and what does pressing f2 give you?

chances are it can't find your HDD or it can't find the boot.ini

have you tried a recovery cd?

try hitting F8 while it's booting up, and select safe mode or recovery options if there are any

F2 brings up the bios menu (utilitity setup) I dont have a recover cd....looks like I have to take it in. I tried hitting the f8 when signing on but it just keeps on beeping. Can I buy a recovery cd online or should I just take it in. I was playing facebook games and thinking I got a virus.

I don't know for sure but you might be able to purchase a recovery CD from the company that made the computer.

Im curious why I can only pull up f2 and nothing else....what good is f2 if I cant do anything in it or can I ?

it's good because currently it's the only reliably working part of your pc, windows doesn't load because you most likely got a problem with your HDD
