I have a Dell Inspiron 3000. It's not but a couple of years old. I was told that it had a virus and windows would not load. I was getting to the a: and c:. I tried a boot disk, but kept getting an error message of invalid media type on drive c:. A co-worker was working on it prior to me and thinks he partitioned the c:. I really don't want to reformat c: because there is data that I need. Can you help?
Well, reformating really isn't the problem. I would love to be able to about right now, but I still have a problem. I can't even get to my a: or my c:. I can't reformat without those. After the computer boots up and goes through the set up screen, it goes straight to the blank screen. If I put a boot disk in, you can see the light on the floppy light up and hear it turning but only for a second. It won't even go to the a: or read that disk. I have a good boot disk,but the puter won't read it. Any suggestions?
