Why is the pc saying window needs to authorized, but when you click yes it show the background with no icons?


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

You must go through the safe mode and uninstall your graphics driver and install another one, may be you will find more compatible driver with your graphics card and your windows copy on gateway website.

My laptop turns on but displayed black background & white cursor


I would boot in safe mode and attempt to run a scan for viruses or malware. That is what I would think the problem was
You could also do a system restore to before this problem started in safe mode. If you dont know how to get to safe mode google it. something like "Safe mode Windows Vista"

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Hi manny, have you tried booting to safe mode? (when you see the toshiba logo, press F8 continously until you see the Advanced Boot Options, choose Safe mode or Enable VGA Mode then check if the problem still persist. If it doesn't, it's a possible video driver problem, maybe windows update changed it if you set windows automatically to download & install drivers for your computer. If that doesn't fix it, maybe one of your startup programs might be causing it, try running msconfig (start > run > msconfig) then disable all startup items on the startup tab & also on the services tab also (check "hide all microsoft service" first before clicking on disable all). Give me a feedback

Hope this helps.
