I did a reinstall, and it worked, it recovered everything, then we
first went into windows and guess what happens, windows does not
shutdown, we do a forced shutdown and try and restart, so its back to
square 1.

am thinking
a>) hardware issue
b) wincedows  - is screwing up big time

am going to a 2 re-install , after which we will run the recovery -
wincedows wallah and then see that what happens
