Loading of pc

Well i have been having this problem for the last few days now. Whenever i switch on my pc, it switches on fine aswell as any pc, and then when it loads up, the start menu and the bar which the start menu is situation loads up fine but none of the icons on the right load up, when i try accessing the start menu it won't let me and instead the mouse changes to a 'loading' mouse if you get what i mean, i cannot double click the icons on the desktop and cannot turn off pc, ive tried starting it up in safe mode and with everything such as command prompt using f8 and it does the same, f10 doesnt work as i cannont shut down or restart my pc, so a system restore is out of the question and i do not have the disk that the laptop originally came with any ideas?

I cant switch on my p990i phone.

Try power cycling the phone:

1. Remove the battery and leave it out for 5 to 10 minutes.
2. Put the battery back and turn the phone ON.

If you get the same problem, contact the manufacturer for possible firmware upgrade or repair.

Have a great day!

Screen turns white

Hi there.
The ribbon cable which runs behind the screen has either become loose or has become defective.
If you still have warranty on the laptop send it in for repair, if you don't post back and i will tell you how to disassemble the screen to get to the ribbon cable.
If the ribbon cable is faulty you can of course use an external monitor so you can still use the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have windows xp and haven't encountered a problem until the last few days when windows wouldn't load properly or my computer would just freeze up shortly after windows had loaded,or would work as normal...

If this machine is a few years old the most common problem is a failing power supply. The power supply starts to over heat and the internal switching breaks down causing it to not supply the correct voltages where neede (usually to the ram).
Power supply's are ver easy to test with the correct tool, if you have a PC repair shop near you ask them for a quote to test your supply and to fit a new one should yours prove to be faulty.
