Hi, my laptop keeps rebooting, and I can’t find any way to make it stop.

When I turn on my laptop all I get is a "First picture screen" (I dont know what to call it) telling me what processor I have got.
It says:

H2 Insyde
Intel Inside centrino technology

Then the laptop reboots, showing me the “First picture screen” again, reboots, etc. etc. I can’t seem to get out of this loop.

I can’t access my BIOS by pressing Delete. Only the F2- and F12-key works!

When I press F2 the BIOS displays this message:

Insyde Software Mobilepro BIOS version 4.00.00

When i press F12 the BIOS displays this message:

Insyde Software Mobilepro BIOS version 4.00.00

Booting from LAN…


The only difference between pressing F2 and F12 is the last sentence (and pressing F12 makes the laptop beep once)

Last sentence:
F2: Entering system configuration utility, please wait…
F12: Booting from LAN…

After displaying either of these messages, the laptop instantly reboots. What am I going to do??

This problem occurred to me approximately 24 hours after my AVG found a JP/Psyme virus. I tried to heal the infected file, using AVG, but it failed so instead I vaulted the file. I read about the virus, and it seemed rather harmless, so I didn’t think much of the infection until 24 hours later, when my laptop started looping. I have no clue if there is any connection between the virus and the BIOS loop, but I thought I would mention it, just in case.

Please help me. Any suggestions are welcome.
