Help, my computer has just died. It was functioning normally, then it froze, when into an installing updates sequence and then turned itself off. When I turned it back on the initial Packard Bell screen appeared, and then just went blank with a flashing cursor in top left hand corner. And that is it. The computer had Norton installed on it with uptodate virus definitions.
I am writing this from the second family computer, and in case it is a virus problem I am running an online virus scan from F secure.
Any suggestions as to what I might do? Windows Vista was pre-installed so I don't seem to have an installation disk for the operating system.
