Why is my laptop not booting up after using a flash disk?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I got a friend with a flash disk and he asked me to copy him some movies from my Personal Computer and l did so. I first scanned the disk and made sure it was virus free then l formated the disk. The are virus that we detected but not deleted by the antivirus. Later in the evening l successfully shut the PC down without any problems. Then the following morning l woke to switch it on but it was able to boot up. No error message is displayed on the screen. The fun runs just for a short while then stop and it goes off. What could be the problem?

It seems like the OS has become corrupted. If there were viruses, those must be removed first. Without removing the malwares, they can work again while using the pendrive. It’s most likely your Windows has become corrupted.

Recently, there is a new and serious bug discovered in USB sticks that by changing their firmware, any PC that it connects to can be damaged. If you’re not so lucky, you’ve got such in your system.

First of all, make sure that your system boots and shows up the motherboard icon. If not, you’ll have to take it to any servicing center and consult an expert engineer.

If the motherboard icon shows, then you’re lucky. You’ll have to install your OS once again.

1. Get the installation disc of your OS or the ISO file.

2. From another computer, create a bootable USB and boot into the USB. You can use Rufus or UNetbootin to create the bootable USB.

3. Learn how to install Windows, Linux.
