The common fix that most people try,,

  • Unplug the power,
  • Remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Then reattach the power and attempt a boot.
  • Just shutdown, put the battery back in and reboot
Try also to see if it boots to an external monitor

It sounds like the virus did something to the boot sector of your hard drive. Once you have been infected with a virus, it's usually too late to install an anti-virus program to clean your computer.

If you have your Windows installation CDs or a recovery disc, you could attach your hard drive as a second drive to a computer that already has a good anti-virus program installed, and wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows.

Good luck!

Just bought a hp mini and now has a virus infection. What do we do??


If its possible to burn disc, back the essential data first.
Dont use flash memory/USB device for this purpose. Virus spreads though them easily.

If the infection is small, u might be able to install some good antivirus software like McAfee or Kaspersky [my suggestion] and do a complete scan.

If the antivirus virus fails, the only way out is to re install the operating system. Backup the data first...

After reinstallation u still need antivirus software.
Donot open any drives further.
Install it from a CD.
then erase all drives except C drive[where u installed ur OS]- full erase by right clicking on the drive icon and selecting format option [dont perform quick erase]
Then do a scan to remove any malicious items...

Read this again b4 u proceed. All the best...
Hope this helped

HP mini 1000 with a blank screen


Mini PCs, aka Netbooks often use solid state memory, which breaks down after a time, and can become unusable, especially if you're not shutting down properly. It tends to last just fine, if you power up and down normally, but after, say, over a year of use, flashdrives and other solid state memory cores will corrupt or lose data. You may have to have the information on the disk recovered.
I checked and your Netbook comes with either an 8, 16, or 32 GB solid-state drive, or a hard-disc drive ranging from 60 to 160 GB. Hard discs can also be temperamental if they get banged around a lot. It's a hard decision, because solid state can handle abuse, but degrades, while the magnetic discs degrade slower, but can't handle too many bumps. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer, and see if they can find the problem. It may simply be a problem with windows. Your machine may run Windows XP or Mi, the latter of which is based on Linux.
DON'T take the battery out. Only take the battery out, if you're using the machine while plugged in, unless the battery needs charging. Leaving the battery in all the time can shorten the life of the battery. The machine needs to always have a power supply, especially for the solid state memory to not degrade.
My honest solution is to give it some time to start up: however long it needs, but if it takes more than an hour, it's not really an easily fixable solution, and will require manufacturer action, or replacement.

How do i flash bios on my 2400 Dell Dimension


Your sister has a vivid imagination. Changing the memory and flashing the BIOS will chane nothing.

If you want to start from scrath then reformat the hard drive and reinstall the system but as you probably don't have a system backup disc this will prove impossible for you.

Your best bet is take it to your local PC shop (I don't mean the mainstream ones) and they will be able to restore your system.

You've learned a valuble lesson the hard way here. Always have a good antivirus programme installed, make sure it is up to date and do a full scan on a regular basis.

304w hp wont load


Try pulling the plug from the back of the machine or the wall and then plug it back in and see if it will come up. It may be stuck in what I call a voltage loop. You can also try re-seating the card and memory and making sure the cable from the monitor is connected firmly.
If it doesn't do anything it is possible that either the video card is going bad, the power supply is failing, memory is bad or possibly the motherboard is shot.
Let me know if I can help any further.

Cheers
