Laptop/windows 10 issue
« on: December 27, 2017, 04:53:46 pm »
I have a Gateway laptop that is a few years old.  It was running windows 7 pro and when 10 came out I switched to try it before switching anything else.  It was running fine last I used it, which has been months.

Today I plugged in, powered up, and it just cycled through the Gateway screen.  Could not enter setup, or even turn it off.  Had to pull the battery.

So...I know I have heard about this issue before, but can't seem to find a solution online that fits.

any ideas??
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Pulling the battery seems to have done the trick.  I'll leave this in case it happens to someone else.  I did leave out battery off for a while.

LMAO  The apple solution is to buy a new device when they control your device.  This is supported by Trump so just succumb to the gods and buy a new computer.  From windows 10 on you do not control the device.  It is a new government.  Just play stupid and do what they want.
