I'm back again with other problem.
My PC won't work - its now completely refusing to star-up unless I press F8 and start in Safe Mode. I am basic with PCs software/hardware etc, but heres the story so far:
Approximately 1 year ago my computer (Pentium 2, quite basic approxiamtely 5 years old from new), developed a virus and I had to call a PC bloke out to fix it. He completey wiped the PC and installed Panda, Windows XP (not geniune unfortunately). Since then I've had one problem, which T and a few others helped me out with (logged in Virus forum).
However, since then I believe that my PC developed another virus and stopped working properly. When I say stopped working properly is that when you initially turn on the PC and blue screen pops up with the message:
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
As this is not the first time I'm seeing this message, the message said that I should disable BIOS memory such as caching or shadowing.
I have purchased a genuine copy of Windows and would like to install it again as I think that this may rectify any problems that I'm currently having, but I don't know how to disable BIOS. I have tries installing Windows in Safe Mode but it won't let me.
Can anyone help or give some advice? Also, once I install Windows XP on my PC can I use that same disk on my laptop.
Thanks for your help.
