Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
I have tried to back up my files but the system isn't functioning at all how should i do with this problem?I think its because my laptops is infected with the worm virus
Obviously, you want to save files from the computer; any files transferred to another system could infect that system.
If you really need those files I would recommend downloading an Ubuntu ISO and burning it to a CD. This gives you to boot to an operating system from a Compact Disc.
Ubuntu Linux has the ability to browse the Windows hard drive, if needed, transfer the files off the partition. You can burn the files from Ubuntu, if you have two Disc Drives, move the files on to a Flash Drive, or you can transfer them across your home network. Beware, this can spread the damage to other systems that do not have active virus protection.
Seriously, you need Norton, McAfee, or AVG Free at the least; these programs can intercept virus like activity as it happens in the memory. Furthermore, a script blocker like Noscript, Ad-aware, or MS Windows Defender can help prevent Spyware/Trojans/Variants from installing when you browse a untrusted site.
Once you have backed up the files you want to save you'll need to use your system recovery disc to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system on your laptop.

Back up everything possible on your hard drive.
If you're experiencing hardware issues, this is a luxury you might not have.
Keep backup files on an alternate data storage system to avoid data loss during hardware problems.
Notice the issue and reproduce it so you're aware of where the symptom manifests itself.
Isolate the problem.
If the system isn't getting power, make sure it's not the power cord or wall outlet before you try a different motherboard.
If everything is trying to run but not actually able to, check for loose parts on the motherboard before you replace it.
Remove all of the hardware that isn't actually necessary to make the computer function before you can narrow down the causes for your problem to the motherboard.
Ensure that all cards and memory units installed on your motherboard are securely in place and that each is making a good connection.
This can be accomplished by removing each component, blowing out the socket with compressed air and replacing the components.
Try another compatible motherboard in your machine once you've eliminated all other potential problems.
If it works with the alternate motherboard, replace the old one.
hope this helps
