    Hello All,

    I have Windows 7 Home edition on a HP dv4 series laptop. Couple of days back I was browsing through a website suddenly the the windows was shutdown. I assumed it was some virus work

    When I try to restart windows it is taking me upto the HP boot options then I get a blank screen with a cursor at the top left corner.

    The following did not work,
    1) Booting via the recovery disk
    2) Booting via recovery hard disk
    3) I created a USB boot with Ubuntu and even the USB is not getting detected.

    I dunno what happened to the PC whether its the work of a virus or bios issue. Please Help

    Did you change the bios to boot from the USB or disk before the hard drive?
