Encountered a virus and in cleaning it up I screwed up something else. I may have deleted drivers related to display. Screen works fine until starts loading Windows. How do I reload drivers? Basically, screens turns off at end of bootup.

Do you have a Windows disk or recovery disks that came with your computer? What is the make and model of your computer?
