Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your laptop?

Does it have windows 7 or 8 or 10, etc.?

Does it show a username or name at the password ***** login screen?

Does it show an email address at the password ***** login screen? If yes, is that your email address? And/or do you have access to that email address or not?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

I have not tried it yet, I'm sorry but I got to go out and I won't be back in till 1.30 , I wouldn't know how to do that on my tablet. The battery in my tablet is running low so I have got to have to charge it.
Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

I'm sorry. Can you charge it while using the tablet? Can you please try the following when you are available:

Solution 1:

  3. When a menu appears, then you can release the Shift key.
