    Just to update, I now have my desktop back. Some of the OS files were missing (that might have been due to a failed MR restore). However, they ran chkdsk from a stick (as bbearen suggested ) and that...

    Thanks Mr B, the problem is that it only gets as far as 13% and seems to stop. The system (even though it's cut down for running chkdsk) then states that Windows has detected a problem and goes into...

    Sorry for dely to replies, just managed to get my old desktop with Linux working (well, off a memory stick anyway). 7" tablets aren't easy to use on forums like this one.

    I'm running chkdsk at the...

    Thanks bbearen, I have run it 4 times now with the same result. I was running chkdsk (after a reboot) but it failed before it finished. Down to the local repairers methinks.

    Hooray for Macrium Reflect!

    When I booted my PC this morning it came up with an error, giving options to refresh etc. None of these worked, so I got my USB stick with the Macrium Reflect rescue media on it, booted from it and...

    A question about sleep. Doesn't it require power to the laptop as the battery is still being used? I appreciate it will take longer to flatten, so as long as it isn't sleeping too long it shouldn't...

    Why take the laptop apart when you can do the simple thing using a memory stick with Linux, as suggested above....? It is simple, because I've done it!

    I've done the same. When the battery was completely flat, my wife's laptop wouldn't start. Leaving it for a while solved that problem and it booted normally. Hopefully yours will as well.

    X2 for FUN's suggestion, though perhaps putting the distro on a memory stck (using the iso to usb program) would be better. Either way it's safer than removing hard disks!

    I had never heard of this, but I'm very disinclined to use BT anyway. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FON) confirms that if your connections are piggy backed, you don't get any discount.
