|Ok, I've been searching all kinds of forums about the booting process freezing at mup.sys when you select safe mode. I have the same problem, but everyone else seems to be lucky enough to boot to their recovery CDs and fix the problem. For me, I can't boot from any recovery CDs nor any operating system CDs. When I press F8, all of the options there doesn't work, either so I'm thinking that it's hopeless hence I can't do anything about it. Oh, and when I boot normally it gets stuck at the blue screen with the "Microsoft Windows XP" logo (milliseconds before you get to choose the user to login to the computer) and it gets stuck there for a long time. |
When I put an Operating System/Recovery CD in the CD drive and boot, the screen is just black and there is a _ white cursor on the top left corner of the screen as if it was about to do something, but it remains there forever.
Two more things: this started happening after a virus so I'm thinking it's a virus that's causing this to happen and I also have two other "working" computers on the same network just in case if they're needed.
Can anyone please please please help me? If you need anymore info about the computer and/or the issue, please let me know so I can try and provide it.
