I wonder if anyone can help me... a cousins daughter has dropped this off for me to look at as she can't get it to work. She said she had a virus and now it won't work at all. The problem is after the part where you can press F2 or F12 it goes blank... power stays on but nothing else happens. I have looked in the bios and there is nothing obvious to me... just wondered if anyone can suggest anything to try??
