explorer.exe doesn't load automatically on start up RRS feed

  • Question

  • It started just the other day. I was working on something and MS Word was opened, also Google Chrome. I went away from keyboard to take my lunch. When I returned, my laptop (HP Pavilion G4) went asleep (as per my settings, after 15 mins idle time, my laptop should "Sleep") When I was trying to turn it on, the error on the black screen on start up started. Well I had a few times where my system would load, but it took me 3-5 times trying to turn it on and off alternately until it opens. I'm just worried maybe this on and off routine could cause more trouble on my laptop. I updated my version to 8.1 sometime on the last quarter of 2013, I'm not sure if it's on September, October or November. Can someone suggest some help? Thanks.
