Things I have done so far: When in safe mode I ran Spybot search and destroy, and Adware Lava Soft SE Persoanl and Computer Associates virus scan and deleted what I found. But I still had the issue booting up after doing this. I have not tried a system restore. Other potentially helpful info: My computer does not beep at start up? Widows logo comes up like it is turning on then it goes to black screen with cursor blinking and the key board does not operate. It is hit or miss when trying to start in safe mode I push F8 and sometimes just hold down the key hoping that I get the timing right for loading up safe mode. A couple of times I got a black screen telling me my key board has failed, so I swaped out key boards but unknownif this has helped anything.
Anyhow, I do not know where to start and would appreciate help solving this one.
