Could someone tell me how to fix this? I don't have any CDs with the OS or anything for this laptop. Is there a particular order to use to boot it up? Does Windows Updates crash computers???!! I called Geek Squad, but they say to bring it in. I ask how much will it cost, they don't want to tell me. I wish I had never let Windows Update do an install. I thought it would be safe. But it has screwed up my laptop configurations, or did something twisted.
This has really got me down, I don't have a lot of money and this laptop is my only way to make money and keep learning web design. Thank you very much.
