Hey, for the past few days my laptop hasn't been working. I'm running windows xp.

I start up laptop and goes through the normal procedure, comes up with login and I log onto comp. But as its starting, the only thing that's appearing is my desktop background. I have an error that comes up straight away to do with explorer.exe that says "" and a following one from WMD that send an error report.

I opened task manager and command prompt then restored computer back to last month but hasn't changed it.

I then decided to repair windows, but I do the usual, CD in, restart computer, but where it should come up with "press any key to boot from CD.", It doesn't even show and just boots as normal. I did change my settings to boot CD first, but with the cd in it still tells me to enter cd and press any key, which obviously after pressing a key, doesn't load.

Can anyone help?

according to your complaint, you said it would actually take you to the point of "press any key to boot from cd" but it will eventually not load....well that can be traced back to faulty installation cd...try another installation disc and see if this problem persist....but as for the explorer dispay without desktop components, the only option is to repair like you already wanted to do....but if that does not work then i'll advice you to get an external compartment for laptop harddisk, copy out your important files and then format afterwards....this has once happened to me and that was what i eventually resolved to and after that it workeed perfectly.....hope this works

Well I have 3 different discs, 2 official, one copied. But they all appear with the same start up way. And when I autorun them from task manager it comes up with either installing individual parts of laptop or installing my targa accessories. But they have "product recovery" and "reboot" cd on them, but not sure why they don't have those options or how to get to them
