thanks MAT ALAN but the site you sent me to tells me that it may be something a bit more nasty because the hard drive light is not coming on anymore.

Thanks to both Mat alan & Fruit Bat for the help but my stupid laptop just started working again this morning, I switched it on just to see and it started to work, ( I personaly think it is just taking the mick out of me).Thanks again.
