Even though the price of laptop computers has come down a great deal in recent years, buying a portable computer is still a major investment. That is why it is important to protect that investment with an extended warranty. While the manufacturer's warranty provides some important protection, there are gaps in coverage, and the coverage you do have will last only so long. By purchasing an extended warranty you will be able to protect your investment for many years to come.

  1. 1

    Locate the serial number on your HP laptop--you will need this information to purchase the extended warranty. In most cases the serial number will be listed on a label located on the bottom of the laptop.

  2. 2

    Log on to the Hewlett-Packard website and go to the support page (see link in References below). Enter the model number of your laptop in the box to search for your extended warranty options. You may have a number of different support options available to you depending on the age and model number of the laptop you own.

  3. 3

    Compare your extended warranty options carefully and make sure those options meet your needs. In some cases you may be required to send your laptop to a repair centre, while other more comprehensive warranty options may include on-site service.
