Hello everyone. I've looked at posts that had a similar problem with booting their computer, but I think my problem is a bit different. Please bear with me as I try to describe my issue in a caveman manner.
I was in the middle of watching a movie online, and all the sudden my computer shut down. It was due to a loose power cord. After plugging it back in I turned on my computer, and this is when the trouble began.
It turned on without a problem, went past the loading bar where it gave me the option to go to Setup or Boot Menu. After that, the screen went black and all I could see was this blinking bar " - " which lasted for about 20 seconds. After that the screen turned a lighter shade of black and stayed that way for a long time. The computer didn't restart and the screen stayed the same.
I tried booting different safe modes. Whenever I did this, It ran a couple of commands and then froze. When I tried the Last Known Good Configuration option, that blank light-black screen came up again. The same problem occurred when I ran the Restore Mode option.
Could it be my Power Supply? Or maybe my Hard Drive? I don't know. The computer is over 5 years old, but I'm hoping it's nothing as serious as a hardware problem. Thanks for your time.
