    would the console shed any light?

    I look here with Workgroup manager permissions, not sure of Firefox ones would also show up.
    might be worth a butchers.

    hi

    Is this laptop a stand alone or a network laptop?

    If its a standalone check that you have all the correct drivers in the device manager.

    If its a network laptop your network administrator needs to have a look at it and log on as them and see if it works for them. It could be a service stopped or group policy.

    Yes the apple Mac Laptop is a standalone.

    Also where do I find the console you are refering to.

    If you got to applications and then go to the utilities folder it is in there.
    Can usually find a list of errors in the Console Messages or system.log under log files.

    alternately you can click on go (on the top menu bar) and there should be a utilities option in there and you'll find the console in there.
