First of all, the reason why I'm formatting my computer is because of a virus, that literally took over my computer, it's like it doesn't belong to me anymore! I can't even access my own session or anything, so formatting and a fresh start sounds good to me! .Im no professional in computers but I looked up some guides and I pretty much know the steps to format my computer. However, my problem is from the very beginning of it all. I already changed the boot sequence to CD-ROM and when I turn the computer on with the CD already in (Windows XP Professional SP1) I get the message 'Press any key to boot from CD' ..I press any key and nothing happens, my keyboard is not USB, after a while my keyboard starts beeping everytime I press a key and the cd never starts. The pc is a Dell Dimension 2400 Series Pentium 4 - 2.20GHz I have no idea what's going on..any kind of help would be GREATLY aprecciated..!
