many thanks for the links...will try them as soon as he comes home..if anyone else has any further ideas then again they will be greatly appreciated, many thanks again

As suggested in those LINKS you may have to take it into an Apple Store with Proof of Purchase if you fail to rectify it by your own means and there may be a charge for that. Good Luck.

Will be prepared to pay but hope those links do work ...bit annoying though..lessons to be learnt I think. Thanks again
