Specs: Vista Home, 1 gig of ram
Hi ,

Was hoping I could post some pics here to make this easier but I will explain as best as possible . My computer got infected with a virus and when I rebooted the the screen is covered in dollar signs and the bios info is all mispelled ( sound crazy yet )

Tried safe mode but just hangs on the vista screen with no start button or anything else.

Tried the reinstall cd , gets as far as installing and then just hangs , so now everytime I try to reboot and start over it just keeps hanging .

Also set the bios to default , took out battery from mb and shorted the cmos jumper as well , any help appreciated.

You try erasing the entire partition along with the master boot record? You could have gotten a boot loader Virus and for something like this you are going to prob have to use a program called kill disc to delete the partition and overwrite the drive with 1's and 0's.

O.k thanks , I will try that out and see what happens , I think this may have something to do with the BIOS as well though.

Thanks for your suggestion
