Heres a strange one for ya all ! !
Have an AMILO A1650 laptop with xp pro on it and its a few years old now but is still rock solid and ver fast, , never let me down till this morning.
When i turned it on this morning, everything started as per usual and windows booted to the desktop fine but, , whenever i click on ANYTHING on the start bar at the bottom of the screen i get an error beep and everything appears frozen. I cant even click on the start button to access any features.
Whats weird though is, , everything above the start bar is fine, , all my desktop icone work fine and open up fine, , ie email , explorer and all my other desktop icons are fine, , but anything on the bottom bar appears to be frozen and if you click the mouse anywhere on this bar you get an error beep and nothing happen, ie nothing opens up.
The main problem i suppose is not being able to access anything from the start button, , programs, , documents, pics, music, control panel etc !
I have a usb wireless mouse thats the default mouse whenever its plugged in, , but even when i took out the usb receiver to use the scratch pad mouse i get the same problem so its neither the wireless mouse or the scratch pad mouse that are at fault, cos as i have already said, , they both work fine and as they should on anything else on the desktop apart from the bottom start bar.
I have rebooted 4 times and its still the same , , , ,any ideas ? ? ?
I have never heard of this happen to anyone before, , and its certainly never happened to me on any of my laptops or desktop pcs ? ? ? ?
I still have my desktop to use, and of course everything on my laptop, apart from anything that hasnt got a desktop icon that is, , i miss my lappy already ! !
