Question about PC Laptops
I unintentionaly left my Libretto U105 in hibernate for a day or two. When I rebooted, I am getting the following message:
Press a key to reboot...
Is there a fix, other than reloading os?? I cannot even access the screen to select safe mode, so I can back up data. I also have norton go-back installed on this laptop, can this help?
If the computer after power on is checking the drives ie the CD and/or floppy to boot from then it is a software problem. You need to put in your recovery CD/disk and hope fully it will allow you to just fix the errors within the boot up files and not have to install os.
Your norton could help - try booting from that or the ones you produced by using Norton.
If you have to reload then do not format just save old - it should give you that option.

and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell
Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Look for Manuals on the site and search them on hibernation.
Below is what your manual says to get out of hibernation you have to press the Power Button (very last paragraph at bottom).
Hibernate Mode Hibernate mode conserves power by copying system data to a reserved area on the hard drive and then completely turning off the computer. When the computer exits hibernate mode, it returns to the same operating state it was in before entering hibernate mode.
NOTICE: You cannot remove devices or undock your computer while your computer is in hibernate mode. Your computer enters hibernate mode if the battery charge level becomes critically low.

If its only 3 mnths old should still be under WARRANTY take it back
if its not under warranty
Turn Off the computer now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding Alt key & keep on tapping F10 key ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer) or
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually delete or the F2 key this will differ depending on which bios you have
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope it helps
