Help with Aspire 5740-5255 laptop
Hello fellow members of AO. I have an Aspire 5740 laptop that is not loading into windows. It keeps rebooting into this continuous cycle at the BIOS screen (which is a Phoenix) I can boot into BIOS by pressing the F2 key and I can see the Hitachi hard drive etc... but it's not doing nothing.
Prior to this, I had the Flash Player Update Virus (2 days ago) I boot it up now and this continuous loop at the BIOS screen where it acts like it wants to load but it does nothing.
Any tips, tricks, ANYTHING you guys can recommend is greatly appreciated... Thanks, Mike
update thing I just got done trying;
unplugging battery and power cord, and I hold the power button for 30 seconds tried each one separately, booting too, same issue.
I reset the BIOS to the factory settings. Same issue.
I reset the hard drive in the laptop same issue. Also, did the same with the ram. Booted it up same issue.
I don't have any recovery disks or nothing like that came with the system....
Again, all help is greatly appreciated.
