I have not seen that error before. Did an update change some hardware driver? Maybe you need to check the setup or bios and see if something there might solve the problem. I do not remember right now, but possibly using an F8 key during boot might allow you into a setup utility to solve the problem.

Thanks for your reply Saltgrass, just to let you know I have got it fixed now by using system repair tool which can either be used from the partition on your hard drive or from the windows disk if you have one.
Incase anyone else needs the info how to fix this :-

From your computer if its installed on your hard drive :- reboot and on start up before you see the windows logo press the f8 button and choose from the options "start up repair tool"

Thanks for all your help :))
