|My computer had a virus infected in BIOS and sometime making funny noise. The virus normally prevent the BIOS from detecting IDE drives.|
I have tried to do the following actions shown below but still did not stop the virus.
- Run the Avira Rescue CD and scan for viruses and other security threats. Results shown no viruses found.(With update before scan)(Scan whole system)
- Reinstall Windows XP Home Edition(with format)
Description of the virus: The viruses sometime prevent the BIOS from detecting IDE drives. By preventing the BIOS from detecting IDE drives, it make funny noise. This happen 95% of the time. Even through I disconnect the network, this still happen. When the virus happen, I am not able to do anything other than Memory test.(Not even run the Boot From CD and run the setup of the BIOS). When I manage to start the operating system sometime, the virus will run sometime. When the virus is making noise when my OS is started, I am not able to do anything. My computer started to freeze. If the noise and the virus run too long sometime, it will show a Blue Screen error showing that process ended suddenly.
Computer system information:
I am using Phoenix - AwardBIOS V6.00PG
Main processor: Intel Pentium(R) 4.2.80GHz(133x21.0)
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
Antivirus: Avira Prem. Security Suite
I ran the boot from cd to run the avira rescue cd that day when there is no noise at that time. The virus is becoming worse these days.
What can I do to stop the virus?
