    Try unplugging all the USB devices. Only connect the Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor and Power and try turning on the computer. Let me know if you get anything different.

I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

Computer got a virus called MS Removal Tool and wont allow us to do anything on the computer. the computer is a compaq presario cq62-209wm


Restart the computer. If you are already in Windows, you can do this from the Windows Start menu, go to Turn off computer and click Restart. As the computer restarts, watch for a progress bar at the bottom of the screen. press F8 about once every second. Immediately press F8 before the progress bar reaches the right side of the screen. From the Windows Start-up menu, highlight Safe Mode and press Enter. Wait for your desktop to appear, and then make the necessary repairs (for example, uninstall programs or devices ). Where the only thing that are working are the keyboard, mouse and files
hope this helps

You can try booting into Safe Mode to see if the problem persists. You do this by pressing/tapping 'F8' when you see the bios screen while the computer is starting up.

you've got a corrupted file most likely,

but thus your computer managed to boot up before this thing show up on screen?

If yes try to go to safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots up then go to recovery or restore setting to earlier time before this thing happen.

If it does able to boot up after pressing the power then you'll have no choice but to reformat your hard drive, you can do this if you have other computer where you can attach your hardrive, but if none, much be better to bring it to service center

Getting out of the initial set up


First try to Boot to Last Known Good Configuration.. do this by pressing F8 upon bootup...look at the prompt screen for the option mentioned OR

Attempt to boot up in Safe Mode....
Do This by pressing F8 Upon bootup, it will take you to a black Safe Mode Options screen... once there choose the first option.. boot into Safe Mode Only.. If you are able to boot into windows that way,, you can then check for problems... Like checking the device manager for errors, Check the Status of your hard drive.. etc.

Compaq Computer


when the pc is powering up, keep pressing F8 to get into safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter for a reboot. This should get you running, if not restart again pressing F8, but this time select start windows in safe mode and whilst in safe mode select the administrator account and try doing a system restore to a date before you tried loading the programe, and let the pc re boot, and hopefully you are now ok.
