Thanks for the advice but I have tried all those ideas
Thanks for the advice but I have tried all the ideas you have mentioned. I took my Vista back and PC World tried different versions of Vista to try and load it on to my Phillips Freevents Laptop. None would install - they all would not get past the 'press any key to boot from CD/DVD screen'
I have also tried installing it from an external DVD drive and that would not work either.
I think that its a bios problem.
Thanks again though for the tips, they are appreciated.
