    XP?

    Boot it up, press F8 and select “last known good configuration”

    tried that – message I get is:

    ‘windows could no start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    \windows\system32\config\system

    arse – I need to work tomorrow too….

    Had this on an XP machine yesterday. Boot Install CD, select repair OS when booted, Slect the OS you have. i.e. 1 – login with the admin details i.e. your logon unless you have an alternative admin logon/password. when logged in run at the C:/WINNT prompt chkdsk /r and it will repair the HDD while it scans for soft errors – it make take a few hours depending on your hdd size.

    OK, cheers for that – don’t have a booot cd as it’s a work laptop, so I’ll give it to the IT chap on tuesday and wait for lectures on installing spotify on work computers blah blah blah.

    Thanks for your help everyone, looks Like I’ll have to face the music next week!
