Having never been in to any PC World shop I don't know the routine. Do they have a "Service Desk"? If so I would be inclined to take it back in and explain the problem (nicely, don't go in like a bull in a china shop). Let them try and boot it and see what they say.

Suggest that you don't accept a repair, say you want a replacement, I was in PCworld and spoke to a customer who had waited 6 weeks for them to 'repair' his PC. The goods aren't of 'merchantable quality' under the sale of goods act and I think you are entitled to either a replacement or your money back, Be quietly insistent.

i dont really want a replacement as it has already been replaced and i dont think i want a third one if 2 are faulty leo

The first six months, its for the supplier to prove the machine is of 'merchantable quality', and as such consumer law is more in favour towards you than them.

What is it you actually want then? If you don't want another replacement you could ask for a refund and buy from elsewhere. Alternatively, you could try another one but let them show you it working before you take it away.
