    Hi all,

    I bought a laptop at Comet 32 Days ago which seemed to work fine until today.

    I was using it to import music to iTunes and write out a document in Word when all of a sudden I got a shock and saw a spark and the screen went blank. I turned off/on the laptop and it seems to be working :S but I am going to return it.
    It's brand is Acer if it means anything - anyone heard of anything simmilar with these laptops?

    Question is should I expect a Repair or am I rightly entitled to a refund / swap for another laptop ? because I am very wary of this one and the brand now as this is the only Acer product I have had.

    Depends on where you bought it whether they will replace or repair, thirty days most places, or you may need to contact Arcer and ask for a replacement. Tell them you have concerns that the arc may have damaged something else yet may take awhile to rear its ugly head.
