Hello,

Try "System Restore".

When only the wallpaper appears then hold the Ctrl, Alt keys and press the

Esc key --> "Windows Task Manager" will be opened --> Click on File -->

New Task --> Type C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\rstrui and press Enter.

"System Restore" window will be opened. Now try to restore your PC.

Good Luck.

Please get your system repaired using your installation cd and hence get free of the trouble.

Hello,

Try this 1.

Since your have renamed uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.dll.old try to change it back to

uxtheme.dll. Follow the below instructions.

When only the wallpaper appears then hold the Ctrl, Alt keys and press the

Esc key --> "Windows Task Manager" will be opened --> Click on File -->

New Task --> Type cmd and press Enter. Command Prompt will be opened.

Now type the following command.

cd\ ----> Press Enter.

Now the prompt changes to C:\>

Now type the following command.

windows\system32 ----> Press Enter.

Now the prompt changes to C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Now type the following command to rename uxtheme.dll.old to uxtheme.dll.

ren uxtheme.dll.old uxtheme.dll ---> Press Enter.

Now try to restart your laptop.

Good Luck.
