I have been looking at a laptop for a neghbour where the screen is not displaying a signal.

I have stripped it right down and believe it to be the inverter in the screen thats the problem (although I cannot be 100%). Some searching on Google about prblems with this particular laptop show lots and lots of people with the same problem.

The laptop is out of warranty, but seeing as this is a problem that had affected lots of people with this laptop is it not a manufacturing flaw and should he be able to return it to PC world any way?

Under the Sale of Goods Act you have up to 6yrs (or 5yrs in Scotland) to make a claim for something that is an inherent manufacturing fault. I doubt PCWorld would do anything about it so you may have t contact the manufacturer directly. You could give your local Citizen's Advice Bureau a call for who and how to approach it just to confirm, though.

Good luck!

Shouldnt matter, I am more than competent in repairing laptops and can fix this one for the price of a new inverter, plus there were not "warranty void if removed" stickers.

Thanks for the advice guys I shall pass it on.
