Ctrl + Shift + Esc does NOT work to bring up task manager

Ctrl + Alt + Del does NOT bring up task manager

Using the Windows key does NOT bring up any kind of menu

When I try to enter safe mode, it automatically restarts every time with every safe mode choice.

The problem is that after entering the User password, the desktop appears. Flashes the icons, then nothing but background image and mouse pointer are left. Right clicking with mouse brings up no menu either. At this point, the only thing the computer will do is restart or shut down. When it goes to shut down, the icons reappear and I can see my task manager I tried to open. Then it shuts down. I restart and back to nothing again.
