Thanks, InlandAZ smile

I'll be passing ALL the info and suggestions you kind folks have provided on to my Son in Law as soon as I see him.

And I'll let you know if the problem gets resolved yes

Let us know Mad, I'm curious. You don't by any chance have an external hard drive attached to the PC do you? If so, you might disconnect it and see if you boot up normally.

Hi.

My Son in Law was able to pay a flying visit last night and said there is corruption in the Bios.

And he's sourced an identical (replacement) Motherboard at a very low cost to try.

If that doesn't work he says he will build me another XP machine - from stuff he has in already plus the really good bits of my existing machine.

I have regularly backed up important stuff to an external drive as well so I'm confident all will turn out OK.

What ?? Borrow him ??

NO !! He's Mine, all MINE !!

rotfl rotfl rotfl

Yes. I am really lucky he lives near enough (and has the knowledge) to help.

My other Son in Law is also a techie whizz but his work required him to move several hundered miles away a few years ago, so it's been mainly help via email from him since then.

However, I appreciate ALL help. And I get a lot here at Gameboomers too - for which I'm very grateful praise

Pity I can't lay claim to YOU as well, Draclvr, considering how much you also have helped me laugh laugh laugh
