I don't know what happend. I have a compaq nx6310 laptop windows xp sp.2 . I caught a virus so I decided to boot to safe mode to make sure my system is clean. When laptop booted, I pressed F8 as usual, but it didn't go to safe mode, it went to "freeDos kernel version 1.1.35 , etc. "" , I don't know what to type, it seems i cannot type anything. I don't even know what that is, can somebody pls help me? I just need to go back to normal boot and I don't know how. I don't have my original boot disk , how can I get back to normal mode? what do I type? I pressed F10 for set up but I don't know how to go from there. It keeps on going on a loop.

Srry but I know very little about computers. To clarify this is what was on the loading screen F9= Dos boot F10= Set up . When I start the laptop it goes on to " Loading command set" then " FreeDos Kernel version 1.1.35...etc, and a long list of commands. At the very end I was able to make a C:/ appear and now I can type but I don't know what to type?

FreeDOS is a separate operating system...it is not part of XP (and DOS is part of Win 9x operating systems, but not XP).

I don't know any more than what I've stated :thumbsup:.
