How can I ask for a replacement laptop?

2019-10-12, 10:11 AM


My thinkpad l380 is not working properly at all.

I have sent it in to the repair center for one issue I have been having. They didn't fix it the first time, so I sent it in again. They replaced the exact same part again, plus they have now broken more things on the laptop:

  • They refreshed the OS with a worse version with various issues and slowdowns
  • My audio is popping from everywhere
  • The laptop keeps waking up even when I turn it off
  • The part they did replace is not working properly
  • The original part that needed replacing has still not been replaced.

I really don't trust the quality of the repairs at this so-called "repair center".

My warranty runs out in January!

I am a student and I don't have enough time to send this thing in for repair.

I'd like to get a replacement unit as I simply don't have enough time to wait around for the issue to maybe be fixed.

How could I ask for a replacement in the kindest possible way?

I don't want to sound demanding, but I'd like to get a replacement unit.

Hello Ollie welcome to the Community,


If you are not satisfied with the level of service you are receiving or disagree with the conclusions of a service partner you can ask for your case to be escalated by calling support for your product in your country. When you call you should have your system serial number and current service case number at hand, after receiving these and your personal contact details the representative will be in a position to escalate on your behalf.

Same problem - EMEA tried to fix problem several times and destroying more than helping in case.

Now after several months they have offered replacement, that differs and is not acceptable.

Lenovo seems to be non-professional in many levels.
