lol thanks for the replies. Got bored of waiting with a dead box lol. Googled it for about 6 hours before giving up all hope, have now re installed it! and if i'm that much of a guru i wouldn't have messed it up in the first place
i'm sure one day i'll look back on this and think 'ah, yes!' but alas today, i'll have to give up!
Anywho! thanks for the help
