Hello. I received great help from this community a while back with a problem, and now I'm desperately in need of help again. I've done several google searches, and I've found my problem listed, but none of the solutions have worked.
I hope this in the right forum, as I'm not sure what the problem is-hardware or software.
Here's what's happening: I was online, and all of a sudden, my computer began the shutdown sequence to my great surprise. When I tried to start it up again, it would flash the "Dell" logo, give me the options of F2 and F12, then go to a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. And that's it. That's as far as it goes. I cannot get into safemode, and I have no idea what to do. I don't know if it's worth pointing out, but before when things were working properly, I would have to hold down the power button, now, a quick push on it shuts the computer off. I've also tried unplugging it, but that hasn't done anything either.
I was thinking I'll have to take it into a repair shop, but I wanted to try and fix it at home first.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!
