help windows reinstallation

Post by ruswrestler on Sat 29 Nov 2008, 12:39 pm

Hi, recently my laptop came up with a blue screen and quickly shut down in the middle of a virus scan. it will no longer turn on. when i power it on the light turns on but nothing shows up. Is there a way i can reinstall windows on this computer at all, thanks for any help.

Do you have a recovery disc provided by your laptop vendor or did you make one when you purchased it?

Insert the disk and restart your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly if there is an option asking you if you want to do a repair or a destructive recovery, choose destructive to bring your windows back to it's factory state.

Remember that all the data in your computer will be lost.
