This is effectively BIOS, which is before Windows starts.

Have you changed anything in BIOS or was it after a BIOS update?

One bit of voodoo which apparently worked for someone went like this:

Assuming you are seeing a blue BIOS menu, at the top right you should find Exit. With the keyboard right arrow move along to Exit. If you then hit Enter you should then get a choice, so with the up/down arrows select "Save changes and Exit". You might have to repeat this a couple more times. I'm none too hopeful and the above is based on a grubby foreign video plus what I know about working in BIOS generally. It therefore might be a little different on your particular notebook.

Nothing lost by trying before you shell out money to get it fixed.

One other bit of voodoo you can try which might "unstick" it:

Turn off netbook and remove power. If at all possible remove the main battery too. Now hold down the Power Off/On button for at least 20 seconds which discharges the motherboard components. Re-assemble and feel lucky.

Aha! You finally admit it's voodoo!

That was the second link in my # 5 above.

I cannot get to task manager, as this is before Windows.

Thanks

I changed nothing. I just started my computer and this screen appeared.

Oops, didn't noticed my overlap. It takes skill though to effectively overlap with myself.

Yeah Voodoo, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny too LOL. Can work sometimes though.

I rarely make new posts on here but isn't there an "Edit This Message" link at the bottom left of your initial post? If not, given time the moderators might spot it and remove it.

How are you getting on with the suggestions so far?
