What is the operating system?

Please Identify your laptop with more than I think.

Look at barcode tag on bottome and post all except serial number.

Hi,

 

Can you access the Start button by using the Windows key on your keyboard?

 

Start --> type sfc /scannow

select sfc /scannow with your cursor and left click on it to start it.

let it run. The SFC (system file chacker chacks to see that all or your system files are in operable condition. Any that it finds that are corrupt or otherwise damaged, it will replace with clean copies.

 

After the system file checker is complete restart your PC.

 

Please post your results here.

Best regards,
erico
