It gave me the familiar grinding noise (a slow motor?), and instead of going to any of the regular screens after the NEC logo displayed, it went into the black screen with white letters that precedes my choice of Safe Mode. It only allows 25 seconds there before it automatically moves to the black Windows screen with the bar at the bottom, indicating that Windows is trying to start up, but then it flashes a blue screen with lettering I cannot see (too fast), and it returns to the Safe Mode setup screen.
If I try entering Safe Mode from that screen, using any of the 3 options, it does not do that. Instead it goes to the black Windows logo screen again and recycles its endless loop of incomplete starts. If I try entering regular mode from that screen, same results.
What can I do? Thanks in advance.
