    What will happen if I press xpress recover? I'm having trouble starting up my computer. I accidently closed something in the task manager box that obviously (obviously now after the fact that is) shouldn't have been closed. My computer restarted and now when it starts up the computer screen displays a menu that I can choose from

    Safe mode or start last known working startup or start normally ect... It tells me to use the arrow keys to make my choice but when I use the arrow keys nothing happens.

    I pressed F9 on one of the startups and it worked. What is xpress recovery and what will it do to my computer if I press it?

    Any help in restoring this computer to normal working mode with or without xpress recovery would be much appreciated.

    Thankyou

    I am a big fan of Gigabyte Mobo's but I would be a lot more comfortable restoring my system to an earlier date using the Windows Restore than using that right now. I might use Xpress Restore as a last resort. This is of course only my own opinion.

    Thankyou for your help. I ended up taking it to a guy in town and his keyboard worked so it was easy for him to fix it, and the good part his fee......."Merry Christmas" that was it, a freebie for Christmas.

    Thanks
