York, 10504
Statement of Limited Warranty
The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement
of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you
originally purchase for your use, and not for
resale, from IBM or your reseller. The term
“Machine” means an IBM machine, its features,
conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories,
or any combination of them. Unless IBM specifies
otherwise, the following warranties apply only in
the country where you acquire the Machine. If
you have any questions, contact IBM or your
reseller.
Machine: SIMM Memory
Warranty Period*: Three Years
*Contact your place of purchase for warranty
service information.
Production Status
Each Machine is manufactured from new parts,
or new and used parts. In some cases, the
Machine may not be new and may have been
previously installed. Regardless of the Machine's
production status, IBM's warranty terms apply.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from
defects in materials and workmanship and 2)
conforms to IBM's Official Published
Specifications. The warranty period for a
Appendix B. Help and Service Information
3-25
Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing
on its Date of Installation. The date on your
receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or
your reseller informs you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller,
if authorized by IBM, will provide warranty
service under the type of service designated for
the Machine and will manage and install
engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
For IBM or your reseller to provide warranty
service for a feature, conversion, or upgrade,
IBM or your reseller may require that the
Machine on which it is installed be 1) for certain
Machines, the designated, serial-numbered
Machine and 2) at an engineering-change level
compatible with the feature, conversion, or
upgrade. Many of these transactions involve the
removal of parts and their return to IBM. You
represent that all removed parts are genuine and
unaltered. A part that replaces a removed part
will assume the warranty service status of the
replaced part.
3-26
SIMM Memory
If a Machine does not function as warranted
during the warranty period, IBM or your reseller
will repair it or replace it with one that is at least
functionally equivalent, without charge. The
replacement may not be new, but will be in good
working order. If IBM or your reseller is unable
to repair or replace the Machine, you may return
it to your place of purchase and your money will
be refunded.
If you transfer a Machine to another user,
warranty service is available to that user for the
remainder of the warranty period. You should
give your proof of purchase and this Statement to
that user. However, for Machines which have a
life-time warranty, this warranty is not
transferable.
Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, you
should contact your reseller or call IBM. In the
United States, call IBM at 1-800-426-7299. In
Canada, call IBM at 1-800-565-3344. You may
be required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller will provide certain types of
repair and exchange service, either at your
location or at IBM's or your reseller's service
center, to restore a Machine to good working
order.
When a type of service involves the exchange of
a Machine or part, the item IBM or your reseller
replaces becomes its property and the
replacement becomes yours. You represent that
all removed items are genuine and unaltered.
The replacement may not be new, but will be in
good working order and at least functionally
equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement
assumes the warranty service status of the
replaced item. Before IBM or your reseller
exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to
remove all features, parts, options, alterations,
and attachments not under warranty service. You
also agree to ensure that the Machine is free of
any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent
its exchange.

1. obtain authorization from the owner to have
IBM or your reseller service a Machine that
you do not own; and
2. where applicable, before service is provided
—
a. follow the problem determination,
problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller
provide,
b. secure all programs, data, and funds
contained in a Machine, and
c. inform IBM or your reseller of changes
in a Machine's location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to,
your Machine while it is 1) in IBM's possession
or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is
