THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE
OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE (OR JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION). DELL'S RESPONSIBILITY FOR MALFUNCTIONS AND DEFECTS IN
HARDWARE IS LIMITED TO REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT AS SET FORTH IN THIS
WARRANTY STATEMENT. ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR THE
PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE,
ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE TERM OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD
REFLECTED ON YOUR PACKING SLIP OR INVOICE. NO WARRANTIES, WHETHER
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL APPLY AFTER THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD HAS
EXPIRED. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN
IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT LIABILITY BEYOND THE REMEDIES PROVIDED FOR IN THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY OR FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES,
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LIABILITY FOR THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS
AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES, FOR PRODUCTS NOT BEING AVAILABLE FOR USE,
OR FOR LOST DATA OR LOST SOFTWARE. OUR LIABILITY WILL BE NO MORE
THAN THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF A
CLAIM. THIS IS THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT FOR WHICH WE ARE RESPONSIBLE.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY
NOT APPLY TO YOU.
How long does this limited warranty last?
This limited warranty lasts for the time period indicated on your packing slip or invoice, except

96
•
Portable computer batteries carry a 1-year limited warranty.
•
Projector lamps carry a 90-day limited warranty.
•
Memory carries a lifetime limited warranty.
•
Monitors carry the longer of either a 3-year limited warranty or the remainder of the

•
Other add-on hardware carries the longer of either a 1-year limited warranty for new parts
and a 90-day limited warranty for reconditioned parts or, for both new and reconditioned
parts, the reminder of the warranty for the Dell computer on which such parts are installed.
Appendix
The limited warranty on all Dell-branded products begins on the date of the packing slip or
invoice. The warranty period is not extended if we repair or replace a warranted product or any
parts. Dell may change the availability of limited warranties, at its discretion, but any changes
will not be retroactive.

What will Dell do?
During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited
warranties: During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other
limited warranties, we will repair any Dell-branded hardware products returned to us that prove
to be defective in materials or workmanship. If we are not able to repair the product, we will
replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished.
Appendix
97
w w w. d el l. c om | s upp ort . del l . com
When you contact us, we will issue a Return Material Authorization Number for you to include
with your return. You must return the products to us in their original or equivalent packaging,
prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk if the product is lost or
damaged in shipment. We will return the repaired or replacement products to you. We will pay
to ship the repaired or replaced products to you if you use an address in the United States
(excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the product
to you freight collect.
If we determine that the product is not covered under this warranty, we will notify you and
inform you of service alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any
other storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information and
removable media such as floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not responsible for any of your
confidential, proprietary, or personal information; lost or corrupted data; or damaged or lost removable
media.
During the remaining years: For the remaining period of the limited warranty, we will replace
any defective part with new or refurbished parts, if we agree that it needs to be replaced. When
you contact us, we will require a valid credit card number at the time you request a replacement
part, but we will not charge you for the replacement part as long as you return the original part
to us within 30 days after we ship the replacement part to you. If we do not receive the original
part within 30 days, we will charge to your credit card the then-current standard price for that
part.
We will pay to ship the part to you if you use an address in the United States (excluding Puerto
Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the part freight collect. We
will also include a prepaid shipping container with each replacement part for your use in
returning the replaced part to us.
NOTE: Before you replace parts, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage
device(s) in the product(s). We are not responsible for lost or corrupted data.
What if I purchased a service contract?
If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the
service agreement. Please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
If you purchased through us a service contract with one of our third-party service providers,
please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service.

Appendix
How will you fix my product?
We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty
repairs and in building replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are parts
or systems that have been returned to Dell, some of which were never used by a customer. All
parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement parts and systems are
covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns
all parts removed from repaired products.
May I transfer the limited warranty?
Limited warranties on systems may be transferred if the current owner transfers ownership of
the system and records the transfer with us. The limited warranty on Dell-branded memory may
not be transferred. You may record your transfer by going to Dell's website:

Dell Inc. Ink and Toner Cartridges Limited
Warranties
Dell Inc. warrants to the original purchaser of genuine Dell-branded toner cartridges that they
will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the life of the cartridge and that for
genuine Dell-branded ink cartridges they will be free from defects in material and workmanship
for two years beginning on the date of invoice. If this product proves defective in either material
or workmanship, it will be replaced without charge during the limited warranty period if
returned to Dell. You must first call our toll-free number to get your return authorization. In the
U.S., call 1-800-822-8965; in Canada, call 1-800-387-5757. If we are not able to replace the
product because it has been discontinued or is not available, we will either replace it with a
comparable product or reimburse you for the cartridge purchase cost, at Dell’s sole option. This
limited warranty does not apply to ink or toner cartridges that have been refilled or improperly
stored or due to problems resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, neglect, mishandling,
incorrect environments, or wear from ordinary use.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE
OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE (OR JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION). DELL’S RESPONSIBILITY FOR MALFUNCTIONS AND DEFECTS IN

