    Windows 8.1 START button not working on Windows 7 desktop


    I have a Lennovo 580 laptop with windows 8.1. Months ago I installed the Windows 7 desktop. The START button has suddenly stop working - i.e., nothing happens when I click on it. I have shut down and restarted the computer but that hasn't helped.

    Any suggestions out there?
