I have a Gateway Tablet Pc running XP Tablet Edition that won't boot.
I had a virus the other day and used rkill to stop it and mallwarebytes to get rid of it.
Today I was browsing the web and Ie 6 wasn't responding. I was going to use the task manager to shut it down but decided to turn off the pc as I had a message that windows updates were ready to install. So I did the install updates and shutdown. I then restarted the pc and had an update for java, so I went ahead and installed this update to get to version 6.22 I think. It launched ie to go to the website to check the install and it worked fine.
Since I was doing updates, I decided to do a manual update of Virusscan which worked fine. Then I decided to update my mallware software and run a scan since i had a problem the other day. This upodate updated and installed the latest version and then updated the software after the installl.
I then ran a quick scan with the mallware and it came up negetive.
Right after this the virusscan poped up with a virsu wardning that it detected and deleted something. I am prettry sure it wasn't the type where it said it had to reboot. I went to close the warinig window and the pc shut down.
When I restarted it goes through the initial boot sequence -- reading the system stuff and then there is a cursor blinking in the top left hand side of the screen and no other action.
I found the tablet pc recovery disks and tried to boot from them but no luck. During the boot sequence it appear to read both the hard drive and the dvd drive but nothing but the blinking cursor.
Any help advice would be appreciated...
