Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook
That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted or deleted during the scan. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different
you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.
Open your internet browser, then download and install MalwareBytes and
run a Quick Scan.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:
"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and
install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the
site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not
click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui
Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or
Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a
QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in
red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text
document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text
document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED
RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it
finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your
If the problem still exists after the above steps then you might try System Recovery or just Reinstalling Windows.
System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point
(date and time) to set your system back to when it was working ok. It
does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or
programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Date you
System Recovery (sometimes referred to as Factory Restore) will set your system back to when you first purchased it. It Deletes Everything. Most times the System Recovery does not work unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive created by the manufacturer. If you are trying to recover from a set of cd's most times it does not work.
Instead of doing a System Recovery it's much easier to just Reinstall Windows. Look on your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what operating system is on your computer and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers) that you will need to activate windows. If you don't have an operating system disk, borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. Just make sure it is the same as your COA Sticker's operating system or it will never activate. Also make sure you get the COA Product Key Code for the disk you borrow because sometimes the system will ask for the one that is on your system and sometimes it will ask for the one from the installation disk.
If you have Windows XP do a Repair Install so you
won't loose your data if you want it. Boot from the operating system
disk in the cd drive, then when it comes up select the option to Install
Windows (don't select R to repair on this screen). Windows will then
ask for you acceptance to the license and you will press F8 to accept.
It will then search your system to see if there is already an existing
windows on the disk. It will find your current operating system and
this is when you will select R to repair the current operating system.
This will allow the system to keep your documents, music, pictures,
data, videos, programs, etc.
