noted); accessories or parts added to a Dell system after the system is
shipped from Dell; accessories or parts added to a Dell system through
Dell's system integration department; accessories or parts that are not
installed in the Dell factory; or DellWare products. Monitors, keyboards,
and mice that are Dell-branded or that are included on Dell's standard price

Coverage During Year One
During the one-year period beginning on the invoice date, Dell will repair or
replace products covered under this limited warranty that are returned to
Dell's facility. To request warranty service, you must contact Dell's
Customer Technical Support within the warranty period. See "Contacting
Dell" on page 73 to find the appropriate contact information for obtaining
customer assistance. If warranty service is required, Dell will issue a Return
Material Authorization Number. You must ship the products back to Dell in
their original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure
the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment. Dell will
ship the repaired or replacement products to you freight prepaid if you use
an address in Canada, where applicable. Shipments to other locations will
be made freight collect.
Before you ship the product(s) to Dell, back up the data on the hard
drive(s) and any other storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any
removable media, such as floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. Dell does not accept
liability for lost data or software.
Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products. Dell uses new and
reconditioned parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty
repairs and building replacement products. If Dell repairs or replaces a
product, its warranty term is not extended.
