Downloaded and ran teh diagnostics. Didn't realise it was the UBCD .. lol. Already had that : )
Anyway, ran the Fujitsu Hard Drive Diagnostics on it twice and both times it said it coudln't find the Hard Drive. Prob a big clue there. Gonna try a an old sata hard drive i have from a Dell, see if i can reload the Recovery DVD.
Many thanks for your help sabrex.
