Unlocking laptop from safemode.

I turned my laptop off via the on/off button insted of the 'shut down' method and as a result I can't get into my account. I have tried pressing the F2 button on start-up and have went through all of the 'safe mode' options, but this hasn't solved the problem. Can you help please?

I do not claim to be any great font of knowledge when it comes to laptops so I can tell you basically what a desktop would do:

During the re-booting process I hold down ctrl/F8 or just F8 to get the options menu with safe mode on it,. After I run Scandisk it there are no errors, I re-boot the computer and hold down F8 to run in "normal" mode again.

This may be Greek to you-like I said, I don't know.

Good luck!!!!

Hold down the on off button on the top of your Ipad and hold it until it says 'swipe to turn off". After wait until it completely shut down and put it on charge for 30 minutes. After turn it on by pressing and holding down the same button for 10 seconds and then it should be fixed.

I accidently shut my computer down with hibernation before leaving. When I come home, the computer will not turn on, no lights no noise, nothing. How do I unlock the hibernation? Or could it be something...


You need to hit the power button just the once to bring it back out of hibernation mode. It may take around 30 seconds until you hear your computer starting to boot back up and a little longer for the screen to come on.
Failing this, you can try a hard reboot by holding down the power button until you hear your computer re-boot. Usually you need to hold around 10 seconds. However using this last method as a final resort will result in your computer telling you that it did not shut down properly.

Start button not working so cannot shut down


Assuming you know how, press the on button and hold it for more than five seconds -- your windows will shut down and computer will turn off. Then restart it in safemode, use SytemRestore to go back to a good restore point. That should get your Start button back to where it was when it worked.

I can't get in to my user account.


Hello,

Try to competelly shut down your laptop by pressing the On/Off button for approximatelly 5 seconds...

Once is shutted down, try to start it again.
If you are unable to start up your notebook, then try pressing F8 after the initial screen is displayed. Not wait too long because otherwise it will try to start Windows again. The F8 key must be pressed BEFORE windows starts.... Then, you will see several options...Choose the one that says "Safe Mode". By doing this you will be able to access your notebook and reinstall Windows again. Only do this if you were unable to start windows in standard mode.

Hope it helps.

Blank screen


the power is supposed to stay on when that little plastic button is pressed(screen switch)the screen switch activates hibernate and power saving;if you press the power button a screen will open informing you what programs are currently working.by shutting down you have caused an illegal command.
hopefully if you restart in safemode then shut down correctly and restart every thing should be ok.
