The virus could have scrambled and or removed your Windows operating files on your hard disk.
If you can get into your BIOS and it still detect your hard disk, then I suggest your delete your hard disk partition, create a new one and install Windows again including all your device drivers (video, audio, network etc.) and latest Windows service pack and your programs.

My dell xps m140 keyboard is making double letters


Letters may be sticky. Did you drop coffee, soda or any liquid on the keyboard? Does the letter key "stick" and come up a second after you release it?
You may need to clean or replace the keyboard. To be on the safe side BEFORE you do it, plug a full size keyboard on the back of your laptop and check if the problem goes away.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

Where are the memory slots on a dell xps m140 laptop?


One memory module, ('Stick') slot is located on the bottom of the laptop, in the Memory Compartment. (Has two Philips screws on the cover, and is located close to the battery release button)

The other memory module goes under the keyboard.

Here's how to replace them from Dell Support,

Dell xps m140 screen goes blank


More like the back light has burned out on the LCD. Not an expensive fix, but time consuming. Almost easier to put in a new LCD (about $60us on Ebay), and is something you can do yourself.

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on


Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.
