I have an Acer laptop (on Vista) - 3yrs old. I leave it on 24/7. Generally if there are updates, it restarts ok. Last night I decided to 'try something different' & hit hibernate. Today I hit the on button & it started up but a dark screen has appeared & I can't get anything else to happen. I can't even switch it off. Do I unplug it & let the battery drain so it switches off& tryto start again or is there anything else I can do. I use it forwork so need to access it soon as pos.
Thanks guys - Tried ctl, alt, del & didn't work - Also holding the start button & nothing is happening.
Computer is fully backed up so I'll drain the battery & see if it will start then. Do I actually need to remove the battery or will draining it be sufficient? (I didn't know they could be removed doh!)
