Hi

thanks for the link to RUFUS, very easy to follow.

I created a bootable USB, I used a W7 iso, I tested the usb on another PC and it booted to
it without a problem.

But my problem Laptop did not, the light on the USB flashed a couple of times, showing
that it had been seen, activated, but went no further.

Cheers

You have a issue that I never seen before. And believe me, I have seen many.
- You can enter BIOS, so CPU and MB is working.
- On BIOS ODD and the HDD is recognized.
- On boot menu you can see the ODD, USB and the HDD.

I can only think on a BIOS corruption. How old is your computer?
Take out the main battery and wait 2 minutes and reinstall it.
Fist try to load BIOS defaults.
Have you ever replaced the coin battery?
Is the coin battery easy to reach? If it is, with the main battery out, take out the coin battery and wait 2 minutes. Replace with a new one.
Try to re flash the BIOS. Do you have a BIOS update option?

Hi

yes, it is spot on.

Also I cannot find the coin battery and I am reluctant to delve behind things in case
I cannot put them back...

Cheers
