Registering 3 year warranty? Also, tab on back behind battery?

2008-09-13, 13:38 PM

I just got my T400 yesterday.  I checked online to see that the warranty was correct and it only says through next year, but I purchased the 3 year additional warranty.  Will the status update soon enough, or do I have to register the 3 year warranty?

 

Also.. there is a tab with a white plastic blank on the back of the laptop, right where the battery goes.. what is it for?

 

Sorry for the dumb questions, but thanks to anyone who can help or point me where I need to go..

Solved! See the solution

Give it a couple of weeks for the system to register, however if it still don't show in 3 or 4 weeks time, give Lenovo customer service a call and ask them whether the warranty upgrade have gone through. I am not so sure about the tab thing, maybe someone else whom has a T400 can answer that.

"Also.. there is a tab with a white plastic blank on the back of the laptop, right where the battery goes.. what is it for?"

 

I've never seen a T400.  If it was a T60 or T61 though, this would be a place to plug in a SIM card. The white plastic blank would be a dummy SIM card, and you pull the tab to remove the SIM card (or the dummy SIM card).
