Question about Cars & Trucks

Dell d600 latitude laptop not booting after using and installing vista upgrade disk. Vista o/s installed just fine, it did all the required shut downs and reboots required during the install ok and was able to transfer files etc onto the new system with no trouble at all however after shutting the system down for the first time (done correcly using the start button) it will not re boot - all of the power lights come on for 5 seconds and then shut off, the system fans do not start nor does the hard drive spoolup or the screen flicker, just the lights and nothing more, it will then proceed to repeat this sequence every 45 seconds until the battery is pulled and its disconnected from ac power. I have checked the power supply and its giving the correct voltage and tried booting with no battery nothing changed. I also checked for a bad stick of ram by putting card 2 in bay one etc and again nothing. there is nothing attached to the laptop that may be causing conflicts.. ie printer, ext. hard drive. Can anyone shed some light on this rather strange set of events?

It sounds like the virus did something to the boot sector of your hard drive. Once you have been infected with a virus, it's usually too late to install an anti-virus program to clean your computer.

If you have your Windows installation CDs or a recovery disc, you could attach your hard drive as a second drive to a computer that already has a good anti-virus program installed, and wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows.

Good luck!

I use my canon printer,a laser shot LBP 2900 with my desk top with xp OS.But I cannot use it with my vista laptop


You have to make sure you install the printer on the vista computer with a vista disc. The xp disc will not load it properly into a vista system. If you don't have a vista disc you'll have to go to Cannon online to see if they would give you an update online to correct the problem.
