The client authorizes Student Computer Services to conduct an evaluation of the Computer sent to determine the nature of the damage or fault, and provide an estimate of repair cost and timing. The Free Diagnostic Check consists of a thorough Hardware and Software check to determine the fault, during which it may be dismantled to check for the fault, reassembled and further tests carried out on components to establish the fault and solution. No work beyond this evaluation will be charged without explicit client approval. However, exceptions apply for Computers where the fault is fixed during the initial Free Diagnostic Check / Inspection. Where the Computer is returned to a working and operating state and the fault has been fixed - a charge of £30 will apply. The client authorizes Student Computer Services, its employees, and agents, to receive and transport this media/equipment/data to, from and between their facilities.
