  • Service tag (serial number)
  • Delivery bill or order number

Neptun laptops by Dell have a 3-year onsite warranty. The warranty is connected to the service tag of the device. The type and duration of the warranty can be checked by following this link.

Easily replaceable parts which are categorized as Customer Self Replaceable (CSR) are sent to the customer by courier. The defective part must be sent back to Dell after replacement using the enclosed prepaid postage box. Examples of CSR parts are (depending on the model):

  • Power supply
  • RAM
  • Hard drive

All other hardware defects covered by the warranty will be repaired onsite by a service technician. For defects that cannot be fixed onsite, the service technician may need to send the laptop to a service center. If requested, the customer may also send the defective laptop to a Dell service center directly without using the onsite support.

Onsite support cannot always be guaranteed in remote areas.


If repeated attempts are necessary to fix a problem, this should be mentioned to Dell in case of a renewed service request.
