Question about Acer TravelMate 4150LCi Notebook
I have an acer travelmate 4150 that has the lass.exe virus. it did the countdown as i was sanning the cpu for virus once the cpu reset a blue screen came up saying there was a problem and i should scan for virus now the laptop reboots get to acer screen then blue screen flashes win xp logo comes up real quick then reboots again over and over. cant get in through safe mode, cant boot from disk or anything else... what can i do to fix this
Well, viruses- what fun. My advice, download AVG Free 8.0. It is a free virus removal and protection program by Girosoft. This program will get rid of the virus. If the computer begins to shut its self down, then yes, reformatt. But afterwoods, install AVG and keep it gong. You should never have another virus again. And if you do, avg will get rid of it.
Thats just my say.

With the way you are describing this, it is sounding like formatting and reloading may be your only option.
You state that you let it do a countdown (?) and then it starts looping. Is this correct? Can you get to the boot options when it first starts? Or does it just continually loop right from the beginning now?
If this is the case, I would go into the BIOS, set the boot sequence to CD ROM first, HDD second, throw in the restore CD and go from there.
Be warned though, restoring like this will erase everything that is currently on the hard drive,
If there is something in your question I missed, please relist it with any additional information you can provide.

Fdisk /mbr then format the drive and reinstall your operating system.
