Hello. I am posting on here for the first time and hoping someone can help me out or lead me in the right direction. I own a Lenovo S-10 and my wife was browsing the internet and went to Dictionary.com. In doing so something odd occurred and it locked the computer. (To me it seemed like it was a virus). I restarted the computer by holding the power button down and restarting and now all I can do is get to the start up screen but it will not allow me to boot up in XP. It goes to a black screen with a cursor at the top left that just blinks. If I hit any button I get beeped at.
I have tried to to start the computer in safe mode by hitting F8 as well as the one key recovery and neither have worked. I made the mistake of never creating backup disks (that will never happen again) so now I need some guidance as to how to go about getting my computer functional again.
Thank you in advance for your help and time.
