Can't get into programs from desktop

When I start up my computer it gets as far as the desktop but then I cannot access any programs or get on the internet. It just stays at the desktop and eventually the whole thing freezes.

I cant access my webcam from my desktop, i can only access it on facebook and things like that :s

Sometimes, your webcams's shortcut is not created on desktop, so you have too look for it in 'start' menu in 'all programs', or you can find it after getting into 'My Computer'.'

Go to the last point in time you can remember before you made this change and use System Restore.

this symbol > means go to the next step or window.

Start Button>All Programs>Accressoies>System Tools> System Restore. Now that you're there click it, use common sense, and get to the point where you are able to pick a point back in time to reset you computer to.Then click on that, initiate SYstem Restore, and con't touch anything or get impatient until your computer goes through shutdown, reboot and you are back at your desktop.

All those changes you made will be gone.

Can't turn on laptop at all. Lights come on momentarily then off

how far does it get into the start up sequence? what operating system?
It it starts to load up then when you boot hit f5 repeatedly to get the boot menu the select start with last know good configuration. If that fails start in safe mode with networking, to gain access to the net and your files.
install an antivirus like microsoft security essentials when your system is running next

Can`t load cd/dvd`s in my laptop. Clicking on my computer and the drive is not there, any ideas?

This is caused by the upper and lower filter registry in Windows. I've created a link for you. You have to access this link to download the rmvfltr.exe file. Regardless of the laptop brand you have, follow this instruction/s: It will work.
  1. Access this link: then it'll ask you to run or save. Download and save it to your desktop first. You'll have the RmvFltrs file on your desktop,

  2. For Windows XP, double-click the file RmvFltrs.exe on the Windows Desktop (select unzip) to start the installation program.

    For Windows Vista, right-click the RmvFltrs.exe file, and choose the "Run as Administrator" option. ** If a User Account Control dialog box displays the message, "An unidentified program wants access to your computer", click Allow. (Select unzip if it asks you to do so.)

  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.

  4. Restart the Computer.
    It should work after computer restarts.:)

Boots but to a blank screen just the pointer remains

Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.

If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.

Good luck :)

Eight click on your desktop, Left click Personalize, On the left you will see Change Desktop Icons, click there and just check the icons you want displayed on your dektop. as for the programs that you dont have access to, goto my computer, then your c:\ drive, look for users and then look for the user name you were logged in with when you did the update you should then see a list of folder and one should be Desktop, go in there and the files should be stored in there.

If that doesnt get you a full solution then ask me with more specific program info and I will get you the specifc answers you need
