If you want, you can download this WinPE Macrium .iso from my skydrive and burn it to CD. The download takes only 8 minutes and is a lot faster than downloading any Linux distro. Then you have an easy means to make images and recoveries too.

Thanks mate I'll do that I'll try anything because this week has been the week from computer hell.

My new Ivy B is rabid, the tester is now dead and my best laptop I cannot get the BIOS up so apart from this Sandy B chewing the biscuit not much else could go wrong - gotta smile eh??

John, why don't you take it easy for the weekend and go to the beach. Computers can wait.

Well I let it keep re starting and it suddenly lept back into life but am not counting my chickens yet.

Am at the moment ding a scannow in safe mode - hum no violations might just try a few scans with MBAM and stuff.

Well I found a few things in Googles a and one in a thread in here -

You might try disabling "Allow Wake Timers" in advanced power management and I changed the power option in the BIOS and so far so good.

I found using an old PS/2 keyboard too let me do things such as get into the BIOS and type in commands without the machine instantly going to sleep.

The only question it leaves is why did this take so long to manifest?

Looks like you are making some progress.

Too bad the beach is so far. I always imagined that in Australia people live by the sea because the inner part of the continent is so barren.

Hum well I thought the thing was going again but late last night I installed the Microsoft keyboard software (I don't know why it had to have that as it was working fine before) and no sooner had I done that than the thing went off again.

So it is dead in the water so to speak. I am just wondering about the PSU and what I shall try is to put a spare alongside and hook it up and power up and see if that works at least it will eliminate one cause if the problem persists.

No Wolfgang I live in a very productive area - mixed farming a lot of orchards, wheat, canola, sheep (of course), cattle etc etc That stretches inland for another 500kms and then it starts getting a bit dry. Lots of mines around here gold, copper, silver, actually the first payable gold site is only about a 45 minute drive from me and was found because the fellow who discovered it thought it resembled the Californian landscape.
As for beaches I suppose you could count the very large dams (reservoirs) but not really sandy beaches.

Bit of trivia for you!

Well first up I am going to throw on another PSU and see what happens, then well I don't really know?

Gold yeah I have done some prospecting and it is hard work alright problem is I smashed my shoulder doing it - fell onto rocks so don't do it much now hence the computing.
