no error message, windows 8.1
It just says welcome on the log space with a row of spinning dots as though its waiting for conformation of access to open up computer properly
I have shut it down using the power button as it does not allow me to get to the normal shut down process, I have then unpluged the computer for approx 1 minute and then switched it on again am now back to the same stage with the welcome sign and spinning dots. Computer is a Lenovo IdeaCentre A730
there is a power button clicking it reveals a box saying sleep, shut down and restart which does respond as I have used restartng the computer and it does work.
just keeps restarting computer but no recovery options are appearing.
sorry Chris not pressing correct button screen is now showing options
I have them backed up on a remote disk drive
am using system restore any idea how long it normally takes?
