Hello,
When i start my computer, windows start, but nothing prior happens. Desktop appears blank with no icons, no task bar, no start up menu. I tried using ctrl+alt+del, but even task manager is not appearing. i tried using the safe mode but even safe mode is not starting. i tried using last known good configuration but even that is not of use cause it leads to configuration already in problem. please help me.

Hello,

Try this 1

When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get "Windows

Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keeptapping the

F8 key)

Select the option "Enable VGA Mode".

If the problem still exists then let me know if you are able to boot into "Safe

Mode with Command Prompt". Do you have Windows XP CD ?

Good Luck
No, i wasn't able to use "safe mode with command prompt"...

Unfortunately, I'm not even having the Windows xp cd.. :(

thanx for replying mate, just wanted to make sure before applying to it that "will using the vga mode gonna effect the system in any way?"

Hello,
If the display settings got configured to an another setting that the monitor cannot display then "Enable VGA Mode" is useful. It will start the Windows in 640 x 480 mode and later you can change it to the compatible video settings.
Good Luck
