Just got an email from my dad saying that his laptop screen is blank (he's using another computer to write the email obviously).
This is what he's told me:
On Saturday by accident I hit wrong type keys. This caused what I can only describe as a grey task bar at appear on the bottom of my screen. There were icons on this grey task bar. The computer functioned ok even with the grey task bar, but it was annoying because I did not have full screen use.
On Tuesday when I came home from work I accessed my ebay site and this was ok, except I noticed slight flickering on the screen monitor. I completed a listing or two and left the computer on ebay while I answered the phone. Probably half an hour before I got back to it. The screen was then black and no matter what I did the computer wouldn,t come on and that remains the case.
Any ideas what the problem could be - and what solutions there are?
