Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del. If it isn't completely frozen, it should bring up the task manager. Open file -> new task (run). Type "explorer.exe" without the quotes and press enter. This should open the task bar.

If that doesn't work, hold the power button for 10 seconds to do a hard reboot and see if it boots past that the next time you load. If not hold the power button for another 10 seconds and press F8 while the computer is booting up to enter safe mode. If you can get into safe mode, use a restore point to go back to a date when it was working.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I have an acer 710 laptop boots up but shows a back ground and a mouse what can I do

Which specific model of Acer 710 do you have? Some have a Windows OS and others have Google Chrome.

Try a single left click of the mouse. On Windows 8 systems, the default setup is to show a picture on the lock screen on booting. The single click leads to the login screen. (Depending on the settings, you log in with your MS username and password or a local account. Microsoft recommends the MS account. You can add a picture password, as well. That's a pattern password relative to the picture.)

I hope this helps.

I have a proview lcd screen and it palys the tv shows in back ground but it's a dark screen like dark blue no picture. Volume and everything working but just no picture. What can i do.

Show a torch light on the screen for a distance, and if you can see the picture, the backlight is not lighting up. Check for its settings on the remote, if you have that option. Check also the settings of brightness/contrast/sharpness/color. If you still have problems, please call in a qualified service technician.

Turns on but nothing shows only volume

I assume you mean you have sound but no picture.

Shine a flashlight or lamp on the screen at an angle (about 20-30° from the plane of the screen). Do you see the picture (it will be dim and have low contrast) where the light shines? If you do, you have a failed back-light (fluorescent tubes, inverters or high-voltage power to the inverters). If not, there may be a general problem with the panel drivers - hopefully nothing more serious than a loose cable from the main video processor board; or you have a failure in the video processing circuit.

If you mean that you can show the volume control bar graph on the screen but no picture, it's time to try different input source selections to see what is working and what isn't.
