    Can you get into safemode

    Re start your PC and immediately on startup start tapping F8 about every second before the window screens and you should see a black screen with white writing....use your arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter

    thanks Bonk

    No I have not been able to get to safe mode. The problem seems to have got worse as the last few times i have tried to boot everything appears to power up but nothing else happens
