Download The following iso listed
below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need
to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like
the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner.
It should fix you right up.
Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's
different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't
boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it
just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper
left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot
menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to
the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.
At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.
I think your Windows installation is damaged. Boot from your operating system CD. (Go into setup mode F2 or delete during bootup. Go to the Boot select screen and set up to boot from CD. Place your OS CD in the drive and power on.) When it boots, it should give you the option of REPAIR. Select this and allow Windows to repair itself. I hope this helps you resolve your problem.

The only easy check I can suggest is on the memory. Flip your notebook so that the bottom is facing up. Locate a small panel (with 1 or 2 screws) roughly 3X3in. Inside would be 1 or 2 memory strips held in place by 2 retaining clips, one on each side. Moving the clips slightly away from the memory would free the memory strip and partially spring up. It can now be easily removed. With a pencil eraser, clean/rub on the little gold contacts at the bottom. The slot where they mate with their holder could also be cleaned with an old toothbrush.
If the above does not correct the errors, then perhaps you are better off seeking the services of a qualified professional since the unit may have to be opened up and diagnosis performed on its various components.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
