First try pressing down the power button for up to 10 seconds or until the laptop powers down. Wait a couple of minutes and see if the computer reboots properly. If it does, fine, if not power the laptop down again and again wait a couple of minutes, power on and press F8 whilst it is booting to get a menu up which should say on one of the entries something like "revert to last known good settings" Highlight this option using the keyboard arrow keys (mouse won't usually work here) and pressing return.
This should set your computer back to before the update that is causing the problem.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
If it is really frozen on that screen, unplug the power cable and take out the battery to shut it down. Once shut down put the battery back, plug the power cable back in, and reboot. If it freezes again you got a serious hardware or software problem.
Have you tried starting in safe mode to see if it will boot that way? In case your not sure how turn the computer off then when off hit power on and just start pressing F8 over and over until you get the black screen asking about safe mode. You might hear some beeping while doing it dont worry about that. Choose start in safe mode with networking.Quick question is there any reason the lapshows the screen of windows starting vertically like that instead of the normal horizontal way from left to right? Just curious if you did that or thats new too.
I'm pretty sure that you are having a boot failure, not all to figure out is whether the HDD is bad or just the operating system having a problem.
Hold the Fn Key and press the power button to start diagnostics on the system and see if you get a hard drive failure message. If you do replace it. If diags pass, then try booting to the Windows XP CD, and run CHKDSK /R at the recovery console (Press R at 1st prompt to enter RC)
I have an asus pc 1000hd that does this every now and then. I hold the power button down and the whole machine shuts off after a few seconds. Either that or you can take out the battery, wait a few seconds and then reinsert it
try to log in safe mode when the laptop is booting by pressing F8 key, you will see many option select boot in safe mode, if you can boot in safe mode then reboot normally. if the problem remains then you have to repair or reinstall your operating system.
