Don't need to change the motherboard to remove a virus infection. In fact, this won't solve your problem. The virus is on the hard disc drive.

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

Brightness contro indicator keeps appearing on screen for no reason Fn+F3 have not been working for very long

Hello Lombardy,

Weird behavior on a laptop nearly ALWAYS indicates a broken motherboard or a virus infection.

If it is the motherboard, you will have to replace the laptop.

If it is a virus, please download a good antivirus package (MBAM or HITMAN PRO) and run it several times to clean the infection.

Good luck!

My cd drive wont recognize the mcafee disk to clean the spyware infection on my laptop

See if your disk will read in another system. If it will, we know the disk isn't the issue.
Try reading a different disk in your system. If your system will read a different CD, we know the drive isn't defective.
If neither the CD nor the drive is defective, then this very well could be because the infection itself is causing the issue.
Try booting in safe mode (press F8 repeatedly as the operating system first starts to boot and choose safe mode) and see if the disk will read then.

If the disk still won't read, check for contaminants on the CD and the drive lens.

My computer is acting strange, it is constanly freezing and i am constanly having to restart it. it is very very slow also. will resetting it to factory settings fix this, if so how do i do it?

if the problem is a software related one, then it's better if you first go through some best practices for ensuring PC security from virus and malware infection. See if this solves the problem. Usually going through these best practices will solve any slowdowns or freezeups... of course, assuming these freezeups aren't a result of a program you recently installed. If you can pinpoint the time when your computer became unstable, and this coincides with a program you installed, then you'll have to uninstall the program and that should solve your freezeups problem.
If it doesn't, you may be facing a FSB controller chip failure, that controls the work of the PC. See if your laptop has some symptoms of motherboard failure due to FSB chip issues.
The motherboard repair is the last option, so make sure you eliminate the software potential problems like virus infections or any programs and updates you recently installed.

Audio in my laptop is continuously going on and off?iam using lenovo laptop

Hello, If this has not been happening before,maybe you just noticed it, then you can only think of this as a result of infection on your system, it can be a virus, trojan horse, malware etc. What you can do is to scan your system thoroughly with a good anti-virus to remove any infections,note that the anti-virus must be updated before it is used

My acer turns off as soon as it turns on. I changed the battery and now it stays on but the screen is black and the light for the motherboard does not light up ?? nothing happens

Check status of your grab loader,it may be due to grab loader failure.
Also check the ststus of your windows,they might have corrupted.
Also scan your system for virus infection.
Due to virus infection, fan speed might have gone changed,which can lead to overheating and rise the processor temp.
Hence check your fan speed and processor temp also through BIOS.
You can control fan speed through BIOS.

Your laptop is infected by the viruses that's why you are getting blue screen. To fix this problem you need to format your laptop. Get a windows cd and the motherboard installer.
