Hi,My mum purchased a computer from PC World on the 30th of last month.Yesterday the blue light which is part of the on/off button has failed to light.I think it's just the bulb blown.Because the Pc is only a few weeks old,can she ask for a replacement computer or a refund?.If Pc World say no to either request,what are her rights.Many thanks,IQS

I think you can get either if it's within 28 days according to their policy.

They might just repair it. If it's only a blue LED that needs replacing or reconnecting it's just a 5 minute job, and if it's within 28 days of purchase they should just do it for nothing.

that's just a PC World-devised period.

By law, any fault that develops within six months of the date of purchase is considered to have ben present right from the start, and must be rectified by the supplier.

The failure of a LED isn't a serious problem, and I'm sure PC World will soon resolve it.

"Never mind 28 days"

The point I was making is that their policy of 28 days is the easiest time to get a refund/replacement out of them, rather than accept a repair.
