Hi there can you reboot as you did previously then go into the f8 startup menu again choosing safe mode on its own then when you go into safe mode it will say do you want to restore or continue in safe mode choose restore and choose a restore date before the problem occurred it should then shut your machine down and it should come up with your machine has been successfully restored. Let me know how that goes or what point you get stuck at.
Ok here is what happens. I turn on the of and there is an energy saver screen. Options are tab:Post Screen, DEL :BIOS Setup/Q Flash, F9 :xpressrecovery2, F12:Boot Menu, End: QFlashOnly button that changes the screen out of these is tab.Then I get similar options in the next screen. delete is the only button that works and it says prepare to enter setup....but nothing happens.
Ah ok can you unplug the power from the machine and press the power button a couple of times to discharge then plug back in and power up making sure you have no external devices attached that are not completely necessary eg keyboard mouse and monitor. If this doesn't work go into the bios using del key then select load optimised defaults then save and exit let me know if that works.
Yes this worked. Thank you. Any idea what could have caused this?
It's most probably the bios got stuck this just resets the bios. Does happen some times please click accept to thank me.
