    Ok tried the fdisk-1 again and it did something different this time. This time this comes up:
    fdisk; invalid option - - '1'
    usage:
    fdisk [options] <disk> change partition table
    fdisk [options] - <disk> list partition tables
    fdisk -s <partition> give partition size (s) in blocks
    options;
    -b <size> sector size (512, 1024, 2048 or 4096
    -c switch off DOS-compatible mode
    -h print help
    -u <size> give sizes in sectors instead of cylinders
    -v print version
    -C <number> specify the number of cylinders
    -H <number> specify the number of heads
    -S <number> specify the number of sectors per track

    Does the fact this stuff comes up now mean that It`s not so bad and the hard drive isn`t damaged, something i`m able to fix? obviously with your help Werner. Is this all to do with the partitions?

    ok, now on the screen it says:
    Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
    255 head, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
    units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    sector size (logical/physical) : 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal) : 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x00000000

    Disk /dev/sda doesn`t contain a valid partition table

    Hope this helps, sorry for my mistake.

    Ok, your disk is still alive. Try the recovery with "testdisk" (within the Knoppix CD)

    http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
    especially: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step

    Read all carefully! It's not a job for beginners!

    I`ll give that a go, thanks again Werner. I`ll post again either later or tomorrow to let you know how it goes.
    I appreciate your help.
