Windows 8.1 Boots to black screen with cursor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Windows 8.1 Pro

    Boots to black screen with cursor. Can't get any response clicking mouse or pressing any key or combination of keys.

    What do I do now? No external access other than USB port. How do I even use that?

  • Called Lenovo customer support and (with a paper clip and the tiny button just to the right of the power switch) followed his instructions and reset the system.

    We're in the ice storm path, had a sudden power outage and we believe it sent an errant voltage to the machine. All is well again.
