    My acer wont start up?


    Well i have an acer travelmate b113 and it just wont start up i havent downloaded anything since i mainly use my laptop to play minecraft. Last night i shut down my laptop and it was doing updates i went to sleep and when i woke up it was shut down. I then assumed it had successfully done the updates and turned off. Later on in the day i go to turn it on and it turns on i hear the air from its fan however it takes me to a black/dark grey screen. My cursor is there however it occassionally dissapears and my wifi symbol (the one pinned to a taskbar) appears and dissapears i cannot remember what i clicked (i think it was fn and f5) and i got into my troubleshoot menu and did a system restore after the restore was complete nothing happened it restarted my laptop and took me to the same screen as before. I honestly dont know what to do. the last time i remember doing anything to my laptop is when i upgraded to win10 didnt like it and downgraded back to windows 8.1 idk if this has anything to do with the problem. If u have read this far thank you and if there is any possible soloution please reply <3 -natasha

    Nevermind guys i found a soloution all u need to do is a system restore (that worked for me) so if u are having the same problem if ur trying tp fix it get into ur troubleshoot options/menu the buttons to click to access these vary for each computer make (for example my make is an acer so i click fn and f5 when i start up before it takes me to the black screen) then click on the troubleshoot option then advanced settings and click system restore. The first time i did the system restore it did nothing (idk why) but the 2nd time it worked

    Hope this helps
