So the story is basically, it was on the carpet charging. My woman I am in talks with walks by it and notices some sparkage. She runs to get me, I get in the room and the thing is on fire. The room is full of smoke. I take a cup and fill it with sink water and douse it out. Called HP, had to go through this lengthy process over the phone. Supervisor was a dick and acted like he did not believe me...finally got them to put in a ticket to whatever department handles fires. Oh, and the supervisor asked me if A) I called the fire department and B) If I could turn it on....ANYHOW, I have to send said pictures to HP and fill out all this paperwork. They are sending me a label to ship the box to them and they will let me know what they can do for me.

so, will HP cover anything more than the Laptop?

If they don't cover it (Hp), would it be sensible to claim it on your insurance policy (home or apartment) depending on the deductible? I mean especially if your carpet is ruined.

I know that I claimed my laptop on my renters insurance when my drunk ass roommate pissed on my brand new Vaio about 2 years ago (i didn't purchase the accidental coverage through best buy). I got more reimbursed from the insurance agency because it was so new.
