    Hi, I'm new here. Yesterday I got a virus on my computer that was detected by the trend PC anti virus program and it said it modified start up files, so I told the virus program to undo the changes, it seemed like all was well, so I turned off my computer and went to school. When i got home I tried to turn on my computer only to see a black screen and hear no beep, and im pretty sure its the virus, but since theres not even any writing or a mouse on the screen I cant enter my bios or recover, I was wondering what components I need to replace to fix this or a way to get to that recovery menu so i can recover back before i downloaded the virus and solve the problem instantly, but I cant get to it since nothing happens when I turn my PC on, anyone got any ideas? Oh and im pretty sure its a boot sector virus.

    Computer model: Compaq Presario SR5180AN Desktop Computer
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 4800+
    RAM: 2048MB DDR2
    Hard-drive: 320GB 3G
    GFX: Nvidea Geforce 8500GT 3D

    I realise it may not have been the virus which is why I posted in this section of the forum as I have seen similar problems but without mention of a virus.
