      EXACTLY! Nothing comes up when I hot CTRL ALT DEL. The Screen just sits there and I have to keep restarting and then moments after it boots up it does it again. I called my tech and he simply said “well it was working fine when I had it up”. That’s helpful!! NOT.

    I’m at this moment in time just experiencing this problem, hence while browsing I found your piece on fixing the problem.

    There’s a tendency on the internet especially repair forums to copy other sites fixes without actually being in touch with the problem itself. This is the case here. If you actually had any remote idea of the problem itself you would realise that the people faced with this problem have no display whatsoever just a black screen and a mouse pointer. “Helpful” copied fixes only serve to create more angst and anxiety amongst the people facing the problem.

    Liken your fix to the English game of chance “Spotting the ball” where a scene from a sports game is printed minus the ball, the object of this game is to predict the exact whereabouts of the missing ball. Whilst the affected computer may still work and have access to the internet the chances of actually seeing “Task Manager” and then relevant tabs and typing the required data into a black screen are in a nutshell ZERO. There is nothing to see, no change in screens when buttons are pressed, no tell tale changes to the mouse pointer when a link is by chance found.

    Sorry to say you’ve failed dismally in this attempt to cure a problem you know nothing whatsoever about!
