Open Question

Virus or did I mess?

Hi. A friend of mine had something that looked like a virus on her laptop. I scanned the hard disk many times but only found some spyware. The pc did not boot at all displaying only f9 & f10 options.i set the bios to defaults with the same result, each time the pc started, it hung with some garble display scrolling vertical or horizontal lines + some VB script alongside the screen. I tried to update the bios via a USB key, it only did 43% before it stopped. Now i don't even have a display:(. Power on, led keeps flashing left of the caps lock key, pc seems to start but nothing appears! Thanks for helping... I'll send you a card from my tropical island Mauritius. Thierry

Normally computers today have a recovery partition or a recovery disc. you will need one of these to boot the computer up and recover or repair the computer. most of the time its easier to just pull out the hard drive attach it to a working computer carefully copy the files they want or need and make sure to virus scan them and then just do a fresh install of windows on it with a virus protection program as well.

Dvd tray pops out by itself

Hi. Sounds like you have a Virus. Do a Full Virus Scan not just the Quick one. It should help.

My kingston micro sd card has autorun.inf. Is it safe ?


OK, the autorun.inf is a file that you should not actually be able to see, as it should be hidden, but it is normal.

Have a look HERE.

But, in some cases this is a duplicate virus file, so, best is to scan this drive, and let your virus protector delete it if it is a virus.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Hi my dvd burner doesn't recognize my virgin disks

Sound like your cable that connects your burner to the motherboard. Try another cable, if you want to try another trouble shoot item, try connecting it behind the hard drive. Before you do set the jumper setting to slave on the burner and hook it up. That will help you to elimate a channel.

Hello hope someone can help.a virus completely uninstalled my DVD/CD drivers i cant play any type of disk cd or dvd and when i checked the drivers it was not there i have a advent ert2250 and the dvd/cd...


A Virus Would Corrupt or remove/Change drivers.
You need to remove The Virus.
You should then remove The DVD Drive Manually from The Machine.
Start the Computer without The Drive, then power Off the Computer.
re-install the Drive, boot up and Hopefully it should be detected in ( found new Hardware ) if not, go to add new hardware wizard, and see if it,s detected there. A Virus Can Actually lock-Off a Drive.

Slow read speed

I suggest you first restore your computer to a previous date when the drive was working propperly *USE SYSTEM RESTORE*

If that doesnt help Run an ant virus scan and Anti spyware scan.

Check the cables connecting the drive in your computer for defect of age and replace if necessary

Check the drive on anoter pc to see if you get the same proplem , if you do then you will need to change the drive as its life span is ending

If it works the something is wrong with your computer, backup you data, Format the hard drive and reinstall windows , your drivers and software and check the drive to see if its working.

if no then the problem is hardware. you might want to considering upgrading

NB.. defragging you hard drive before formatting might help
