the system

warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.

Warranty service

If required, your service provider provides repair or exchange service depending on the type of

warranty service specified below for the machine. A service technician will attempt to resolve

your problem over the telephone. You must follow the problem determination and resolution

procedures. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts

availability. Service levels are response time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified

level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations, additional charges may

apply outside your service providers normal service area, contact your local service provider

representative or your reseller for country and location specific information.

Customer replaceable unit (CRU) service

Lenovo will ship CRUs to you for you to install, Tier 1 CRUs are easy to install whereas Tier

2 CRUs require some technical skill and tools. CRU information and replacement instructions

are shipped with your machine and are available from Lenovo at any time on your request. You

may request that a service provider install CRUs, at no additional charge, under the type of

warranty service designated for your machine. Lenovo specifies in the materials shipped with a

replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned. When return is required, return

instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged

for the replacement CRU if Lenovo does not receive the defective CRU within 30 days of your

receipt of the replacement.

On-site service

Your service provider will either repair or exchange the failing machine at your location and verify

its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of

the machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose. For some machines,

certain repairs may require sending the machine to a designated service center.

Call 800-426-7378 to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service

is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited

warranty period.

International Warranty Service (IWS)

IWS is available during the warranty period to customers who travel or relocate to countries

where their computer is sold and serviced by a service provider authorized to perform warranty

service. Eligible Lenovo computers are identified by their four-digit machine type.

You can obtain IWS through the method of service, such as CRU, depot, carry-in or on-site,

provided in the servicing country. Service methods and procedures vary by country, and some

service or parts may not be available in all countries. Service centers in certain countries may

not be able to service all models of a particular machine type. In addition some countries may

have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service.

Note: Due to the earth's magnetic field, CRT monitors are manufactured to work in northern,

southern, and equatorial regions of the earth and may not produce a satisfactory image when

moved between them. Any required adjustment (if possible) is not covered under IWS and may

be subject to a chargeable action. The magnetic field does not affect flat-panel LCD monitors
