The first time it was repaired, we were able to restore their hard drive without having to replace it. A month went by before the customer came back in with the same issue. We then tried to restore it again with no success, their drive was dead at this point.<br> + <br> + Now, to address the below mentioned points:<br> + 1.) Repeated attempts were made to reach the customer in order to inform them that they would need a new drive. After two weeks, we received an email informing us to go ahead with the replacement of the hard drive. [I must admit at this point it did take a little longer than normal for us to receive the drive to install.] The customer was notified by the technician and interim technician that the unit's operating system would be required in order for the computer to be fully functional. Several weeks later, the customer arrived at the store apologizing for the delay and just wanted to pick the machine up at a later time and they would install the OS themselves (which would save on the cost of purchasing a new OS). They asked if they could come back in a week to pick it up, and that was fine with us.<br> + 2.) Yes, the technician did quote a price for the student license version of the Operating System (which is an upgrade only, needing a previous OS to install). When this was quoted to the customer, it was quoted because we were led to believe that the customer would be providing us with an OS and that we would then "upgrade" to Windows 7. When the customer was unable to provide one, they were indeed quoted the price of a full version, which is more expensive.<br> + 3.) As far as the old drive was concerned, it is always a good idea to back up your data before bringing in any computer to any repair shop. We are usually very good about trying to help customers out with this. Normally, we do try to give the old parts back to the customer after a repair is finished, but we are incredibly sorry that in this case that part was lost.<br> + 4.) We provided the customer a power cord that they picked up at a later date. (We had failed to give it to them at the time the tower was picked up).<br> + <br> + As far as the compensation is concerned, the service fee was waived. My point in all this is, we really try to satisfy every customer. --["Users/MAdams"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UC Davis Bookstorehttp://daviswiki.org/UC_Davis_Bookstore2011-01-12 15:13:20shamblerComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UC Davis Bookstore<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 150: </td> <td> Line 150: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-01-12 14:13:20'' [[nbsp]] My comment is about the repair shop<br> + <br> + After having my desktop repaired here i would never recomend thier services to anyone.

This is when the problems began.<br> + <br> + 1st After not hearing back for a month i went in to ask about the hold up, i found out the repair technition had quit and they had not bothered to contact and finish his projects.<br> + <br> + 2nd Next the price he quoted me on for windows 7 was apperently wrong since i was told it was going to be an extra 60 dollars<br> + <br> + 3rd and defintally the most distressing was that they lost my old hard drive. Meaning that i lost 3 years of photos, documents, music, and everything else.

I have tried avoiding buying books at the book store but sometimes the internet is not reliable enough to send you something on time. I tried doing their price matching thing and it was a no go because the bookstore decided to be sneaky and order a "binder-ready" version of the text which is assigned a different ISBN. I found the exact same book on another site that was a whopping 40% lower than the price in the book store and even though it came with the CD and access code (like the one in the store), they wouldn't accept the match because it had a different ISBN. The books were exactly the same. Just the one from the store is a stack of papers with holes in it whereas the other website was selling an actual BOOK. It's ridiculous because you'd think that the actual book with a binding and cover should be more expensive but the bookstore still wouldn't accept it.<br> + <br> + And about the 10% restocking fee, you need proof from your professor that the text is worthless for your class. This isn't much of an issue for me because that's exactly what happened in my class except the bookstore doesn't believe me and wants written proof from the professor. It's just a hassle to email but whatever, the bookstore is not getting any more of my money. --["Users/Blaine"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UC Davis Bookstorehttp://daviswiki.org/UC_Davis_Bookstore2010-02-02 14:50:40JeffShawadded office supply phone number <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UC Davis Bookstore<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 15: </td> <td> Line 15: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ||Office Supply: (530)752-2952||</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UC Davis Bookstorehttp://daviswiki.org/UC_Davis_Bookstore2010-01-27 19:29:13JasonAller(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UC Davis Bookstore<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 40: </td> <td> Line 40: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The UCD Bookstore works hard to combat shoplifting, which is apparently endemic.

I bought a 150-page novel for a class the other day whose $7.95 was covered by a little white sticker, presumably so I would not question being charged $13 at the register.

Especially if they are required texts, but you don't really need your own copy. I stopped buying textbooks completely. Shields has copies of most texts on reserve. And when they didn't, I asked the professor to request that it be placed on reserve. And they always did. I don't think you can take reserve items out of the library, but I would just study at the library when I needed to complete assignments that required the text (I got more done that way, anyway).

Anyway until there is a reliable way to get this info elsewhere I encourage all you to do this:<br> + 1. go to bookstore &amp; write down the books required for each class on a note card (or wait for class to start &amp; get your syllabus, I've found that often times the bookstore lists books as required that are optional or not needed at all)<br> + 2. visit amazon.com or half.com or the site of your choice and save yourself serious cash<br> + <br> + If for some reason you have to buy a new book at the bookstore I heard from a former employee that they will actually price match lower prices from websites. Maybe someone can confirm/deny this who has tried?<br> + --["Users/BenJohnson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> UC Davis Bookstorehttp://daviswiki.org/UC_Davis_Bookstore2008-09-11 18:26:40JabberWokky <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for UC Davis Bookstore<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 3: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''|| ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Mailing Address'''||<br> <span>- ||Inside the ["Memorial Union"]||</span> ||2828 ["Cowell Boulevard"]||<br> <span>-</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Hours'''||<span>&nbsp;||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;||<br> -</span> ||Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 6pm (5pm during the summer)||<span>&nbsp;||||<br> -</span> ||Saturdays, 12pm - 5pm||<span>&nbsp;||||</span> </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<span><br> + ||Inside the ["Memorial Union"]||<br> +</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Mailing Address'''||<br> <span>+</span> ||2828 ["Cowell Boulevard"]||<br> <span>+</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Hours'''||<span><br> +</span> ||Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 6pm (5pm during the summer)||<span><br> +</span> ||Saturdays, 12pm - 5pm|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 11: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Contact'''|| ||<span>&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;||<br> -</span> <span>||</span>(530) 752-6846|| Warehouse: <span>||</span>(530) 757-3071||<span><br> - ||[mailto:bookstore@ucdavis.edu bookstore@ucdavis.edu]|| ||||</span> </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Contact'''||<span><br> +</span> ||<span>Main:</span> (530) 752-6846||<span><br> +</span> <span>||</span>Warehouse: (530) 757-3071|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 13: </td> <td> Line 15: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ||[[Mailto(bookstore AT ucdavis DOT edu)]]||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 18: </td> <td> Line 21: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The UC Davis Bookstore<span>&nbsp;sells</span> textbook<span>s</span>, school supplies, <span>art paraphernalia</span> and ["Apple Computer" Apple] products in the ["Computer Shop" computer shop].
