I wanted to reformat because I have a very pesky trojan\keylogger that I could find no other way to remove other than reformatting... although I will lose a lot of stuff its all I can do. so I popped my win7 disc in, shut my comp off.
I go to turn it on and it wont post... its been sitting that way, On, for 20 min, without posting... and no matter how long I hold the power button it wont shut off either... I don't know what to do at this point, please help!
The only other thing I did was change my boot device priority so it would boot from my optical drive to go to the windows menu thing where I could then reformat.
Can you switch it off from a power strip or something? A solid state switch is pretty much the same thing whether it's at your breaker box, on the power strip, or on the power supply itself - it breaks the circuit.
