    Mike calls in Dell Tech Support on 9/21/09 complaining about his Dell Inspiron 1545 system. He said that he accidentally spilled Coffee on his system while working and now the system is giving problems. He has got a valid Next Business Day and Limited Phone Support warranty but NO Complete Care. The Inv Date for the system is 9/12/09. What seems to be the best option?

    • A.

      Pull the system to depot for repairs under CC

    • B.

      Dispatch an Onsite technician to replace the motherboard

    • C.

      Transfer the customer to OWR for repairs.

    • D.

      Give a complete System Exchange to the customer since the computer is within 21 days.

    Correct Answer
    C. Transfer the customer to OWR for repairs.
    Explanation
    Based on the given information, the best option would be to transfer the customer to OWR (Offsite Work Repair) for repairs. Since the customer has a valid Next Business Day and Limited Phone Support warranty, OWR would be the appropriate option for repairs. Additionally, the customer does not have Complete Care, which suggests that sending the system to the depot for repairs under CC or dispatching an onsite technician to replace the motherboard may not be feasible options. Lastly, giving a complete system exchange to the customer is not mentioned as a possibility in this scenario.

    Correct Answer
    D. Provide him free support, troubleshoot and Transfer to OWR for any H/w replacements.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to provide the customer with free support, troubleshoot the issue, and transfer them to OWR (Onsite Warranty Repair) for any necessary hardware replacements. This is the appropriate workflow because the customer purchased the system from Dell and is entitled to receive support and warranty services. Since the Entitlements tab does not show the field for "Limited Phone Support," it indicates that the customer's support entitlement may be different. Therefore, providing free support and transferring to OWR ensures that the customer receives the necessary assistance and hardware replacements as per their entitlement.

The range of valid APIPA addresses is from 169.254.0.1 to 169.254.255.254. Therefore, both 169.254.0.1 and 169.254.192.168 are valid examples of APIPA addresses. The other two IP addresses, 192.168.1.1 and 255.255.255.0, do not fall within the range of APIPA addresses and are not valid examples.

    E. Describe what all you see on the screen.
    Explanation
    Open-ended questions are those that cannot be answered with a simple "yes" or "no" and require the respondent to provide more detailed information or explanation.

The other options, such as "Are the diagnostic lights green or amber?" and "Is the printer cartridge new?" can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no" and therefore are not open-ended questions.
