It happened again about a month ago and I tried pressing random buttons and shutting it off and then turning it back on and it worked. Now it is currently stuck again and I can't get it back on. Naturally the guy from the PC shop didn't tell me exactly how he got it unstuck. I don't really want to drop more money at the shop for what appears to be a simple problem that he can fix quickly.
Only problem is for the life of me I can't find out how he did it from the internet. Almost every single person/website/forum says something different. The potential problems that cause this are numerous.
I wasn't billed for any extra parts or time. I was billed for a half hours time which is the lowest they will charge. So whatever they did to fix it was not labor or time intensive.
Using a Dell XPS 1530 laptop with windows vista. Thank you.
