Long story. My work computer crashed recently and just got it back today. I updated my main quoting tool which is 2020 worksheet and the computer after the update said I had to restart my laptop. I closed all of my programs on the laptop and the. Restarted the computer. Instead of opening the regular welcome screen in which I would normally log into, it took me to a screen in which to select a language setting for a windows 7 installation. I had used the laptop previously to this for several hours but trying to close the screen causesd my computer to restart and brought me back to the same screen. Any ideas? Why would it do this?

Make sure there's not a disk in the dvd tray. They could of mistakenly left the windows media dvd in the tray

Sounds like you need to call the IT rep at work.
