I would like to thank everyone who gave me advise on my problem, fortunatly I turned on the PC this morning and it booted up as normal so it's all fine once again to my relief, I did in fact turn it on and off and pulled out all the plugs yesterday, perhaps it was just a blip.

Thanks again.

As a last resort let it drop a few mm onto a hard surface. Believe me I have seen a few IT professionals solve problems this way.

Is it a laptop by any chance? If so sometimes the battery can discharge and even though plugged into the mains they will not reboot. Solution is to take out the battery and reinsert it. That is all that is needed

Not being flippant, but have you tried turning it off and on again a couple of times?

Don't know where you're located. but we can recommend Dale of Infortech 0298711481 he's a very clever computer engineer - he was able to retrieve information from our computer, when other engineers couldn't and we thought it was all lost.

Hi, it sounds like your hard drive has failed. I had a similar problem and I used a computer engineer to sort it out. His contact details are:  Philip Wittamore, Mené Informatique tel no 06208337832. E mail philip@Wittamore .com.  I can recommend  him, but other computer engineers would also be able to sort it out.

Regards Ron
