Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
I turned off my laptop by pressing the power button and now the laptop will not restart. It goes to a screen that says "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." It has options (Safe Mode, Start windows normally...) But it always goes back to the same screen...
You want to time in the number corresponding to start windows normally and press enter.
