It is unlikely any one will help you and if they do the powers that be will remove the post and ban the poster (this happened to me a few weeks ago)
Ask an IT professional for advice.
If you work for a large oranisation or company there will be people you can ask and if they believe your story and especially if they know you they will tell you what to do
Not telling a story, I would not risk a ban for myself or someone else over a crappy HP netbook.
Honestly trying to help someone out.
The IT guys at the company I work at are clueless. They know less about PC's than I do.
