Did you open the unit to see if something has come loose?

I do not have a Win10 computer. Don't worry, I have all my data backed up. All o it, so I can do it on a friends computer. Does XP have that Win ToGo feature? Also, what is the Fn Key? Exactly why I wanted to boot NT from a flash drive, but not sure if you can.

Sorry, just accidentaly posted duplicate post, modifying it. I think there is a loose RAM stick in there. Did not open it up, hear sometging loose and assumed this, because it sounded like a RAM stick sliding in the motherboard slot.

I secured the RAM sticks after I posted my last post, waited a while, and just tried to boot it up. Once I hit that screen- pressed F8, and it resumed Windows and what I was doing when it knocked down and it resumed what it was doing when it was knocked down, and it booted up! It booted up!
