Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I restored my computer to an earlyer date and now only my picture is on the screen


Answers :

Hello,

\015\012You will need to restart the computer again, and as you see the monitor light up you will need to start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. This will take you to a special diagnostic startup menu. In that menu you will need to use the cursor keys and choose safe mode and press enter. After pressing enter you may see an option asking you to select the operating system. If you do just select it with the cursor keys on the keyboard and press enter. If not, just continue with the next steps.

\015\012You will see a list of files scroll down the screen. There is no need to worry its just a list of drivers. After that list stops you see see a dialog that advises you are running in safe mode. It will give you the option of staying in safe mode by clicking yes or you can choose No to enter the System Restore program. Once there try choosing an earlier date.

\015\012Hopefully that will correct the issue. Please remember to rate this solution.
