    Hello,

    I'm having a serious problem. I decided to replace my windows 10 back to windows 8.1. When i installed it it was working. Then i installed nvidia graphics driver, chipset drivers(required to restart computer, i did not), audio drivers(required to restart computer, i did not), ATK drivers(required to restart computer, i did not), then "nvidia experience" suggested me to download new version of grapichs driver so i started downloading it. Furthermore, i went to install directx11 setup did not start and computer got "lagged". I "end tasked" the directx11 setup and decided to restart windows. But it did not restart, I was waiting like 20mins and it still it was showing: "Restarting...". Then i forcibly shut down the computer by holding power button for few seconds. Now when it loads up I can only see a black screen and my mouse cursor(can also move it).

    Any solution to this? I think i would be able to fix it if i could enter safe mode, but shift+f8 and f8 doesn't work for me because my laptop has SSD. And i can't open it through windows because it doesn't load.

    Yours sincerely,
    Eligijus

    try this, if you're shutting down try holding the shift key if not then try shutting it down with the button and take the power cable out for 10 seconds and put it back and start the computer and try going to safe mood

    I think the easiest thing to do is to re-install Windows.

    Is "...Can't..." in response to Ayge or Allan..?

    One of the assumptions on this Forum is that the "person with the problem" will provide as much help as possible to "the person who is helping".
