Which you are entitled to do under the terms of The Sale of goods act - rejection of the goods.

The computer has a serious fault which existed at the date of purchase, and you are additionally protected by The Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002 which came into force on 31st March this year. The regulations state that you don't have to prove that the fault existed - the seller has to prove that it didn't, and this protection applies to the six months following the date of purchase.
