after someone who wont rip me off for laptop repair, around Wallasey.
I think it just needs windows putting it back on as the harddriv became knackered/corrupt, so I replaced it with a 2nd hand one with the same windows already installed, but it won't start or repair it's self correctly (but does try to)
I've downloaded windows and put on a DVD iso, and told start up/bios to look at the dvd drive first but it still isn't installing.
Could be that the mother board is buggered also, but doesn't seem to be with my limited knowledge.
Windows I have the licence for is Vista 32bit
