What make and model laptop - rather useful information to have... Also what operating system is installed.

Was everything OK prior to this problem, or were there odd things happening a wee while before with the laptop?

On some systems that used to be the button to press to enter the bios settings (or was in days of yore if I recall correctly).

What happens if you do press it?

Does the laptop do anything at all if you simply wait?

Does it work OK otherwise?

Do you ever see anything but a blank screen when starting up? If not you almost certainly have a hardware fault - something has gone phut.

If you see words on the screen then watch it and look for the keys to press to get into Setup (which is another word for BIOS). If you can get that screen it will tell us that your issue might still be down to software.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
