Question about Computers & Internet
My girlfriends laptop - an Inspiron 1545 - is saying that the computer did not close down properly and is now giving her the option to start up in a number of 'safe' modes or 'start up normally'. on trying to start normally it allows here to enter her password but then the screen goes grey and nothing seems to be happening. Her son needs it for homework and as an autistic child is not getting very anxious. I am 50 miles away and have no experience of this. Can someone PLEASE help?
-i would suggest that you run the Dell Diagnostics
-while the computer is off, press and hold the "Fn" key then press the power button at the same time; check if the problem is happening during the test
-do the test on the screen; while the computer is off, press and hold "D" then press the power button at the same time; check if you see the diif colors without any problem; if problem is not seen it is a Motherboard problem; if problem is seen it is an LCD problem; call your manufacturer

Just start up in SAFE mode. Then shut down normally. On the next boot, the computer should come up normally. (not in safe mode)
