A virus must have taken out my operating system. I keep rying to reinstall it but when I press F12 no setup pops up. What can I do?

Well since you can't access your computer using speccy is out of the question, so you could atleast tell us the make or model of your computer or if it's a custom built what components are on it.

 

We don't have your computer at our hand, so we need something to guide ourselves with. Knowing what we are working on really helps. 

 

Also, can you get into the BIOS? Does the computer reboot? Does it freeze? Please expand!

If you can get into the BIOS setup check the ordering of boot up devices, also what is the current message you receive when switching on the computer?

Is this the same system where you dropped the possible malware back in June 2013?

 

Why are you trying to reinstall Windows?

 

System manufacturer and model, please?

Hi everyone. It is a Dell Inspiron. there were no previous problems. One day it was working fine and next day I turn it on and it is saying there is no operating system. I put in the disk for OS and it will not boot up. It will not do anything. It seems like it is reading the disk but nothing happens.

Dell makes a ton of Inspiron models...it would help if you tell us the specific model you have.
