XP BIOS problem.

October 3, 2010 at 12:40:07
Specs: Windows XP

When turning on my computer it shows the windows XP screen where you can press F8 F12 etc. and after that simply shows a black screen.
I tried booting from safe mode but all i get is lines of text like multi(0)disk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\System32\BATTC.SYS and any of the other F8 option just result in a black screen.
i also tried repairing XP from the disk but when i go into BIOS to change the boot order all i get is "please enter file name for new bios" and a flashing underscore.
I am running XP home professional and a few weeeks ago i had a fake "anti virus" Virus but cleaned it out.
I don't care about losing data i'd just like my pc back.
Thanks in advance.

Don't know any of your specs, PC or laptop etc.

Do you have a floppy drive ?

Is it a recovery CD or XP CD?

Even though you can't get into the Bios, have you tried booting off the CD.

please enter file name for new bios
