My son has killed his computer and I am not sure if it can be saved from home or not.

I would say he somehow got a virus and its done this.

When we power on his computer we get the windows logo with the options to go to the Setup and Boot menus.

We can not get to Safe Mode.

We can not get anything to happen when we try to boot from OS or CD. I can get into DOS but nothing will actually run from DOS so that hasnt helped me much.

I am at the end of my limited knowledge on what to do. I am assuming the master record boot whatever is dead or gone. But everything I have read about that tells me to fix it with the windows disk. But since I cant get it to work at all i am dead in the water

Any ideas at all?

Did you try Last Known Good Configuration in the boot options?

Is the CD-Rom set as first boot device in the Bios?

If it is not booting from the CD-Rom then you may have hardware problems. Check all connections.
