Ok,

Received iMAC back from repair yesterday, it was under 1st year warranty and had been playing for a couple of months up but eventually stopped booting. I was constantly repairing disk, telling me it needed to be shutdown all the time, apps crashing, etc, etc

They have apparently replaced the HD and I performed a Time Machine restore which completed without any hitches.

Machine was working fine, went out for a couple of hours and returned to a blank screen but unit was on. Keyboard and Mouse lights would not bring it out of suspected sleep so I had no alternative but to switch off.

On power up a bar appears and gets to about 10% and the unit switches off again, disk utility has given me the same error about it cannot repair so I'm back to square one where I suspect it's more than the HD

To say I'm miffed is an understatement

Send it back and have them look at it again. Who knows you might end up with a new iMac if they can't figure it out.

Well, it gets better. I've been offered the new model Buy Apple iMac MC508B/A Desktop Computer, Intel Core i3, 3.06GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB with 21.5 Inch Monitor online at JohnLewis.com and 3yr warranty and 100.00 compensation.

All being done this Saturday and at no cost to me.

Very nice! Glad to see they are going to take good care of you.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
