Dolphin can only offer product support for installations in Citrix & Remote Desktop Service environments where SuperNova Enterprise has been purchased from Dolphin. For help or information please call 01905 754 577.
For assistance with the removal of malware and viruses your PC would have to be returned to Dolphin. This is discretionary and chargeable service.
Dolphin resells a number of items of third party hardware including Dell desktop computers and laptop, and Index Embossers:
Dell Computers - Hardware
Dell computers sold by Dolphin will come with a Dell warranty. This warranty covers faults with the computer hardware during the period of the warranty. If you experience a hardware issue with your Dell computer during the period of warranty, please contact Dolphin Technical support on 01905 754765 to discuss a possible return to base repair under warranty. For computers that are no longer under warranty, we would recommend contacting Dell directly to discuss the repair options available to you. Dell Technical Support can be reached on 0844 338 1000.
Dell Computers - Other Software
Dell computers sold by Dolphin may come with a collection of preinstalled 3rd party software. Dolphin does not provide support for these products and customers are advised to contact the vendors of such applications for technical support. Examples of 3rd party software include Windows Live Mail and Power DVD.
Dell Computers - Operating System
Dolphin may be able to offer basic advice for issues with the Windows operating system on your Dell PC, but we may need to refer you to speak with a Microsoft Technical Support Advisor. Generally we recommend speaking with the Microsoft Accessibility Team who are trained in the use of assistive technology - they can be reached on 0800 026 0584. We would also advise customers to call this number if they are experiencing issues with any other Microsoft product, for example Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Word.
Printers and Scanners
Support for printers and scanners sold by Dolphin will be provided for the first 6 months of ownership, after which time Dolphin will refer customers to the hardware manufacturer for support.
Please contact support for questions relating to your Index products that were purchased from Dolphin. If a hardware issue is identified, the repair under warranty will be undertaken by the UK Master Distributor.