WARRANTIES CONTAINED IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, DELL DISCLAIMS ALL

IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE TERM OF
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. NO WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
WILL APPLY AFTER THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD HAS EXPIRED. SOME
STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN

TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY COVERAGE TERMINATES IF YOU SELL OR OTHERWISE
TRANSFER THIS PRODUCT TO ANOTHER PARTY.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR
INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LIABILITY FOR
THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES, FOR PRODUCTS NOT BEING
AVAILABLE FOR USE, OR FOR LOST DATA OR LOST SOFTWARE. DELL’S LIABILITY

SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR

DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Dell Software License Agreement
This is a legal agreement between you, the user, and Dell Products, L.P ("Dell"). This agreement
covers all software that is distributed with the Dell product, for which there is no separate
license agreement between you and the manufacturer or owner of the software (collectively the
"Software"). By opening or breaking the seal on the Software packet(s), installing or
downloading the Software, or using the Software that has been preloaded or is embedded in
your computer, you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement. If you do not agree to
these terms, promptly return all Software items (disks, written materials, and packaging) and
delete any preloaded or embedded Software.
You may use one copy of the Software on only one computer at a time. If you have multiple
licenses for the Software, you may use as many copies at any time as you have licenses. "Use"
means loading the Software in temporary memory or permanent storage on the computer.
Installation on a network server solely for distribution to other computers is not "use" if (but
only if) you have a separate license for each computer to which the Software is distributed. You
must ensure that the number of persons using the Software installed on a network server does
not exceed the number of licenses that you have. If the number of users of Software installed on
a network server will exceed the number of licenses, you must purchase additional licenses until
the number of licenses equals the number of users before allowing additional users to use the
Software. If you are a commercial customer of Dell or a Dell affiliate, you hereby grant Dell, or
an agent selected by Dell, the right to perform an audit of your use of the Software during
normal business hours, you agree to cooperate with Dell in such audit, and you agree to provide
Dell with all records reasonably related to your use of the Software. The audit will be limited to
verification of your compliance with the terms of this agreement.
102
Appendix
The Software is protected by United States copyright laws and international treaties. You may
make one copy of the Software solely for backup or archival purposes or transfer it to a single
hard disk provided you keep the original solely for backup or archival purposes. You may not rent
or lease the Software or copy the written materials accompanying the Software, but you may
transfer the Software and all accompanying materials on a permanent basis if you retain no
copies and the recipient agrees to the terms hereof. Any transfer must include the most recent
update and all prior versions. You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the
Software. If the package accompanying your computer contains compact discs, 3.5" and/or 5.25"
disks, you may use only the disks appropriate for your computer. You may not use the disks on
another computer or network, or loan, rent, lease, or transfer them to another user except as
permitted by this agreement.
Limited Warranty
Dell warrants that the Software disks will be free from defects in materials and workmanship
under normal use for ninety (90) days from the date you receive them. This warranty is limited
to you and is not transferable. Any implied warranties are limited to ninety (90) days from the
date you receive the Software. Some jurisdictions do not allow limits on the duration of an
implied warranty, so this limitation may not apply to you. The entire liability of Dell and its
suppliers, and your exclusive remedy, shall be (a) return of the price paid for the Software or (b)
replacement of any disk not meeting this warranty that is sent with a return authorization
number to Dell, at your cost and risk. This limited warranty is void if any disk damage has
resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, or service or modification by someone other than
Dell. Any replacement disk is warranted for the remaining original warranty period or thirty (30)
days, whichever is longer.
Dell does NOT warrant that the functions of the Software will meet your requirements or that
operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error free. You assume responsibility for
selecting the Software to achieve your intended results and for the use and results obtained from
the Software.
DELL, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS, DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER
WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE,
FOR THE SOFTWARE AND ALL ACCOMPANYING WRITTEN MATERIALS. This limited
warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have others, which vary from jurisdiction to
jurisdiction.
Appendix
103
w w w. d el l. c om | s upp ort . del l . com
IN NO EVENT SHALL DELL OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES
WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF
BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION,
OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Because
some jurisdictions do not allow an exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or
incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
U.S. Government Restricted Rights
The software and documentation are "commercial items" as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R.

Regulatory Notices
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or
conducted along power or signal leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation or
other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio
communications service. Radio communications services include but are not limited to AM/FM
commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager, and Personal
