From your post it would appear that you have given them ample oppertunity to sort out the problem. i believe that you have 2 courses of action.

1. Request a replacement.
2. Request a full refund.

If you paid by credit card then the card company may also be able to help.

Hello.

pricey...I sympathise with you.My dealings with PC World left a lot to be desired. In addition to spuds excellent link,I would advise that you go to your local CAB asap and enlist their help in getting this matter settled.

Since your date of purchase in Jan 2009 and the fact that your first problem occurred around in June 2009,there is a good case for a full refund.

PC World don't respond to emails or letters of complaints either in-store or head-office, so I recommend you do what I did to bring matters to a head.I should know.

1.Go and visit the local CAB as soon as you can as there needs to be a written record or your complaints so far.

2.Phone up Consumer Direct as per spuds link and make a formal complaint to them and ask them to investigate your complaints.

3.Call your credit card company (assuming you paid that way) and get the original transaction put into dispute. Credit card firms are usually very sympathetic to complaints. It may take several weeks to get a refund,but PC World have to respond to both Consumer Direct and your credit card firm.

4.Only as a LAST resort,contact your local newspaper and invite them to report the incident.I did this as well as complaining to the CAB, Consumer Direct and your credit card company.Its amazing how stores like PC World hate bad publicity!Needless to say I got a full refund of both my computer and pheripherals and not a word of apology from PC World.

I wish you every success.
