If you have the original recovery disc, then I would re-install your operational system to fix the problem, or you can check www.ebay.com sellers offer software recovery, but keep in mind that cd/dvd must be able boot first otherwise the software won't work.

Remove the battery and the AC adapter, drain the power by pressing the start button for 10 seconds and then put the battery back in and the AC adapter.

After you do that, to clear the virus follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

Antivirus wont turn on in settings


Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.

My computer worked fine until one day I attempted to turn it on and it said operating system not found. What happened? Can this be fixed?


This error message could be caused by :-
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard disk
If not the hard disk may be faulty or needs reseating. If the hard disk is faulty it needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk.
A virus program may have infected the computer and removed or changed some system files - in this case Windows needs to be repaired OR Windows re-installed - this is the best option.

There could be several things wrong but with the information provided, I am going to say that you have a virus and/or spyware. Run a complete scan on system with both antivirus and spyware remover. Rid of all spyware. If you have Limewire, delete it and reboot. This should stop the computer from rebooting.

Rebooting


That's the answer, I think, hold down the power button firmly until the laptop shuts off, then release and press again to turn on. Some desktops are like this, they have no reset button.

Most like the viruses corrupted the operating system, and you will need to reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. Try this and let me know.
