Hi, I've got an HP Pavilion 753n running XP that I've had for around eight years, and this is the first major problem I've ran into that I haven't been able to fix myself. When I push the power button, the computer comes on, beeps, and begins to boot up. It shows a black screen with white text rolling down, and then it beeps again, and restarts. It keeps doing this until I turn it off. I can't get into safe mode, or anything else for that matter.
Before this started happening, I'd been having trouble with a virus I couldn't seem to get rid of. I ran all the scans, did everything I could think of. I might have gotten a little over zealous and deleted some required Windows files or something, I'm not sure, but this restarting thing began happening immediately after I deleted a bunch of stuff.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
