Big Problem After Power Loss: Help Please
New HP PC of a few weeks, running Windows7
Last night, inadvertently hit the AC power strip on/off button that the PC is plugged into.
Seems like the power strip being turned off, while PC was running, shouldn't be any big deal. We certainly have power outages also during the winter.
Turned it back on, turned the PC back on, and get that blue screen that has the
recovery option like F10=Setup, F11=System Recovery, etc.
The keyboard does absolutely nothing.
Surprisingly, even the caps light won't come on, but perhaps the PC has to be actually functioning for this to work ?
Also tried, many time, to start the PC holding down F8 during the start.
Also tried pressing F8 on and off several times during the restart.
Still only that blue screen.
Pressing any of the option F keys during the restart process, or afterwards, does nothing.
Tried the keyboard in another USB slot with no change.
Pressing the power on/off button on the computer itself will not turn off the PC
once it has been pressed to turn it (back) on.
No restore, recovery, or Windows 7 were shipped with the PC.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
