  1. Hi,

    When I start my computer it stops at the screen with white blinking underscore.

    I tried booting Windoes XP from a disc but I the I got BSOD.

    I posted on the Windows BSOD, Freezing, Restarting Help forum - see link below:

    It was suggested that I might need to remove malware but how do I do this when I can't get passed the black screen. Do you guys know how to do this or do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks for your help.
