Hi,
My Name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. Are you seeing any flash of Blue Screen before it reboots? If not it sounds like you have a boot virus. If you can't boot to Safe Mode best the way to fix this is to pull out the hard drive and put it into another computer that has up to date Antivirus. On the hard drive are pins with a little plastic piece attached to them above that should be a diagram SL = Slave, MS = Master, CS = Cable Select. Depending on the Setting the persons harddrive that is in the computer you are about to put that Hard Drive into depends on the setting you need for your Hard Drive. So remember or right down the setting of your hard drive. If there hard drive is set to Master set your hard drive to slave. If there hard drive is set to Cable Select set yours to Calbe select. With the computer off and unplugged, locate the cable that the hard drive is connected to and take your hard drive and connect it to the second connector which is in the middle of the cable. This is where all slave hard drives go. Note: Dont worry you wont infect the host computer with a virus, because its not an active partition. <--- techy info... Now boot the computer and once the Hard Drive is detected run the Antivirus program on that drive.

There are other solutions, but this is one way you can remove the virus without having to format your computer and start over. If its a Blue Screen please make a post with blue screen issues so that we can figure out exactly what the error is.

When you turn on your computer press F8 for the startup options and choose Safe Mode. When the computer enters Safe Mode run another system scan and then restart. If you are unable to enter your account again, try to do a System Restore (Start\All Programs\Accessories\System) to a date before the infection happened and then do another full system scan.

Starting point would be to turn the computer right off including taking out the battery unplug the power supply wait a while and then reconnect power supply and restart holding down the key that allows you to enter the BIOS. Reset the BIOS to default settings and then restart. If this works then reinsert the battery and hopefully this will fix your problem.

Your computer has likely gotten a virus which is causing this to happen. This post in a bleepingcomputer.com forum lists several ways to remove it. Once you get the computer to start up again, download the free version of Malwarebytes' AntiMalware program. Run it and let it scan your computer. It's a very effective program to clean out bad software.

Hope you're back up and running soon. Thanks for using Fixya!

Your user account is corrupt. First try logging in with a different user ID. If you can't do that, then reinstall Windows.

System won't log on


try safe mode. If it works, use system restore to go back to a previous working configuration. If safe mode does not work, try the last known-good configuration. Restart the computer, then as soon as the Dell logo shows up on the screen, press the F8 key repeatedly until you enter the Advanced Options Menu. Use the arrow keys to select Last Known-Good Configuration, then press Enter.
