Not sure if this belongs here, but I need some help.
The symptoms: my machine slowed to a crawl. I was unable to open most programs and Windows Explorer. Firefox worked as did Gmail. Then, when I started up, the machine would pause at the ASUS welcome screen and sometimes go no further. Other times it would go to the Windows sign-in screen and I could sign in.
At that point, all I had was a black screen with only the Wacom Tablet app from which I could access Wacom Support on Firefox and then the rest of the internet. At other times, I could get through to Windows, but most programs would not work.
I had a USB rescue drive, but when I loaded it I was given a no operating system error message. Since I can't run Reflect on this machine, I am unable to make a new rescue medium. I don have Reflect on another machine.
Not sure if this is relevant, but a couple of times when I tried to sign out of the machine using the power button, I got a warning that a Macrium backup was running. Nothing should have been running.
