I recently have that kind of problem just a few days ago... I suspected a new virus... I scanned the hard disk but didn't find any maybe its new... so I have made a back-up of the files in it (burn them on a CD/DVD) then re-installed the entire system... so far my computer works fine now. You could try the "system restore" to fix the problem but if it doesn't work. I think the only way is to re-install it, just don't forget to get all your important files.

"BOOTMGR is missing. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL.


If your first Boot order is CD/DVD then there might be two chances that why your pc is not booting from your DVD
1. May be the ISO which you downloaded is not working , I mean that is not a bootable ISO. you can confirm it by trying same DVD in other PC. If it works there then fine if not then you know the answer.
2. If your DVD is fine after trying in other computer then your DVD drive is not reading your DVD,It can happen because of DVD drive lens is poor and you need to clead it with DVD lens cleaner DVD.

Laptop will not start,


looks as though your hard drive is u/s Try and see if it is visible in the bios pages, if not replace it. Bios being, when you switch on you press f2, or ctl-alt.del or just del key. This puts you into the BIOS which tells the computer what it can and cannot do. The 1st page should have your hard drive listed, if not then replace it.

Mouse pointer is fixed


Improper boot media means it's not seeing your hard drive. Check hard drive ribbons and power connectors. Your hard drive might have failed if the ribbons and power connectors are installed properly.

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

Can't swich on laptop after restarting it.


You have a non-bootable CD in the CD drive and the startup sequence is looking at the CD drive before the hard drive. Remove the CD and you should be able to boot.
