Okay have a wonderful new wonkie issue with Windows 7 black screen of death and it is displaying a WIFI symbol in upper right corner of monitor.  Turn on computer and it goes right to this with nothing else working.  Ideas anyone?  User uses WIFI at home so I asked if he shut down correctly and he states he did.  Am I looking at a hardware failure?

Fixed....yanked battery waited 10 seconds and put it back in and restarted, works now.  I have now started doing this as a standard to stupid laptop issues, it tends to clear a lot of them.
