The only difference being you won't get asked to format or see a yellow bar wiping the drive

One thing though...the USB keyboard or mouse isnt working now.
I can see power going to the keyboard when booting up the pc and the mouse (which is optical) has its red light on underneath. But i cant move the cursor or log-on.
I have been in the BIOS and enabled USB.

Use a standard keyboard to log on, connect the USB Keyboard which should work then, download the software for it

It must be a USB issue if the mouse isnt working either

Remove the leads and boot the PC, plug it in when it gets to the welcome screen
See if it has a converter plug to USB, you could remove it and plug it in to the standard socket

Looks like im going to have to save the data on the disk by placing it in an external enclosure and hooking it up to my own pc. Take whatever data i need and reinstall XP and put the data back on.
Thanks for the help anyway.

Click using boot and nuke for the programme guide
To completely erase all data on the drive(s)
Download Boot and Nuke
Using Boot and Nuke
Use the autonuke option, which could take 8 hours or so, then when you run Windows set up, check it is creating a RAW1 partition on C, if the drive letter is different, restart the PC and it should default to C

If you run a repair install it should resolve any issues, yours didn't, so it could be wise to comprehensively wipe the drive
