Well, I have given up on it as I can't boot from the BIOS and the CDROM is not recognized. I believe the the CD ROM is either dead or the IDE cable is slightly ajar. Whatever the reason, I just don't want to open a laptop as I have had no experience in doing that. I was told that if you don't know how to... Don't! There are sneeky little clips and screws that you could break while opening it.
So Thanks for the responses and I'll write when I have a new problem.
