It may happen due to hardware failure, BIOS mismatch or due to static
charge. Let us try the basic troubleshooting. Turn Off the Netbook, remove
all the devices attached to the computer, the power cable and battrey, now
holdon the power button for 15 secs (make sure adpater and battery are
uplugged) it will drain out all the static charge. Now, restart the computer
and keep on tapping F2, you will enter to BIOS setup utility, press F9 (click
"Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are
prompted), it will restart the computer. If still it is not booting to normal
mode, then we have to perform a full system recovery & it is a distructive
process as you will loose all the datas on the computer. To do so, Turn Off
the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding
"AltGr" (it is on the right side of the spacebar key) & keep on tapping "F10"
key, i.e AltGR+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory
restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas
on the computer.

How do i turn off safe mode


Most computers when you boot it up give the option of "Boot Menu" upon the first few seconds of powering the machine on. Look at the screen and see if it reads Press F1 or F2 for Boot Menu. From there you can toggle off the safe mode option. Sometimes it's the delete key or alt key for some other computer providers as well.

Hope this helps,

Marty

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch


Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.
