Hi, finally gave up trying to install Windows XP, the laptop is only used for my partners internet, email and the dreaded Facebook and its no longer supported so I've installed Linux and got it running again. Many thanks for all your help Phil I appreciate it

You are welcome Steviep  :)

 

Installing Linux is a safer option than XP if the internet is to be used so it is probably for the best.

 

Thanks for the follow up btw  :thumbsup:
