A possible alternative telephone number 020 8283 3100, but it might be best to take the computer back to the shop.

I suppose it depends on how much memory was advertised on the specs when you bought it.If its as advertised then i dont know if you have any grounds for complaints,what do others think?

Any computer sold such that it opens up with this error message is not fit for purpose and should be returned to the place of purchase as it could be a faulty memory stick or it is not seating correctly. It is definitely not right so take it back quickly.

Sounds like an unseated or faulty memory chip. Because it is brand new, then contact the retailer for advice. Whatever you do, do not open the case at this stage, because a few years ago, this was a let out clause for voiding a warranty - the customer had caused the problem?.
