Hi,

Put a non bootable floppy disk in th edisk drive and boot

When you get the message

"Non System Disk or Disk error"

Remove the floppy disk and now press F8

This will bring you to the Command Menu in Windows XP

Please advise what Operating System you are using if it is not XP, The floppy disk solution works for Win 98 as well.

What make & model of computer.

I am having the same issue here. My sisters computer as well as mine received the AIM virus. both computers had same issues only thing is I ran all the virus removals on mine first and fixed everything. hers didnt get fixed and now little by little her computer sucks,... If you turn it on you hear the hard drive working but nothing pops up just the black screen with her desktop picture no icons nothing no toolbar on bottom. you cant do anything no cntrl alt del. or win button. Any suggestions? or is it to late???
