The laptop is XP and an Advent 7086 if it makes a difference.
I also have something that slides around inside it, possibly something to do with the fan, but its been like that for ages. I dunno if it could possibly catch anything that would cause such a problem. The laptop, right from new, has always had a dodgy hard drive problem, but it hasn't caused any problems for ages (it used to give me random errors or the blue screen and then be fine again). I haven't any errors so I'm assuming it doesn't have the problems it has had in the past. It rarely gets shut down properly anymore if this would affect anything - after so long off being on it just refuses to come up with the shut down option.
As it is logging me on to a temp account I assume that my files must still be on there somewhere? All programs are still on there it seems as they are on the temp log in. If I could at least get to the files it would be a help as at least I can still log in to an account to use the programs and so on. I have tried restarting it, but it still does the same.
Any help would be great. If there is anything else you need to know just ask and I'll try and answer. Thanks
