Ran AVG remove as listed above, posted on here and surfed for an hour or so. Switched off computer as normal, tonight I switched on machine and
It crawled through BIOS setup
The express gate functionality of my motherboard is gone (says it is not installed)
Hard drive is not seen and so machine won't boot
Tried turning it on and off again, will boot XP disc. Tried R for repair but it does not see hard drive, ran chkdsk and got message that disc seems to have one or more unrecoverable problems, though that might be as it does not see a disc to check.
I have tried setup Windows from the XP disc, get the screen the following list shows the existing partions, it shows four drives where it says there is no disc in this drive. I then got the blue screen of death.
My motherboard is an ASus p5q, do you think there might be an error there?
Not sure if there is much we can do?
Sorry for the bad news, was pretty sure we were over it.
