    My uncle bought me a new laptop four months ago, the charger has now broken :mad:

    They now want the whole thing back to send off and I have to wait for it to come back.

    Wouldnt normally be too bothered but i have essays due in next week which will now mean I cant do them, getting a computer at uni is like getting blood out of a stone.

    I really do not see why they just cant give me a replacement charger :mad:

    Ditto ebay - or even a local shop if you can pay a little more but take it home straight away.
    I know they are obliged to fix it but could you perhaps buy one for now and then send it off for repair once your essays are in (and keep the new one as a spare?)
    Good luck with getting it sorted x

    Added - not sure they would ever know if you had used a replacement charger?

    Why don't you call back the company & explain your situation & see if there is anything else they can do to help.

    Or buy a replacement charger then when your essays are all in send the whole thing back to be repaired.
