  1. neither of these options worked for me;
    the screen continues to return to the options screen:
    Normal boot
    Factory reset
    safe mode
    power down

    what else can I do? HELP!

  2. Thank you so much for this. Soft reset worked perfectly. This is the first time it froze on me, i was worried. But it’s a computer and like all computers, they crash from time to time. i’m hoping that this is a continued issue or a virus. Thanks again!
