Question about Computers & Internet
So, my friend got a virus on his laptop. So he gave it to me, when I loaded it up, it froze at the startup. When I press Tab, Esc, and F8 repeatedly the BIOS loads and asks for a password. But when I press certain keys like; o i a z u p It doesn't register anything. Some more keys don't work, but I have no clue how this happened. Because before the virus, everything was working fine (as he puts it). Could I get some help?

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice
Select safe mode with networking to download
A CMOS BIOS password recovery tool
Editors note: This tool should only be used by experienced computer users. Please see the enclosed read me if you would like to run it from Windows. Failure to follow instructions (from Windows) will cause your anti-virus to flag this as a virus.

What make/model of computer? What operating system? What BIOS type/version/revision?
There IS a way to reset it without losing the data on the drive. It sounds like he has set up a password in the system BIOS or either password protected an entire volume in Win 200x/Vista.
If he has set a BIOS pw, you can remove the batteries and jumper the CMOS reset pin for a few seconds...IF you can get to it. If you can determine the BIOS name/version, I can probably put you onto a boot diskette that will clear the BIOS.
For 3 bucks, I'll send the boyfriend a virus!!! lol
