My laptop was working, then my DVD drive broke. The power cord is fine. The laptop itself was fine. I tried to do a system restore, but silly me didn't save a restore point:( so now its gotten worse. I turn the laptop on and it says start windows normally or or launch startup repair. I go to the repair and it says loading. Then a black screen until it turns off. I really need this fixed. I heard its the black screen of death. Now, I can choose to start windows normally and it will say starting windows and do the same thing. A black screen. I've tried turning it on and pushing F8, and pushing repair computer, only to get the same thing. Can someone please give me a step by step guide. ??? Thanks :)
