hmm.. that is a little problem.. I know that dell outsources all of their on site tech support staff to a company in Texas..  The problem is that then they higher smaller tech firms to do their work..  I would call around and see if you can find anyone who is certified by dell to do repairs.  As a last resort you could use the geek squad.. but you are going to pay though the nose.

BTW Welcome to the forum!
