Let me see if I can sum it up.
The computer does not let you enter the BIOS settings screen and it does not let you use the Windows disk to make a new installation.
If this is a virus that got itself into the BIOS, then pulling the BIOS battery out or using the reset jumper will not change things, it will only
erase the BIOS settings and reloads the default settings.
Also, not all boards use a backup ROM with the BIOS code to reset the BIOS to its original version, so you have to check if that computer has that
Another thing that may explain this problem is a hardware fault, the disk or the controller may have some hardware problem that is creating all this
Something I should have asked before, what is the model of that computer?
