For the last few months, I haven't touched my Archos 5 at all. I'm talking about the dark brown/silver version. So today, when my mom asked me if I had a spare music player that I can give her, I decided to give her the Archos 5.

If Archos offer a one year warranty and you are beyond that period you should talk to the retailer -- from the sound of it you have a case for repair, replace or refund.
If they refer you to the warranty, refer them to the bit which says "this warranty does not affect your normal consumer rights".
