Hello,
I am experiencing problems with my laptop. It has started but only background pic shows up. No icons. When I turn on n off same thing comes straight up.
Cntrl Alt Del does not work.
It seems like it is not turning off correctly.

Any help will be appreciated.
Cheers,

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck

Another Option.

1. Right Click the background picture
2. Click on the view option
3. On the very bottom of the dialog box there should be a check box to either show or hide icons. Click that and it should display the icons again.

Good Luck!
