    Hi there, yeah sounds like its system repair time, do you have any recovery discs or an XP cd, if its and XP disc, do what was suggested above, if it's recovery discs pick the repair or the 'will reinstall windows back back up user files' then look in your C drive for a file called Windows OLD i think, this will have my documents, music ECT.

    You should be careful when you use those kinds of discs, come back and ask if you have any problems

    I've user HDD Regenerator before. It doesn't fix windows problems, it fixes bad blocks on your hard drive. It won't do anything to help your situation.

    You're still going to need an XP CD but I find that for boot tools Knoppix is a good CD.

    If you are still talking about the Advent 7110 then you should stick at least another GB of RAM (preferrably 2GB) into that laptop, before installing Windows 7.

    Re: Problem with laptop start-up menu- No acc

    Thx very informative advice. Will check out for knoppix cd. Sticked to windows xp but cant seem to connect wirelessly to the internet after installation.

    Am using linksys router. Had my old settings which should be a straight forward thing. However acquaring net IP is impossible.

    Also realsied I need to enable 820.11g authentication certificate from properties of my save wireless network name, but nothing seem to highlight to effect change. Any suggestions for getting round this will be appreciated.

    The last resort will be to reset the router and reconfigure.:oops:
