The disk was taken out, no joy the disk was put back in and any key pressed which returned this message 'Disk error, press any key to restart'. He says he's been to the BIOS and disabled the PC from checking the floppy drive. Any ideas whats happening? TIA TR

That appears to mirror the problem exactly, but doesn't explain how to cure what he has been left with. TR

No he can't get to safe mode, but he's decided to give it to a techie to try and resolve it or at least rescue his data. Thanks TR
