I can restart the PC again O.K.and have tried the last good configuration in safe mode which did not solve the problem. I will see how far back I can go with system restore,would I be better doing this in safe mode?
if the problem persits then the windows OS needs repairing via the supplyed backup disk (affter backing up your files to prevent loss altough a repair should not effect programs and documents its always a good idea to back up before runing a repair)
Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\
the ATI Radeon9600 series is installed, which I presume is a graphics card.
Sorry but not sure what you mean by "if so update the uninstall the drivers in safe mode rebbot to normal mode if its ok then update the drivers."
