Ok, first off, this is not my problem, but my sister’s (so in a way it is my problem too, but I am not the one who caused it )
Yesterday, my sister started her PC and some error message appeared, made her go into BIOS. Don’t think she changed much the first time, but after booting into Windows, her printer needed reinstalling. So she did.
After reboot for completion of printer installation, another error appeared (forgot what the exact errors were, but it had something to do with CPU (or VPU as she first described it)). She went into the BIOS and recognised CPU from the error message. She saw enabled next to it and decided to disable it (I am not sure if it is possible, but she may have disabled her CPU).
Now that she changed the setting, her PC won’t even boot, her screen stays black. Turning power off and back on when holding ‘Del’ will not get her into the BIOS.
I was not able to help her over the phone, don’t even remember the make and model of her PC. But before I rush over and take the machine apart, I was hoping that someone here would have an idea how to fix this (could it be a virus?)
Many thanks in advance (also on behalf of my sister)!
