So, around six hours, several failed recovery efforts and sans a fair bit of data later, the laptop appears to be back to life. In the end, after thinking that I should just hurl the thing at the floor and have done with it, I did a clean reinstall. Have no faith in the thing, of course, so am working on the old laptop, with its slippery pointing device, unlockable lid and inability to read from my old faithful USB stick which contains backups of all my recent work. The only thing I've really lost to reformatting is a few digital images - which is probably karma for asking someone yesterday if 35mm film and prints were worth all the mucking about. Hmmf.
