Hi - I wonder if I should be here! What happened is that I have a new (3 wk old) Compaq Presario laptop with Windows 7 and it's worked fine so far (and is working now) but a couple of times it has refused to boot up, first from Shutdown, then again today from Hibernation. Battery 100% charged and AC connection fine. Sorry, I should really write all this in a forum. I'll finish this first.
I'm not a techie, although I've been using PCs since Windows 95 days. I do a lot of digital photography and sound recording as a keen amateur - much of my desktop use is for that, as well as reading news, blogs, updating my own website etc.
Anyway I googled with this bootup problem and that led me here, but I see I'm amongst advanced users and knowledgeable Hi-Tech people so I feel like a guy who's wandered into a senior level seminar room by mistake!
But hello anyway -- the website looks very welcoming and I feel kinda at home here even if I shouldn't ...
