Try unplugging all USB devices next time.
Hi I'm running Windows Vista on a Dell inspiron 1720 laptop. After hibernation, I got the Dell splash screen, then the "resuming windows" message and then it went to black (no cursor or anything). I forced a reboot but the same thing happened. I've looked through a few forums for suggestions but they mostly require that I choose options that I can't get at. I've tried:
-F6 (which I was told was safe mode), but nothing happened.
-I was able to get to the set up screen (I hit F2 when the Dell splash page was up) but couldn't find anything that was relevant. when I exited set up, it went back into "resuming windows" then black screen.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
