acer free vista upgrade and moduslink nightmare,bought qualifing laptop,sent off for free vista upgrade,waited months since jan 07,always showed as pending,sent all my documents,loads of emails,now the qualifing period has ended,they say order cancelled, i dont intend to let this drop....there are loads of others from all different companies etc affected by this...i bought laptop from comet, a acer one.which clearly stated free vista upgrade...can any one tell me if my contract has been breached..and is my recourse of action back to comet under the sale of goods act?.at the worst can i reject the laptop if vista upgrade disc is now not going to be forthcoming,bought in jan 07..worried re the time i have spent waiting,i would not have got laptop if i knew this was going to happen,the laptop works fine on xp,but feeling conned...thanks for looking

I'm at my wits end, no one will help me not even comet! I tried that number you gave but cant seem to get through. Did you call any other number first?

Thanks so much for your help again

Comet Group plc
Comet House
Three Rivers Court

Tel: +44 (0)1923 710000
