Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
So i've had this laptop for about 1.5 years and it just started doing this. I would work on it and all of a sudden the HDD would just turn off. I would be like Double U Tee Eff and then it would start back up again. It was fine and dandy. Not the perfect experience, but it was working. Well after a couple times of doing that it started doing it and then not restarting at all. I thought it could've been a virus, since my friend's laptop developed the same symptoms at about the same time, but i couldn't explain how a virus will work like that even outside of windows... it would not let the HDD start up even at the bios level :( Give me some leads pleeze rathersmart is offline Reply With Quote my computer started malfunctioning about a week ago i don't know what happened but in that same time frame my Norton 360 subscription finished and i had no more protection . At first when i turned it on it would load but nothing would show on the screen and the keyboard and mouse didn't work then one time it it just miraculously started loaded then i saw the screen load to BIOS then it wouldn't load past BIOS then i stopped seeing the screen again then it worked i was soo happy cause it loaded al the way to the log in screen then it shut down. so i started moving faster this time i logged in then it just shutdown after 4 mins or so i need help please anyone helpme please ~.:Djsmog:.~ mail me at email@example.com
Get the avgantivrus program and run this is a free version download vis pc and transfer the exe to the laptop and run to install run it as soon as you can then you might be able to save all files out using safemode once all files are removed use your installation cd or recovery cd and re-do operating system from scratch.
best of luck
