Hi Andy,
Can I just offer one more suggestion? I'm going on the basis that the
computer is indeed booting into desktop but, as suggested by someone on the
list, the volume has been muted. If you can see this as a possibility,
here's a fix. You have to do the following step by step  exactly.

Turn the computer on and let it do its thing for a good few minutes or until
we assume that it has booted into the desktop.
Now, do the following exactly.
Hit the windows key and touch the letter R. This will bring up the run
dialog box.
Your focus will be in that box, so now.
type sndvol32 into the run command edit box and hit enter.
This will bring up the speaker volume control.
If we assume that the volume speaker control is now on the screen.
Now. Tab 2 times and then touch the spacebar.
If that checkbox has been checked, you should now have sound.

Thanks Peter, I followed what you said, but unfortunately it didn't work,
but I'll bear it in mind another time, for I can see how it's one
possibility -

| Hi Andy,
| My first guess is that you are stuck halfway through the login on an
option
| that might be start windows in safe mode.
| If this is the case, What I'd do is give the computer a good couple of
| minutes from turn on, then hit the enter key and sit and wait. If your
| computer was sitting on the option to reboot in safe mode, it should
| continue in that mode right into the desktop. You likely won't have sound
at
| this point, But wait a moment or three and you can then try a restart.

| Hi all
|
| I'm using JFW in 40 min mode on my laptop, and things have been ok until
| this morning.
|
| I now can't get the laptop to reboot, when I power on, I get no sound, not | even the Vista tinkle tune, and of course, no JFW to tell me if I'm on the
| log on screen
|
| I've tried removing the battery, and I've checked if I've muted sound by
| inadvertently touching the touch pads above the function keys, but I don't
| seem to have done this, I'm pretty sure I'm not getting to the log on
| screen!
|
| I can't get Narrator to run, and usually if I put a cd in the drive, it
| would come up playing in WMP, but now the drive just spins up to speed,
and
| then stops again.
|
| Any ideas please? Oh yes, it is plugged in too <smile> -
|
| Andy
