ive just read in the manual to insert the recovery disk
and i did so,,,
it done some sort of test PCI SCAN COMPLETE was in it as thats all i saw cos it was so fast
and now i get this message whilst the recovery disk is in
"the file RETTEN.EXE is missing in the original directory,

if the file has been deleted this recovery is not available any more,

if the RETTEN.EXE file has been moved to another directory or drive
you have tostart the recovery manually

then a letter A:\>- the line starts blinking
as if i have to do something

Try tapping F8 when you boot to take you to the boot options, from there see if you can load Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration.
