I have an emachine that will not boot to windows because it is froze on the BIOS page. It will not respond to the rebootable disc. It doesn't respond to control + alt + del. It doesn't respond to F8 or F2. It doesn't respond to the esc key or any other key. Any suggestions on how to reboot in safe mode or get the recover disc to run?
I picked up a trojan a few weeks ago and had to use the recover disc and I lost most of my information. I've since added a MyBook external hard drive and had just last week added a 7-port USB hub.
I had ran a program called Recuva to attempt to get some of my info back and did retrieve some. Everything seemed to be running just fine until tonight.
I did use the MyBook and back up the PC once so at least what I did have is on it if I do need to replace the hard drive.
I've added a picture of what the frozen screen looks like and my PC, in case that will help. I'm using an ancient laptop for now and desperately need to get the PC running again. This laptop only has one USB port and won't take a USB hub.
Any and all help, advice and encouragement will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. This is my first time using a forum like this, so please forgive any mistakes.
