A long one got there in the end.....

Problem was...

The note book would run up it save mode no problem.....

So I when through fault finding through ms config.....With all turned off in the general tab still kept getting Error message.

Um so I went further and clicked on advance ...Whe hey...

In turn I did the same with advanced options as I did in general .

Un till I got to "Force Compatability mode disk access"

When this was ticked it started up ok NP

But none of my ide , cd rom etc would work .

so a trip to www.compaq.com

got all the drivers and installed.

un clicked Force etc and it started ok ...

Thx hope my fixing helped others......Later...Thx all for the reply.
