How new?

What have you done with it so far?

HAs it ever booted?

May be time for it to go back to where you got it.

no never done a thing yet, wont let me, will get it back, but could be lengthy process, it was supplied via head office at work, but cant see option. thought there may be something simple i missed

A silly question perhaps but does it actually have an operating system installed?

  pardewout 19:24 04 Feb 2007

yes, or at least it is supposed to have, xp media edition , its brand new, it has been supplied from head office at work, i know it more than likely will have to go back, but thought it may be something simple. It takes weeks to get anything back and i wanted to get cracking with it

Do you have any CDs for it? You could try to boot with one and see what happens.

Take it back and let them sort it.
Either it hasn't got windows on it in the first place or a lead has come loose inside or something has failed.
Bearing in mind its a laptop, new and not yours anyway but your works its best to just give it back and let them sort it.
