Something strange just happened to my laptop

Screen went blank, turned blue, some king of middle eastern writing filled the screen.
Blank again, then I had to restart it.
Weird for sure. Hope I have not been targeted.

Maybe take it offline, Run your virus scan I think

Use an external hard disk, format that HD on another computer (!!!), then backup all your documents and data.

@helenS Too complicated for me. Ran a scan and no issues 🤷‍♂️

I believe there is some nefarious viruses or something going on over last 4-5 days.

@gdon39 5 hours later and laptop has no issues. All is well...I hope 😐

hmmm Middle eastern writing ? , that is weird and i'm very used to computers fucking up
Gusman · 56-60, M
@FurryFace No idea what went on. Foreign writing was only up for two seconds? 🤷‍♂️

@Gusman yeah like an Idiot Technician telling me you can tell a motherboard needs replacing in 10 min and i'm like that's Ridiculous , it takes a few hours trying everything you know to come to that final conclusion in the end

That was probably just a BSoD.

If it continues to happen, then you're in trouble,
