Question about PC Laptops
My computer froze and wouldnt respond so I held down the power button for about 5 seconds until the computer shuts down. So I waited for about 5 minutes and rebooted my computer.
A screen came up, giving me different safe mode options or start windows normally. I used the arrows key to use Safe Mode. My windows started to boot up but then it went back to the page with the options for different safe modes. I read online where if you enter safemode and then you hit F8 at the correct timing it gives you an advanced list. So I used that. Once I get to the windows advanced list a blue screen came up that said a problem has been detected and to retsart my computer, select safemode, hit F8 and then select Safemode again under the advanced list. When I did so, it took me back to the screen again with the safe mode options.
Safe mode automatically comes up when you didn't shut down properly. Just select boot as normal or last known good configuration then you are good to go.
uninstall any new hardware or software you have recently installed to cause the problem in the first place. If you haven't installed anything then windows should just start normally.
