Sounds like you have a problem with your power adapter, battery and or charge port ... I would suggest you let the unit "charge" overnight and try again.

I cannot get rid of pceu virus on a windows xp pro fujitsu desktop because it has disabled safe mode and I do not have the windows xp cd to reinstall windows and the cd/dvd drive does not work .


Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

Tips how to remove a virus that can not be handled Anti-virus

There is a very powerful tips to remove the virus, if the various Anti Virus that we use entirely powerless against it (probably only detect, but can not delete it). To do this would require a Bootable CD that contains a minimum of the File Manager program, such as Ultimate Boot CD, BartPE, and the like. Some programs are DOS-based and others are windows based. Or we could use a Linux Live CD, like Knoppix, Ubuntu Live CD and others. In General, the following steps:
  1. Find the location of the virus, especially the origin of the virus is running on your computer (the host)
  2. Once obtained, note (note) information such as file size, date (although the virus can change the size and date, but most always the same size and date. Can find similar files and recorded their location.
  3. Once obtained, use one of the Bootable CD and restart the computer to boot from a CD (you might need his first set its BIOS to first boot the CD / DVD-ROM).
  4. Open the file manager program, which is available. If using windows NT, XP or above, make sure the program supports reading NTFS format
  5. Find the file / virus and delete or if still in doubt, just rename from *. exe to *. VRS example. To convince, use the search facility to find files with the same size or nearly the same date. If found , you can rename it.
  6. Back restart the computer and check again

My System is affected by virus.when i format the total hard drive still it can run within some days.how 2 remove this virus manually or help 2 format the drive using any bootable software...plz...


I suggest booting from a bootable cdrom disk, instead of a floppy disk, USB drive, etc. Everything except the cdrom can quite easily become infected with a virus just by plugging it into the computer. You MUST create the bootable cdrom from a KNOWN clean computer! If you try to create one from the infected system, you can almost be assured you will only create an infected cdrom!

If you don't have a way of creating a bootable cdrom, try booting your system from your Windows installation cd / dvd. Do a complete format before the install and then SHUT DOWN the computer! Do NOT just reboot and continue with the installation of the OS. Viruses are "memory resident" in that they load themselves up into RAM when the computer boots and will remain there until the machine does a complete shut down. I recommend you shutdown (i.e., turn off the computer) and restart the machine a couple of times AFTER doing the format to be assured that the virus is eradicated.

Once you are satisfied the virus no longer exists, you can go ahead with a new install of the OS. The FIRST thing to do before loading ANY of your personal files back onto the computer is to install a virus scanning software -- and make sure it is active and the virus pattern files are current. After scanning the hard drive for problems and finding none, can you go ahead with the installation / restore of your personal files.

Chances are pretty good that the reason the computer runs OK for a couple of days and then the virus reappears is that a file you have installed or copied over from your backup is infected. Each time you launch the program / file, the virus gets installed and the cycle starts again.

The problem is due to System startup failure. It could be due to many reasons like abruptly shutting down the system, Services not starting, Malware or trojans infection, Corrupt Hard drive, corrupt system files,etc.

Method 1 :

Select "last known good configuration that works"
Check it it can get you to your Desktop.
Reboot the system,everything will be fine.

Method 2 : Start your system by pressing F8 upon startup.
Select "Safe boot"
Check if it can get you to your Desktop.
Now, Click Windows startup button
Select "All programs"
Select "Accessories"
Select "System tools"
Select "System Restore"
and try to restore the system in an ealier point.
your system will reboot now and check if it works fine now.

Method 3 : 
Download "Hiren's Boot CD"
Below is the link
http://hirens.longcomputerservices.com/Hirens.BootCD.10.1.zip
Extract the zip file using Winzip or Winrar.
Burn the ISO image file with Nero or PowerISO in a CD.
Boot the system using that CD ( Set your BIOS to boot from CD-DVD Drive)
Select "Windows XP Mini" upon startup.
Use tools that are available in the CD

It will most probably solve your problem.
If the problem still persists Use can always Backup your important files using that CD to an external USB Drive or to any Network Share location.

That's it.

Antivirus System PRO virus.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

Purchase a flash drive (a cdrom will not work for this) and back-up your data on the thumb drive. I would recommend an 8 gig as to fit all your files.

Place the flash drive in the new computer and scan it immediately with the Norton.

By the way, there is one great software that will save the old computer and it only cost 30 dollars. I use it to kill this Rogue on all my customers computers and it takes me 10 minutes to get rid of it. Definetly worth the purchase!

You will need a bootable antivirus solution to clean the viruses off of the machine if it's that bad, or at least that is the easiest way I know of.

Look, here is the real deal, your PC when booted to the hard drive into windows OS has what are called OS protected files. That means that even the best scanner will not remove it totally from the machine while booted in Windows OS.

When you use a bootable AV solution it runs the OS from the CD, then when you are scanning the drive for those little nasties, it can be remove, because the OS on the drive is not protecting them.

However be aware when using this method, that any files can and will be removed!!! The way I look at it, if it's a virus I don't want it on my hard drive! period! Then once the virus is removed format and reinstall the OS. Sorry to hear about your Recovery Partition!

There are ways to make these yourself, but if you don't know what your doing, relax Bart has you covered!

Check that out, that should fix you up. Yeah I know this is not a free solution, but one I know will work!

I cant identify the prolem


It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
