sorry about last post too much beer.anyway cannot get into safe mode in fact anything on that screen,Its either a black blank screen or if trying to get into safe mode a list of what i assume are basic system and driver files.I am using a leagal OEM copy of xp which has not got a repair instal option.Is there anything i can do or is a clean reinstal needed.

Have you given it long enough? Safe mode can take ages on some machines

yesterday i left it for 5+ hours nothing,but today after i posted it has booted,very slowly but it got there,so i have system restored right the way back to the initial installation of xp then i will reinstall everything up to the item which i think gave me the problems.Thanks anyway.
