Computer starts over and over again.
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have got a problem with my lap top that is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D P-4 P 2200. Yesterday it would not start up as usual as it only started up over and over again. But it seems like it is different to mange to get
First when I started it up the Fujitsu Siements logo comes on the screen with the choices for boot menu and after a while the screen goes black with only the following text on the top right screen, “Operating System not found”. And there it stops.
When I tried some times to start it up again it seemed to manage a bit more of the starting procedure. Then I get to a menu where I can choose from different options of start up. "Start Windows as normal", "Last known working configuration", "Secured", "Secure with command". But when I choose either one of these choices it just starts over again after a while and we are back to the same rhytm with re-start over and over.
When I bought the laptop I got a recovery CD with it, but when I tried to run it I get the message “dmio.sys is corrupted” after a while. I also tried to use the boot disk from Microsoft for the XP home edition, but with the same result. I got the error after a while at the 4th disk that said “dmio.sys is corrupted”.
I am not sure what causes this, but when I tried to find some solution on the net I read somewhere that it could be a virus. I am not sure about this at all as I am just a beginner in the computer techinces area so I would highly appreciate if someone could give me a solution or point me in a direction to what could be wrong.
