Hello,

I had an external monitor connected to my laptop. I had disconnected it and now all I get on my screen is the cursor. How do I get my desktop to appear

Hi there,

Have you tried entering OS in Safe Mode? You can even try using the Advanced boot menu and select the last good known configuration that worked. This menu can be accessed pressing F8 when starting the PC.
Do you have the possibility to attach a second monitor to the laptop and check again?

Hope this helps
