System: Dell, Inspiron 1505 laptop, Windows XP

Just got back from vacation and my son said our laptop said it had a Trojan and he closed it down. I've booted it up and it's looping in a logon/logoff. I've tried all the Fn8 options and it still loops. I've inserted the re-install CD to reload Windows and it's not recognizing that either. Yes, I've turned it off, then started it. Can't get to a DOS prompt. Sure hope it's something just dumb that I'm not thinking of! Maybe too much sand and relaxation. :)

I've gone through all the Trojan postings I can find that popped up in my search on Geeks-to-Go and can't find anything on this that tells me what to do now.

All help appreciated! Thanks!

Finally got the reload to work. Hopefully this has taken care of the trojan.
