I've always found installing Windows (and the drivers and updates) to be pretty straight forward if a little time consuming.

No true, but getting the software installed correctly after a hardware repair isn't much fun.
Do you need Windows? You could try Linux

Seriously, hope you get sorted soon.

I know. Hindsight and all that.

I'll be without it for a couple of weeks, in the meantime I'll have to use the DVDP instead.....

+1 Linux.
I dunno. Suggesting Linux to someone struggling with Windows strikes me as asking them to replace a Kettle with a flint, some twigs and a roll of Tin-foil in order to make a cuppa.

I have used Linux myself many times over the years, and have dual boot on this laptop Mint 13 and Windows 8.

Windows 8 is way my favoured choice when I boot up.

Linux's problem is as soon as something doesn't work properly it's Google and command line fiddling. Not for the faint-hearted IMO.
