That's normally a symptom of a RAM error. You might want to try downloading memtest and let it check your memory.

No harm in doing another one. It may not be the answer, but I always prefer to check these things for myself. If you trust the store, take it back and ask them to fix it - you paid for a fix and they haven't done it.
