Has the PC been moved recently? Classic symptom of a connection, somewhere, not good. Sata possibly.

COMPUTOR IS A COMPACT OFFICE PC AND NEVER MOVED.

Try tapping F8 on bootup to see if you can get to the advanced boot options window and run 'last known good configuration' option. Some PCs use F5 so try that as well. Note, to shutdown safely you will need to press and hold the power button and not switch off at the mains.

Get your Caps Lock off please.

Green light on back - is this next to the network cable? could be the network card.

Perhaps you need to power off open the box and check all connections - it may be trying to load from the network rather than the hard drive.

Hi Pern

The use of all capital letters is considered to be very aggressive on forums and equivalent to shouting at someone. I appreciate that you may not be aware of this so please take this in the friendly way it is intended.

Sincere apologies Alan,. Thanks all ,I left the PC switched on, flashing away and after an hour it has corrected itself. I have saved your responses , many many thanks
