I appear to have a problem with my Packard Bell EasyNote MX36 notebook.
It's two years old, with a Vista os.
A couple of days ago it froze and crashed, and when it started to reboot, it said: "ASID:A10509.001$", and then post screen, etc, but instead of loading Vista, it gave me the "Reboot and Select proper Boot device.. etc" line.
I could somehow manage to pull out my notebook from that state a couple of times since then, I restarted and restarted it, checked and corrected the boot sequence, because appereantly it got changed, and 'removeable device' was the first in order.
Or I managed to do a Recovery Boot with F11 somehow, and that could save it.
Also, there is an other error message I'm getting: the CMOS checksum error. (now I remember getting this message when the laptop wasn't more than a month old, so I can't really take this battery low thing seriously) And now, again there it was, but at least after I set the date and time, it began loading Vista, hurray.
But now, - nothing. None of these things work anymore, it doesn't matter that I check the boot sequence, because even if the first one is set to be the hard drive, the next thing is, it asks for the proper boot device...
(And I still get the checksum error too sometimes.)
And even if I get to do a Recovery boot, after flashing me the recovery screen it just switches off.
really pissed me off.
And I don't know what to do... is this some kind of a virus? I sure didn't do anything out of the ordinary when these things started happening.
I'd greatly appreciate your help!
