My computer needs a factory reset it has picked up a worm virus from facebook i have a corrupt root 32 on my screen my computer will not do anything

You can either restore from the recovery discs or depending on the model, pressing a function key after the BIOS post screen. Not all computers offer the function key based recovery and different manufacturers use different function keys. F11 is the most popular.

POST and BIOS Question: Dead laptop I`ve been given a Fufitsu Amilo L6825 laptop which is faulty.( It fails to get by the POST test so doesn`t even reach the BIOS option.(It switches ON, fans run but black...

Since you swapped everything, the last option will be the on-board power supply. If it has failed, then nothing will work. As a guess, I would assume the 1.8v power supply for the CPU has quit.

My Epson EMP-S4 LCD projector does not display images from my Averatec C3500 laptop. It displays "No signal".. Do i have to press any keys before it would display? I suppose it would automatically project...

When you connect a data projector or external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the data projector or external monitor first then the laptop. The video info will automatically divert to the data projector/external monitor automatically.
If you have already had powered up the laptop first, most laptops will allow you to toggle between the LCD screen and the external video port by pressing the Fn key plus one of the Function keys, this key will have a screen/laptop symbol.
