ok ive had so many problems with this laptop now, i decided to do a system restore to yesturday when everything was running ok.

so i click help and support and i get a download box appear that sais Context.htm

Open, save or cancel, and neither of them do anything, i cant get to the system restore menu, is there another way to system restore without going into help and support...?

yeh i got a box appear, just stays white, but
the bit at the top sais system restore, does'nt look like it loading.

can i just say the amount of problems ive had, i can'nt get n norton to to do a full system scan, or even see status, its like when i click anything nothing loads anymore... firefox is about the only thing that is working...!!!!

ok, the next step is to try system restore from 'safe mode'.

Carry out the following:
a few secs after start up press > F8, use the arrow keys to scroll up to 'safe mode' > enter.

you'll see a rudimentary windows interface. Thats ok. use then the same steps as above to access system restore. Windows is only loading essential drivers and you should be able to access system restore this way.
