Desk top icons

When I turn on my notebook it seams to boot up normal except I am unable to see my desk top icons and task bar. I am able to force them to come on by pressing ctl,alt,del and opening the task manager. When I do this the desk top icons and task bar come on for about 10 seconds than they disappear again. It will continue to turn on and off as long as I keep the task manager open.

Gateway desk top no sound from speakers


Do you get sound when it boots up? If not, you should see a little icon that looks like a speaker on the bottom right of your task bar. Click on it and turn the volume up by moving the slider. If you do get sound when it boots up but don't get it elsewhere, more details will be needed.

Desktop is blank except for the mouse which does move. There is no task bar and I am unable to boot to a CD holding down the C key?


By task bar, I am unsure if you mean the upper menu bar, or the Dock.
The Dock can be placed on any of the four walls of the screen. Approach each edge with the mouse and see if a Dock appears. If not, go to the Apple menu / System Preferences / Dock, and turn hiding off.
If, on the other hand, you have no upper menu bar, you have some sort of unusual system corruption, and may want to think about reloading the system.
There are two alternate ways to boot from a CD/DVD. One is to hold down the option key at boot, and choose the CD icon when it appears. Another is to hold down the four keys delete, option, command, and shift at boot—this is a much older sequence and less useful, but occasionally works when nothing else will.

Wont display the desk top


Try rebooting, tap F8 to get into the multi-boot options. Scroll down and choose "Last Known Good Configuration" windows should boot up normally. If you have made any hardware changes or if windows perfromed a corrupt update, that will require some additional help.

Boots up has desk top with out any icons not start not startup bar nothing just a blank desktop - nothing at all shows up on the desk top however the "cursor" is there but will not right click


just a quick thing to try is to press ctrl, alt, del and then select file -> new task. Type in explorer and click OK and see if this makes a difference.

Let me know if this starts it up, if it does there is probably something stopping the computer get back this stage and we can look t turning this off from startup if needed

I don't see icons on the desk top and the task bar at the bottom does not show up

Looks as if the explorer is not starting up automatically. Try to start the explorer manually by Clicking Ctrl+Alt+Del keys together. This will turn on the Windows Task Manager. Then go to File in task manager> Click on New task(Run)> type explorer.exe This should start up the PC...

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.

External monitor


This does not appear to be a display issue but more of a failure of explorer to load. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del so it brings up task manager. Click file then go to new task and type Explorer and see if all of your icons and such show up. If they do you will want to install a spyware remover such as spybot search and destroy from safer-networking to check for any spyware that is preventing explorer from running. Also check your event viewer in safe mode and see if there are any errors when you boot.

PC Display after booting


Okay this is a flaw with XP. what you need to to is when that happens. Wait for the screen to load and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and that will bring up task manager. Under the file button on the top right hand corner and select New Task (Run...). Then the run box opens up and type in the box EXPLORER.EXE that should show the task bar and shortcut icons. If you need any more help just ask me.

All The Best,
