chewedpup: by chance are there any USB devices connected to the laptop with the issue? If YES, try disconnecting all USB devices and give it a try.

Let me know if that doesn't work or you don't have any connected.

As long as the drive inthe laptop you're using right now has a DVD burner in it, then yes a blank DVD would work just fine.

Guys, thank you for your help. The hard drive started clicking so we took the laptop to the repair shop, the guy said the hard drive is shot :-((((( nothing we can do - we've lost everything, but it means that I don't think there is anything that anyone could have done to save it. But thank you all so much for your help, you were all just ace. thanks again.
