A Windows 7 HP ProBook 6570b laptop is rebooting just after the HP logo appears during the boot process. This means the laptop reboots about 4 seconds after turning it on.
The laptop had been generating BSOD after what we believe was a virus infection occurred.
If I boot into PMagic from a USB drive, and try to recover some data using File Manager, I get an error saying the device is in hibernation, and cannot be mounted.
I've been told to bring the laptop out of hibernation mode, I need to hold down the power button for 5-20 seconds, however this does not work.
I don't have a HDD caddy or cable to use to connect the laptop HDD to a desktop PC and delete the hibernation file.
I don't have a Windows recovery CD handy, but I may be able to receive one from another office.
How else can I bring the laptop out of hibernation?
