Friend has a approx 2yr old Tiny laptop with XP pro. Only recent change has been to download a climate monitoring application. Laptop won't load windows, not even in safe mode. Just keeps returning to error screen. Any ideas on the best course of action please. Thanks.

Thanks will get him to try. Have done a google search and someone said they had inserted the cd, then gone into the windows recovery console option and typed the command chkdsk c:/p. have you ever heard of such a command? Thanks

That is possible click here

The command would be

chkdsk /f

but only if it is a damaged hard drive that is preventing Windows from loading.
