dell inspiron 1720, os vista 64 bit. on start up goes to chddsk then hangs until hard power down, on restart hit any will load, tried into safe mode, it will hang again. tried various anti malware etc: these will hang too! checked security updates, one outstanding, tried to download that, that fails. tried their fix thats a no go also, i don't have administrator rights. how do i get round this? not my laptop its the daughters.
tried that, very good tool but would not let me do a fulls system restore or restore to factory condition. tried the DELL recovery console and it did not find the recovery partition even though i could see it. the daughter is going to take back to pc world where she go it. will tick as resolved
