Lock Up
Uses reset button which does the disc scan.
Still frozen
taps out F8 to get to safe mode and just gets a blank screen.
mouse or keyboard does nothing.

one of the options for selective log in with windows is with 'logging' - it tells you the name of the windows file it's trying to run during startup and so you'll be able to see which file is messing up the win startup - it'll be the filename it hangs on and sometimes that in itself can be a clue, other than that something like norton utilities that enables you to boot from the CD drive and run a few utilities, or any bootable 'DOS' type disk utilities shoudl help. Have a look on your driver CD's - the disk that came with my ATI graphics card has 'FreeDOS' which has helped me in similar times

Thanks Blurk99 for info.
I think the lady will have to call in an engineer, I am only a reload disk type man myself (Time Computer)

Things for them and against I know.
