  1. @Leanne – I do not think it’s hibernate problem in that case. I guess you should get a computer techies help and get it checked.

  2. Thank you so much for your help. The only problem is I can’t even turn the laptop back on. I have taken the battery out and the mains to try reset it, but to no avail. So without being able to turn it back on, I can’t get into the control panel, etc. Is there any way I can reboot it? Thank you for trying to help me 🙂
