Hi, I have a very strange problem and I'm looking for help or at least some ideas.
A friend of mine updates his Norton Antivirus, the Compaq PC restarts and the computer stops working. The original restore disks wouldn't work. A bootup Windows XP disk delets the current partitions, makes a new one and copys the windows files on the hdd and after restart the PC does not boot from the hdd with the message:
I decided that the PC is gone and plugged a new custom build PC which has worked perfectly so far. After installing AVG antivirus, I started installing Norton Firewall. The install prog checked for viruses with the built-in Norton Antivirus, finished its work. After the restart the new PC stopped working. Most of the time it would not even pass the Bios test with the message: Keyboard error or keyboard no present. I checked the k. cable a 100 times.
Both PCs were plugged into the same surge protector plug.
Pls, help! 10x!
