HP 15-261SA laptop


Established Member
I bought this only in March this year and yesterday evening my husband found that there is nothing on the screen when switching it on. There is one light on - "Flight Mode" - but otherwise nothing works, apart from the mouse! He had been out all day and I didn't touch it (never do) but when he looked at it, it seems to be still on with the lid open and the small power on light still working. He keeps it plugged into the power all the time.

Most puzzling. Can anyone help, please?

Hooray! My son told me to hold down the power button for at least five seconds and that should reboot the system. I did that and now all is well.
