Any chance you can safe boot into the registery,and sort it from there. Sometimes works.

The charger for the laptop arrived today and I have it working again. I've had no luck contacting any of the guys that used it at BA so it lookslike I might have to wipe everything and reinstall XP from CD. That's a pityas it already has a kosher copy installed - but locked down by Novell Network.The only problem that worries me is that if I use my own XP CD I presume itwill require activating after installation - and I can't really do that as MS will surely require me to buy a second license..
