    start button don't work


    when i click on the start button, either right or left click, there is absolutelyno kind of response. i cannot get to the control panel, nor turn off the laptop, nor anything else. the stupid thing is only two months old

    what is wrong with it, other than it being windows ten?

    System restore is turned off by default. Try to run the SFC command to check to integrity of the system files. Once you get everything working again turn on system restore and make a restore point. This is from the tutorial forum. SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums .
