So I have a tashiba a laptop that won't log in . I hold down the shift key and f8 key at the same time to start up task manager and nothing pops up its just stays on a black blank screen with just my mouse arrow showing . What else can I do ?
Can you tell me what error code is shown on the screen? Can you boot into Safe mode or not?
The first that comes up in my mind is to restore the system through a repair CD if you have one.
The second thing is to restart your computer, go after pressing the appropriate F key to navigate to the Windows menu. From there you should have access to restore your OS. Open the Command Prompt in safe mode and run the command:
sfc / scannow
Then press Enter and wait for your OS to be repaired. If you cannot access this menu while you reboot, enter BIOS settings. There, navigate to the storage menu to verify that your hard drive is as a first boot priority. If not, set it!
Once you have done this, they come over here to tell me what happened.
