    that is a pic of the following commands

    Type> diskpart
    type> list disk
    type> list volume

    try this

    dism /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

    then try booting into safemode or using the commands below again

    C:\windows\system32\sfc.exe /scannow

    Dism /Image:C:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    C:\Windows\System32\bcdboot C:\Windows

    or download and create windows 8.1 setup media - Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

    and do a clean install windows 8.1 - the setup media will read both windows 8 and windows 8.1 product keys

    Well I have to let my lad get to bed now, so I'll have to resume this tomorrow. Thanks to ALL who've tried to help me get this resolved.... I hate to be beat,but I can't ask any more of you . Looks like it could be a clean install.

    all the best

    A report back.........thanks again for all your help, but in the end I felt too far out my depth with 'stuff' I didn't understand! So I decided to opt for a clean install of Windows on the SSD. First I cannibalised an old Dell pc and put the hard drive from that into this PC, installed Windows 8 onto it and got the computer back up and running. Then I copied as many files as I could off of the SSD to my secondary drive where all our documents are, and then reinstalled Windows 8 back on the SSD. It is working again, but whether all my son's games work yet I don't know! Just a heap of updates to do first and then we'll try them out. If there was anything important on the previous SSD then hopefully I'll still have it on the backup. It wasn't the ideal solution, but I've learned loads along the way.

    thanks again
