Hi Guys, I'm wondering if anyone can please help. I have a Sony Vaio laptop. Yesterday it got what looked like a malware infection. I rkilled it and started to run an anti-malware programme. Unbeknowingly in my annoyance at the infection, I failed to spot I had pulled the power cable out with my chair and it wasn't charging. It went dead. On switching on again, it won't boot up or give me any options. All I get is a white flashing hyphen in the top left corner on a black screen. Tried taking battery out etc but not sure how to get a screen to actually allow me to do anything. Please please can anyone help as it's driving me mad - has my CV on it (yes which I hadn't backed up on external hard drive) and I'm desperately looking for new work. Not in IT you'll be pleased to hear!!
