I have repeatedly turned the power on, and then hit F8 and gone into the process of system restore. I have been able to restore things back but after rebooting, I go through the same issue again and again.
The screen saver will remain on for several hours then I notice I have nothing but a blank screen with no ability to do anything outside of system restore once again.
Someone in the geeks to go chat, referred this forum to me. Looking forward to hearing from someone very soon concerning this.
