    Just how did you restore it? What did you use as a data source?

May I ask, what os are you using? Some os have a long time at the Thank you screent. Try letting the pc run for a while after it restarts. It can take up to 45 mins based on how much memory you have installed.

Corrupted software

It isn't often that Apple gives specific directions about how to fix your problem! Restoring the iPad will erase everything on it, so make sure everything on the iPad is stored elsewhere prior to restoring. To restore, connect your iPad to a computer with the latest version of iTunes installed. When your iPad appears under the devices menu, click the restore option under the summary tab. If you haven't backed up your data already, choose the back up option from the pop up window. Click the restore button to restore your Touch to factory spec.

Bad logic board

If attempting to restore the iPad and diagnosing does not fix the problem, the issue is probably the logic board.

Taskbar not working


Restart your computer. It usually does the trick. Computers need refreshing.

If restarting it won't fix the problem, then try restoring the computer. Go to start or pearl button > programs > system tools > system restore

Once the system restore window is open, select a date when the toolbar was still working. Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the procedure. Let the computer to restart.

Note: Restore will uinstall your new software. You should need to install it back in. Usually, the problem won't come back after doing that but if it does, just let me know by replying to this thread.

thank you!

My acer is stuck in the Windows xp screen and wont start up, I had turned it off and restarted it get to safe mode screen, but had not helped.

When you restart your laptop, keep pressing F8 until you see the "Windows Advanced Options Menu:"

Then choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

This will restore your computer to a previous configuration and might undo some changes you did to your computer before the problem happened.

Start your computer in safe mode (press F8 before you get the Windows splash screen). I usually suggest pressing F8 continuously as soon as you see anything on the screen.
Once you get the white menu up that allows you to enter safe mode, let the computer boot into safe mode and do a system restore back to when you know the system worked.
That should solve the problem.
