Re: My computer is not booting, I've researched and
You may want to start asking about the motherboard if the socket is bad on the motherboard then the hard drive will not be able to read. ask a tech to take your hard drive and hook it up in another pc and see if it works if it does then you might need to replace the mother board

You seem to have done all the right things. Although I don't like 'any viruses have been removed' - I wonder what they might have done? Sounds like you sometimes get into Safe Mode. If you can do that once, then go try and get into System Restore and return to an older verdsion before things went wrong. Then re-boot.
Otherwise it may be faults developed in Windows itself. Most OEM installations have a protected copy of Windows on a hidden sector. Maybe get in touch with makers/suppliers and ask how to access it?
This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

The first step that should be taken is to shut down the laptop. This can most likely be done by holding the power butting down for 10-15 seconds. The next step is to restart the PC and see what happens. If it boots up correctly than this have have been just a one time issue. If after restarting the laptop it will not boot than some trouble shooting steps should be taken. When
starting the PC your getting power? If not than there is an issue with the
power supply or battery. If you are getting power to the PC than you should listen
for the beep code on start up. 1 beep after starting the computer
signifys that the power on self test (Also known as the POST) has
completed with out issue. When getting any other type of beep code you
should research the meaning of the code. Beep codes differ from company
to company. The best way to identify the meaning of a beep code is to
type the manufacture, model and number of beeps into Google. Another
possible issue is that your hard drive is corrupt. If this is the case
than your computer will pass the power on self test(POST) but will have a
message like MBR not found or one of many other errors. If you are
getting an error than it is also a good idea to research the error to
determine the proper fix. If the PC seems to boot correctly but there is
no image on the screen than the issue may be a result of a bad video
card. In that case the video card will need to be replaced.
I hope that information above has helped is some way. If possible please rate this solution.
usually at starting up the computer, press either esc, F2 Or Delete.
this has to be done immediately at the computers boot.
there is with certain bioses, a display at boot up, i.e for setup options press F2 Or Delete et,c.
Be careful what you change in the settings, only change what you have to, or make a written note of what you,ve changed, incase you have to correct any errors.
Well hate to give you the bad news but it sounds like your hard drive as died. The error code you mentioned (0X000000ED) designates file system damage. (Referenced here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185). Your best solution would be to replace the hard drive in a repair shop.
