Hi dw808

Try remove the battery (disconnect from power-outlet if connected with cord)
Wait 15-20 minutes before putting the battery back in, alternatively, try another
battery if you got one.

See if it will start normally.

Tank y0u pulled the battery and then restarted. The Windows icon started showing that it was loading and the screen is functional. Then when it went dark it stayed dark though when i hit keys i heard puter background noises. Any clue why the background isn't loading?
