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.

To do a clean Windows install, put in the Windows CD and press any key to boot from CD on start up then follow the prompts to install Windows. Right before choosing where to install it, opt to format the drive so that you have a clean install.

Another option is to use the restoration disc that came with your laptop and restore the computer to the factory settings. To do this, put the CD in and on the boot up screen press the F key showed on the bottom of the screen for System Restore.

My notebook (aspire one D150-1Br) was infected with viruses


If your system is less than 6 month old or under warranty, then please contact Acer support they will sent you the copy of acer recovery management, try visiting this URL http://support.acer.com/

there are options to clear the virus from your computer without formating. Do you get any software download request, or Do you have any virus name available?

Hello !
You have said that you have done installation and Harddisk are not recognised this is a indication of damaged Harddisk ie its registry is bad or its not working .
I recomend a new Harddisk then you will able to use your laptop
Before you change the harddisk you should check the IDE cables by swapping them coz sometimes they could be faulty, connect new cable to the harddisk then on it try installation again .

Good luck
