Help needed

Post by stattointhailand » August 20, 2020, 1:26 pm

Daughters laptop when switched on just displays "windows is resuming" on a blue background.

High tech to me is a pencil sharpener with two sizes, so I dont have a clue if it needs to go to shop or if it can be fixed

any advice appreciated

You could try pressing & holding the power button forcing a shutdown. Wait a couple of minutes then power up again. That might be enough to get Windows to start properly

When I have had computer problems, there's often suggested resolutions on the internet and/or explanations.Likewise, I don't have much of as clue with technology.

Thanks guys even when I press F8 before turning on and holding it down whilst I switch on it still comes up "windows is resuming"
other options seem to include things like "click on start button" , but there is nothing on the screen except "windows is resuming" so I cant "click" on anything.
Looks like a store visit tomorrow as I wont get through the weekend with my sanity "semi" intact if she needs non PC things to occupy her all weekend

Looked up problem on line(seems like major problem encountered with windows 10) and they go on about booting without battery in then checking something to do with "split hard drives" ....... all far to techie for me.

and then

Dtr just came in from bike ride, plugged power in to charge her phone (laptop on same extension lead) and the bl**dy thing has started perfectly ............ computers seem like old TV sets, if the pictures fuzzy just hit the top of the TV with your fist a few times

Could be a start up file has moved from laptop to phone so when phone not connected laptop cannot boot

If it's Windows 10, it was probably an update that was completing? Can't be rushed.

Yip,
Don't know which one is worse the UK rail service or Windows 10. No one has any idea when it will arrive/finish updating/leave or if it is working at all. Just wait like a numpty and eventually it will work/arrive.
