I've turned my HP laptop into Geek Squad several times since buying it 2 years ago. The latest issue was water damage causing the speakers and keyboard to break. I turned it into Geek Squad and just got it back today after 20 days of repair. They said that they had replaced the keyboard and the speakers and fixed my fan as well because I was also having trouble with the unit overheating. I took it home and turned it on, only to find that my "new" speakers are crackling and popping just as badly as the day that I turned it in! In addition my laptop is now running slower than it did to begin with. I really don't want to bring it back in because I know it will have to be shipped out yet again for another two weeks to be fixed, and what's worse is my warranty expired during the time it was being fixed. At this point I just want a replacement, not another bad repair.

I’m not sure why repairs wouldn’t have been completed on your laptop’s first trip to the service center, but I can imagine how frustrated you must feel. Being without a computer is always difficult – especially if you normally rely on one for business, school or to stay in touch with family and friends – so your disappointment is certainly understandable.
I regret to inform you, however, that your laptop would need to be sent back out for follow-up work under our 30-day service guarantee if you are still experiencing difficulties with the unit. Additionally, please keep in mind that your laptop would not qualify for a replacement unless it is approved for an exchange by the manufacturer or it meets the requirements of any applicable service plan coverage.
If you have not already done so, I would encourage you to bring your laptop back to the repair counter at your local store. Once there, simply send me a private message with the new service order number provided by the store and I’d be glad to see what can be done to assist you.
