Hi there and welcome

Can you please remove the power cable and then hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.

Connect the power cable and tell me please if it now starts.

I have been away on business this week and so only got a chance to try this method last night and i'm affriad it did not work
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


Power it off, power it on and keep tapping F11 until you get to a menu

can you get to this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will try this when I get back home this afternoon, I have previously tried this however and the pop up menu in blue does appear but when I select the boot line it still goes back to the original message again. Maybe I need to select a different option when I get to this stage?

Thanks, ***** ***** alreaddy tried and it failed then it confirms the problem, It is the hard dirve that has faulted. This is the boot device it cannot find.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the computer to have that replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
