Getting the no operating system found due to a virus

Hello,
Could you please help me to get a virus off of my laptop. I took it to the "Geek Squad" and they let me know that I got a virus and wouldn't need the back up disk to recover my system however they wanted $199 to remove the virus from a $349 computer. Is there anyway I can do it on my own without having to pay the $199. The computer is still under a year old. Thank you for your help.

    Do a factory restore. there should be a button you push at startup. If you are getting an "operating system not found" error I guarantee that's all geek squad is going to do. They also can't gave checked for a virus in that state and wouldn't bother, so they are just guessing. are you even sure you had a virus? it very possible it got corrupted or had a hardware problem instead. the number one rule to remember is geek squad has no idea what they are talking about. number 2 is they will rape you for pushing 3 buttons
  2. One of the Fake Virus - Buy This Software to Fix it - malware scams?
  3. Do you have any personal files and data you need to rescue that you haven't already backed up?

    Thanks so much for your information and help. I'll try that. You are right about the Geek Squad. I felt like they were asking way too much to get it working again.
