Well, my laptop appears to be not responsing after initial start up. It gets to the blue windows screen, just before transferring to desktop and then just sits there. Mouse moves fine and I have intermittant hd activity shown by flashing led, but it's just not booting up properly.
Recently been suffereing with adware/spyware etc, downloaded ad-aware and spybot to try and solve, but to no real avail. Internet Explorer kept loading up with systemnetsecurity or something as my homepage even though I'd tried to reset to another site. Could this be causing it not too boot up fully?
A mate has suggested about reinstalling windows, but I'm no tech wizard when it comes to this stuff! Any advice???
Model is Compaq Evo N1050v.
