Further to earlier found on microsoft site a download to check cd rom drive, did not repair but now I cannot start the laptop. It will not start in safe mode or last good and as the cd rom will not read cannot load the xp recovery cd. Had a back up on external drive at one time but it will not read that even with it as boot. Any ideas how to get it going again, I have a thought about buying exteral cdrom. ANy help please. Thanks Bill

A link to your earlier post Here I suggest you stick to that one and we'll post there for you. This thread needs to be ignored as it will confuse.

Thanks but the problem now is it more critical after trying the fix it on Microsoft site. Now will not load and cd will not read so all it does is goes around in circles. I think now I will have to try and put a new cd drive in it to get going again. This post is more relevant by trying to fix the first one.

I`ve posed some questions in the original thread and tied the two together. Have a look.
