Hi All, Hope you can help.... Have a E- machine laptop with win 7 that a friend of mine asked me to have a look at. Seems she was playing a game on it when the anti-virus indicated something...notice didn't stay long enough to react, but it stated something of a virus. The screen went blank, then the Bios splash screen with E-machine logo appeared with the select F2 & F12 key options. My problem is windows will not boot, any attempt to try booting in safe mode does not work. I have tried using a boot recovery disk. From what I can tell from the memory diagnostics...it is not seeing an OS on the hard drive. I tried repair, also restoring to previous date. not having much luck. Anyone have suggestions. I would appreciate the help. I am not Advanced user, but have some knowledge.
