SystemGuard is a solution for the unexpected accidents. It is a warranty upgrade program that provides for the repair or replacement of a Toshiba notebook computer (one incident per year) in the event of accidental damage including spills, drops, damaged or cracked screens, and power surges.

The first notebook manufacturer to provide optional warranty coverage for damage to notebook displays through its ScreenGuard program, Toshiba now enhances that warranty by covering the entire system. Toshiba offers SystemGuard at the industry's lowest price and provides customers substantial cost savings when combined with a warranty extension or upgrade. SystemGuard makes repair or replacement easy and convenient with flexible options for depot, Authorized Service Provider carry-in or on-site service.

Customers can take advantage of SystemGuard within 10 days of system purchase by contacting a Toshiba Authorized Reseller or signing up through the company's online registration process available on all Satellite and Portégé 3000 Series notebooks. When customers encounter accidental damage, they simply call Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777.

If the hardware problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, Toshiba will arrange for depot service, dispatch a technician to the customer location or direct the customer to a local Authorized Service Provider for carry-in service, based on the SystemGuard program selected by the customer.
