first off you have a choice you can either run virus scan to attempt to remove it from with in safe mode
format the HDD assuming it isn't your primary OS drive
or reinstall the whole OS
we will start with safe mode
so whilst the pc is still in start up (POST) rapidly press f8
this will take you through to a start up menu choose safe mode at the top.
once booted up log in and run antivirus software such as bitdefender/avast/avg and others. I recommend avast (personal preference) if nothing Is found look for more in depth for a better anti virus program.
formatting will technically remove a virus from a HDD but if you format your OS your screwed and it is unlikely that a virus will install itself to your second drive so ignore this. (don't even attempt to format)
this is a last resort if you cant solve it.
borrow or create a live cd/dvd/usb OS boot the computer into this and then install the OS if you are using windows, use your recovery disk that no one makes and if you didn't make one contact your laptop/PC manufacturer as they should have one for a fee
1.FIRST YOU DO ONE THING IF YOU USING XP OS MEANS CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO IDE OTHER WISE CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO AICH. 2.IF BOOT WITH CD MEANS CHANGE BOOT PRIORITY CD/DVD ROM 2.IF YOU BOOT WITH HDD MEANS CHOOSE HDD. BIOS OPTION----CONTINUOSLY PRESS F2 KEY.
when it restart press F8 buttton thenenter in enable vga mode then if u able to see screen then no problem . But if still face problem try to dleete all partition and create new partition then format c then check .
Boot from the Windows XP CD. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console Select your OS and enter password (if needed)
When you reach the command prompt type the following and then press Enter:
expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.
If you're prompted to overwrite the file, press Y.
Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.
If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.
You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.
Things to Check When No boot... 1. Have you connected all the power cable? 2. Do you see any display?(including the power lights glowing) 3. Does the screen show you any blue screen error message? 4. Do you hear any beep noises? 5. Have you tried to install any third party hardware or software? 6. What do you think could have caused the issue?
