2 nights ago,while my computer was on,my neighborhood had a power outage(not sure what it was caused from,there was no storm or anything).
When the electric came back on,my computer would come on,but when it would get to the welcome section(just says "Welcome" with a blue back ground") it would not move any further.Now that is as far as it will go,and it just stays there.I tried unplugging the computer,I tried turrning it off,I tried to get onto it in safe mode,and I tried rebooting,but that is still as far as it will go.
I can move the arrow around,but there is nothing to click on.
The computer was not hooked up to a power surge,for the record.
Any ideas? I am afraid I will have to get it checked out by a professional or go buy a new one.
By the way,the computer is a Windows xp home edition.
Thanks in advance for any comments and help.
