I had a virus on my USB which I suspect has infected my PC, as it was running slowly. The anti virus didn't find anything, so 

 

I used MSCONFIG and checked "start in safe mode" (it wouldn't let me enter safe mode during startup using F8 or any other key)

Now it gets as far as the option to enter bios (which I can do), then it gives me a black screen with the number "0" in the bottom right corner

 

I have the windows installation DVD, created a boot USB by downloading windows 7 64 bit home premium and with using ISO software,(tested both on other computers, they work) - but no avail

 

I set the bios to boot from CD / DVD and USB first - it turns the lights on the CD drive and then the USB drive, but after a few moments goes back to the black screen with the "0".......

 

Hoping anyone can give me some insight in to what to do next?

 

Thanks!

Hello and Welcome,

The only thing I could find regarding a 0 at the bottom right of the screen related to Intel boards. Does your screen have a underscore after the 0?

Your Welcome

From looking through the threads, it looks like some kind of graphics card related issue. I assume this is a desktop, correct?
