Friends computer infected with virus. Antivirus cleaned it and rebooted, now it won`t boot. Fan runs but thats it. I`m stumped so any ideas?
More info please,
Compac Presario 5000 with Xp. No attempted boot, monitor stays off. I pulled out the harddisk and connected it to one of mine, scanned it again and its clean.
When you say "clean" do you mean it is formated and no operating system?
When you say won't boot - you mean nothing happens at all (ahrdware problem) - or it boots but doesn't go into Windows?Will the system boot from a floppy?
have a look here,click here
Clean as in no infection. It won`t boot from floppy, nothing is starting.
You may have inadvertenty disturbed something inside the system.Check all the cables - reseat them.Remove and refit the RAMClear the CMOS/BIOS.If you hadn't been inside the system, then it's a strange co-incidence - what was the virus you found?
Make sure its not a loose connection in the pc first.... or a card or ram isnt loose. Then if it were mine I would locate the jumper on the motherboard and reset the cmos....to see if it would boot then.
ooops too slow.
can you remember the name of the virus?
