The sad :( face is now a :) happy face.....I've fixed my laptop!!! YEY ME!!!! I love the Internet, full of useful tips and tricks. A USB stick and a download later, a few buttons held down and Et voila.....one fixed laptop. I'm so pleased I didn't have to send it away to be fixed.
Thanks for all the fab comments about the tags and in response I'd LOVE to do a tutorial for you guys!!! Let me get myself sorted this week and I'll get on it.
And I'm also very pleased to say no migraine today!!! :D
