OK, I must be confused with Circuit City where a friend used to work and told me that he made his money more on selling extended warranties...
The point is, that if a letter is to be written, the subject should more likely be that Best Buy is not honoring a warranty that they collected extra money for that they have no intention or earning.
Quite simply, If they can not unlock this drive, then I feel the warranty should cover its replacement and anything in addition to that for my time is not necessary- it just shouldn't be such a hassle, that's all.

Sounds like a new hard drive is the only option.
I am not sure if my friend has a recovery disk that came with her laptop. If she doesn't how can I reload
Windows 7 (legally)?
It has the MS Windows 7 tag on the laptop but I am not sure if she has the media...

Thanks for the info...I received a link to downloadable Windows 7 on a seperate post.
As much as I don't like passwords for personal systems, I am thinking that it might be a good thing to set a
password on the new hard drive that she knows, that way if she would were ever get a hold of some malicious software, it most likely wouldn't be able to change the password on her again.
Does this seem like a reasonable assumption?
