Hey! So when I was hopping onto my computer to do some homework, I couldn't open the start menu and the taskbar won't show. Whenever I hit the windows button, my screen goes grey for a split second and everything comes back. I would post a screen shot but I cannot do that. The taskbar is just empty and whenever I hover my mouse over it, it does the loading thing. How do I fix this?

Same with me. I saw a solution to unplug the power and re-plug working with me.

Please try it to check if it is working with you as well.
