Originally I posted my malware/trojan problem in this thread as I thought I was a simple victim of the google redirect virus and other tiny annoyances
It also mentions how I could not provide a gmer log on account of the computer crashing every time I ran the program. An error log is provided in the thread as a replacement.
However while surfing the net my computer suddenly slowed down, developed a black screen then rebooted itself. After the HP splash screen I get a black screen with a blinking cursor. Here are the steps I tried to fix it.
1. Hitting F8 (for safe mode) just generates single beeps (one for every button press)
2. Hitting F11 (System Recovery 11) just gets system beeps as well (one for every button press)
3. Checked RAM sticks to see if they're working. Both the ram and the ram slots are working fine
4. Do not own a vista start up disc on account I bought a laptop and the OS was already installed in the system.
OS: Windows Vista
Laptop Model: HP Pavillion dv6500
