Hi everyone, first post,
Here is the situation, I am running XP Home SP2 on my dell insipiron 8100, and i had just deleted a number of spyware from the computer. I then also updated (Windowsupdate.microstoft.com) the OS. It took a very long time as it appeared to back up everything (I already had sp2 installed i think).
On the boot up it shows the dell logo and then goes to a flashing dash in the top left of the screen
I have tried holding F2, F10, R, Del, Esc ...... and nothing has happened. I also tried using a XP boot disk but to no avail. The disk seens to boot up and it looks as if it is being acessed, but it never gets beyond the flashinig dash.
I have gone through http://forums.pcw.co.uk/thread.jsp?forum=7...&message=204476
and the mircosoft support site, and I have found nothing.
I dont think i did any physical damage to it as it just restarted it after updating, and it just died.
If anyone has any idea I would be very gracious if you could help me.
Thanks everyone in advance!
