5mnth old HDD even (sorry about spelling my laptop has the spellcheck on it!!!)
A visit to your local trading standards for further advice is needed here. A 14 month old product of this type, would still come under consumer laws.
They are likely to be still responsible for the repairs but maybe you will have to pay some of the costs for it. You might find it easier and cheaper (although galling) to buy a new hdd and install it yourself.
