i have disabled all hp startup along with skype. still get a black screen at startup. i few minutes ago, i went to use the laptop and it was powered off. odd. this happened once before.
i started it up and the screen said windows was shut down improperly. i know i didn't turn it off and we didn't lose power.
here is what i copied from the event viewer.
