My guess is you have a floppy disc, CD, or usb stick in a drive somewhere. remove it and try again.

Unplugged evrything out of CPU (one of which was a USB mem stick that one of the kids plugged in and forgot to tell me bout.), restarted it and BAM loaded straight away. Y didn't i think of that first. thnx to all for ur advise. Hopefully will never have to ask bout it again. THNX again all.
