Hi Barry
Thanks for that info. Its not to bad just moving a tower but out of the question to bring monitor and keyboards etc.
This is something new since I was last there so I will bear it in mind.

  Hi Alan,

  Please excuse the private message.
  I'm pleased that you got it working. You may be interested to know that
  the club has access to a computer suite/school room at the Rowing Club
  building, as long as we ask nicely in advance, so you can bring along a
  problem desktop and plug it into the existing monitors and keyboards.

  I noticed from one of your other posts that you were using an ISO from a
  cover disk off a magazine. It is not unknown for ISOs to get corrupted
  so, in your situation, it is often worth trying a completely fresh
  download from the official web site, and burn a brand new disc, as a
  last chance to get things working.
