Hardware Limited Warranty
General Terms
This HP Hardware Limited Warranty gives you, the customer, express limited warranty rights from HP, the
manufacturer. Please refer to HP’s Web site for an extensive description of your limited warranty entitlements.
In addition, you may also have other legal rights under applicable local law or special written agreement
with HP.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, HP MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. HP EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS
NOT STATED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT MAY BE IMPOSED BY LAW
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD. Some states or countries/regions do not
allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages for consumer products. In such states or countries/regions, some exclusions or
limitations of this Limited Warranty may not apply to you.
THE LIMITED WARRANTY TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY
PERMITTED, DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY BUT ARE IN ADDITION TO THE MANDATORY
STATUTORY RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT TO YOU.
This Limited Warranty is applicable in all countries/regions and may be enforced in any country/region
where HP or its authorized service providers offer warranty service subject to the terms and conditions set forth
in this Limited Warranty. However, warranty service availability and response times may vary from
country/region to country/region and may also be subject to registration requirements in the country/region
of purchase. If so, your HP authorized service provider can provide you with details.
This Limited Warranty applies only to HP-branded and Compaq-branded hardware products (collectively
referred to in this Limited Warranty as “HP Hardware Products”) sold by or leased from Hewlett-Packard
Company, its worldwide subsidiaries, affiliates, authorized resellers, or country/region distributors (collectively
referred to in this Limited Warranty as “HP”) with this Limited Warranty. The term “HP Hardware Product” is
limited to the hardware components and required firmware. The term “HP Hardware Product” DOES NOT
include any software applications or programs; non-HP products or non-HP branded peripherals. All non-HP
products or non-HP branded peripherals external to the HP Hardware Product — such as external storage
subsystems, displays, printers and other peripherals — are provided “AS IS” without HP warranty. However,
non-HP manufacturers and suppliers, or publishers may provide their own warranties directly to you.
HP warrants that the HP Hardware Products that you have purchased or leased from HP are free from defects
in materials or workmanship under normal use during the Limited Warranty Period. The Limited Warranty
Period starts on the date of purchase or lease from HP, or from the date HP completes installation. Your dated
sales or delivery receipt, showing the date of purchase or lease of the product, is your proof of the purchase
or lease date. You may be required to provide proof of purchase or lease as a condition of receiving warranty
service. You are entitled to hardware warranty service according to the terms and conditions of this document
if a repair to your HP Hardware Product is required within the Limited Warranty Period.
Unless otherwise stated, and to the extent permitted by local law, new HP Hardware Products may be
manufactured using new materials or new and used materials equivalent to new in performance and
reliability. HP may repair or replace HP Hardware Products (a) with new or previously used products or parts
equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (b) with equivalent products to an original product that has
been discontinued. Replacement parts are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for
ninety (90) days or, for the remainder of the Limited Warranty Period of the HP Hardware Product they are
replacing or in which they are installed, whichever is longer.
During the Limited Warranty Period, HP will, at its discretion, repair or replace any defective component. All
component parts or hardware products removed under this Limited Warranty become the property of HP. In
the unlikely event that your HP Hardware Product has recurring failures, HP, at its sole discretion, may elect to
provide you with (a) a replacement unit of HP’s choosing that is the same or equivalent to your HP Hardware
Product in performance or (b) to give you a refund of your purchase price or lease payments (less interest)
instead of a replacement. This is your exclusive remedy for defective products.
Exclusions
HP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF THIS PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERRORFREE. HP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE THAT OCCURS AS A RESULT OF YOUR FAILURE TO
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS INTENDED FOR THE HP HARDWARE PRODUCT.
This Limited Warranty does not apply to expendable or consumable parts and does not extend to any product
from which the serial number has been removed or that has been damaged or rendered defective (a) as a
result of accident, misuse, abuse, contamination, improper or inadequate maintenance or calibration or other
external causes; (b) by operation outside the usage parameters stated in the user documentation that shipped
with the product; (c) by software, interfacing, parts or supplies not supplied by HP; (d) improper site
preparation or maintenance; (e) virus infection; (f) loss or damage in transit; or (g) by modification or service
by anyone other than (i) HP, (ii) an HP authorized service provider, or (iii) your own installation of end-user
replaceable HP or HP approved parts if available for your product in the servicing country/region.
YOU SHOULD MAKE PERIODIC BACKUP COPIES OF THE DATA STORED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE
OR OTHER STORAGE DEVICES AS A PRECAUTION AGAINST POSSIBLE FAILURES, ALTERATION, OR
LOSS OF THE DATA. BEFORE RETURNING ANY UNIT FOR SERVICE, BE SURE TO BACK UP DATA
AND REMOVE ANY CONFIDENTIAL, PROPRIETARY, OR PERSONAL INFORMATION. HP IS NOT
RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF ANY PROGRAMS, DATA, OR REMOVABLE STORAGE
MEDIA. HP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RESTORATION OR REINSTALLATION OF ANY
PROGRAMS OR DATA OTHER THAN SOFTWARE INSTALLED BY HP WHEN THE PRODUCT IS
MANUFACTURED.
Exclusive Remedy
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LOCAL LAW, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONSTITUTE THE
COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND HP REGARDING THE HP HARDWARE
PRODUCT YOU HAVE PURCHASED OR LEASED. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SUPERSEDE ANY PRIOR
AGREEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS — INCLUDING REPRESENTATIONS MADE IN HP SALES LITERATURE OR
ADVICE GIVEN TO YOU BY HP OR AN AGENT OR EMPLOYEE OF HP — THAT MAY HAVE BEEN MADE IN
CONNECTION WITH YOUR PURCHASE OR LEASE OF THE HP HARDWARE PRODUCT. No change to the conditions
of this Limited Warranty is valid unless it is made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of HP.
Limitation of Liability
IF YOUR HP HARDWARE PRODUCT FAILS TO WORK AS WARRANTED ABOVE, HP’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY UNDER
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF THE PRICE YOU HAVE PAID FOR THE
PRODUCT OR THE COST OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF ANY HARDWARE COMPONENTS THAT
MALFUNCTION IN CONDITIONS OF NORMAL USE.
EXCEPT AS INDICATED ABOVE, IN NO EVENT WILL HP BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE
PRODUCT OR THE FAILURE OF THE PRODUCT TO PERFORM, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS OR
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. HP IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM MADE BY A THIRD
PARTY OR MADE BY YOU FOR A THIRD PARTY.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES WHETHER DAMAGES ARE SOUGHT, OR A CLAIM MADE, UNDER THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY OR AS A TORT CLAIM (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY), A
CONTRACT CLAIM, OR ANY OTHER CLAIM. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY CANNOT BE WAIVED OR
AMENDED BY ANY PERSON. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL BE EFFECTIVE EVEN IF YOU HAVE ADVISED HP
OR AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF HP OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION
OF LIABILITY, HOWEVER, WILL NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS FOR PERSONAL INJURY.
