Remove the power cord, remove the battery and then remove the CMOS Battery which is normally attached to the motherboard. Most times you will have to disassemble the laptop to get to the cmos battery. Once you remove it let the computer sit for an hour or so and it will forget the date, time and passwords without that cmos battery being in. Put the battery back in after time elapses then see what happens.
To clear the virus, the first thing you need is to find the original discs (CD's) that came with your system.
Second, find a friend that knows how to re-install the OS and let that friend do it if you are not comfortable because it's a lengthy process and you will need to re-install all the original drivers too in order for your system to work properly.
I THINK IF U GOT THESE OS ALREADY INSTALLED HAVE U GOT ENOUGH SPACE TO CARRY ON WITH THE INSTALATION ,TRY FORMATTING UR DRIVES AND TRY SEVICE PACK 2 IF AVAILABLE ,WHY DOES HE WANT ANY OTHER IF U GOT 7 ITS THE BEST OUT SO FAR
From what you say I presume you wish to
put it back to when was supplied. If so, boot your computer and go
into the Bios, select default settings. Re boot your computer with
your system disc in the DVD drive and when the menu asks whether you
want to install a fresh system and format, select fresh system. When
your new system is installed, go to the manufacturers web site and
down load the drivers for your computer then re-boot it. Install
Office and any other periferal software that was supplied with the
computer and there you have a system installed bare PC.
No driver needed, its a laptop HD right? Get an Ebay IDEto laptop IDE adapter for under $10.. hook it to your Desktop pc as a second drive, and whack at it with a few disk format utilities you found on google.. It either will work, or its dead.. If it works, put the OS install files on it, put it back in your laptop and install... Handy things those IDE-laptopide adapters...
