When I tried to start it in SafeMode (Rapidly pressing F8) it just gave me booting device options on a blue screen. It has things like "Boot from CD", "Boot from Floppy", etc. I also have the "delete" key option to configure settings so I hit delete on the next reboot and it gave me advanced system options and things of that nature. I HIGHLY doubt it's a virus, because I've had 'em all, and I didn't download anything yesterday except for the updates.. and a new msn that came out 6 months ago that none of my friends had a problem with. (I actually don't like the new msn, I'm going to uninstall it if my computer ever decides to work again. I hate that I can't choose the color of the conversation! Most other people's displays completely CLASH with my red and black color scheme!)
And the worst part about my situation is we have 9 other computers in the house and enough parts to build 20 more, and the only other one that is mine is gutted since part of it wasn't working. Her name was Eto. Yes, I named my computer. So, RIP Eto.
So please, help me fix the computer which is pretty much hopeless without wiping the hard-drive, which I really don't want to do because it has all my important things on it. (Although I suppose I could just put Eto's hard drive in it, since Eto was my first custom computer which I loved dearly and downloaded lots of games for her... Bwahaha, Eto lives! Ahaha! Okay, I'm done being crazy now, just please help me. I'm good with computers, but I've never seen this problem before with my circumstances.)
