Windows 7 black screen of death - battery died
Posted on 2012-04-02
Today I was getting a number of blue screens on my laptop...so I rebooted in safe mode to check the error log.
While I was in the midst of that - my infant daughter distracted me (they have a habit of doing that) - and like a moron I forgot to check if my laptop was plugged in. So - the battery died while in safe mode.
Now - when I start - it gives me the option of going to the BIOS (F2) - but progresses no further. Once the bios loads - there's just a blinking cursor line and it goes no further. I cannot get to safe mode, the recovery partition, etc.
Am I hosed - or is there a way around this?
