How long has your computer been out for service?
It could be "In Transit" which really no one would know where it is. For all they know it is going 90mph down the freeway in the back of a semi, lol.

It was most likely sent to a Compaq service center and they're not giving GS detailed status.
You'd be toast no matter who you bought it from.
Not surprised to hear more of this coming from Compaq. When I was in college I worked in the PC sales department of the campus store. We weren't on commission and had no incentive to sell Compaq over any other brand, and based on our experiences with the brand we actively discouraged customers from purchasing Compaq units (to minimize the number of irate customers who came to bother us about the piece of junk we sold them).
Guess what - One of the few times we had a customer *insist* in a Compaq, it came back with a failed screen in just over a month.

The store should not have told you that you had to purchase a new laptop while yours was being repaired, and can definitely understand wanting a working laptop right away after only owning this laptop for four months. We do give customers 14 days to return or exchange a laptop purchased from us in order to make sure it meets their needs, and to ensure that it is not defective. If a defect is found after our return exchange period your laptop would have to be sent out for service, and the repair should be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty or the extended service plan purchased along with your laptop.
Best Buy® stores do not have any laptops that they can loan to customers while their laptop is out for service and this is most likely why the store advised you to purchase another laptop while yours was out being repaired. Although we can’t exchange your laptop for a new one, I can offer to look into your repair and do what I can to expedite your repair. I am sending you a private message, and to check your messages you should log into the forum and then click on the letter icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
Thanks for posting,

I was not happy to hear that after finally getting your laptop back from service it wasn’t returned to you in the same condition you dropped it off in. The service center would be responsible to repair any damage they caused to your laptop, but unfortunately the store is correct that in order for the service center to repair the damage to your laptop it would need to be shipped back to the service center.
I don’t see that the laptop was actually shipped back to the service center yet. I would be more than willing to work towards a resolution in this for you.
