was the message when computer was turned on. I have tweaked the Bios to allow booting from my recovery disk and arrive at the choice of Repair or Install windows. Repair asked for Administrator Password -tried 3 times using my usual user a/c password but no luck.

Going down the install route were I to reinstall do I lose everything ? secondly if I reinstalled on a new partition would I be able to access the files photos etc on the drive where windows was installed previously ?

Two points, if you did not set a password just hit the enter button.

Have you tried a repair install, this is a good guide and it leaves your files & folders intact.

Thanks for the response. I have now got past the admin.password by using the enter button, and took the plunge using my Mesh recovery disk.

We have a working computer again.
