    I was on the phone with them for a while, they kept telling me they couldn't do anything as I was out of warranty. I kept trying to explain that I have 3-year next day in home until 2016 and they kept telling me I was wrong. So in the end I called up for a 4th time and demanded that they do something about it. I thought i'd mentioned this, but I was getting it mixed up with another forum

    Well I know that, but the Dell thorough "memory" diagnostics does do extra checks on the hard drive(s) too.
