Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This is a brand new virus that is not even a month old. It gets in the system and takes over the "boot" procedure for computers. When you boot up, you are presented with a black screen and white letters asking for a password. Any passowrd that you enter gives you this answer: Password:X It almost looks like a bios password but cannot be bipassed because you cannot get into the bios.

I have had seven computers this week in my shop and here is how we resolved the issue:

Reset CMOS: For your laptop, you will need to take the battery out (battery on motherboard) for ten minutes and then replace. Boot up and you should be able to get back in. (the battery can be found on the back of computer. Unplug, flip over and unscrew the door(s) to find battery) It looks like a little watch battery, round.

Once you are in, Uninstall your current antivirus (it is hijacked and will need to be reinstalled after this process).

Download Kaspersky's free trial here and install (this will remove the new virus)

Run a scan on entire computer, getting rid of all malware, spyware and trojans.

I also highly recommend purchasing and installing Spyhunter from Engima. It cost $30.00. (They do offer a free download but it scans, shows you the infections and that's all. You must pay to remove) I highly recommend this tool as it has saved me many "working" hours removing viruses.

Reboot the computer after the scan and it will be all gone.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

    What operating system are you running?

    The only other way is to reformat the computer.

    You could try running a Linux Live CD (see if it get's you into a workable enviroment), such as ubuntu and scanning the entire drive. If the CD will boot.

    I am not sure what your resources are but if you have another computer, you can slave the hard drive and scan it clean.

    Then it has to be a legit bios:

Try doing a master reset by holding down the Home button (the button at the bottom with the square), and the power button at the top of the phone down at the same time until the power off command comes on, but keep holding until you see the apple logo come on then let go. This is a master reset. Then try charging it. let me know how that goes.

There is a password when i open thmy laptop..

If it normally starts up and goes directly to the desktop then you may not have a password set. When prompted after standby then do not enter anything for the password.
