Mother in law's laptop has decided to play games with her.
when you start up it shows the toshiba logo and then a black screen with a flashing cusor in the top left screen, no keyboard controls work at this stage.
restart it and only 2 buttons work F2 for BIOS and F12 for boot menu, F8 option does not work for safe mode.
OS is XP pro but she does not have a recovery disc.
i have changed the boot order for CD and tried some of my discs but it wont read them.
she said she was watching her laptop in bed and she fell asleep, and woke up with the no firewall warning on the taskbar showing. she clicked on it and all these programs came on, so she shut it down and it would not start this morning.
