    Hi Ramson. Welcome to the TenForums @Ramson

    While not a desired way to shutdown device have you tried holding down power key, say for 8 seconds, it should shut off.

    Depending on what you are trying to do it maybe advisable to enter the advance Startup options and perform a system restore, not reset.

    You can get menu started by holding down shift key and clicking restart. As this process may not work for you, given issue, power on, as soon as you see spinning dots hold power key down until it shuts off. Do this again, power on, see dots, hold power buton until it shuts off.

    On the third attempt when you power on you should get the menu.

    Here is tutorial.

    If you can't get the menu, stop and repost with what happen.

    Hi Ken, tried to bring menu up but was unsuccessful however after much hair pulling found what the problem was, power pack had enough power to light up and turn but not to boot up. Replaced pack all is well. Once again thanks very much for your help.

    cheers Ramson
