Restart PC.
Turn on System Restore
Download and run Ad-Aware 2008 Personal to find/remove any other nasties that might be out there.

  • Close unused programs by accessing the Task Manager on the device. According to MobileTopSoft.com, Windows Mobile devices use a feature called "Smart Minimize." This software simply minimizes a program when you think you might have closed it. Thus, the device becomes slow because too many programs are running. Closing out programs via the device Task Manager should be completed daily.
  • 2Clear the temporary files from the device. Storage on a Windows Mobile device is at a minimum, and it's important to keep the phone cleared of any unnecessary data, such as temporary Internet files. To complete this task go to Internet Explorer and access "Menu," "Tools" "Options" and finally "Memory"; delete the files here.
  • 3Avoid overloading the device with unwanted programs. Programs take up storage space on your device. By taking caution when downloading programs and removing unwanted programs, you will minimize the amount of storage taken up. This will reduce the slowness of the Windows Mobile device.

    Cant see desktop icons or access Windows anymore. Brand new Nc10.


    If the Windows loading progress bar appears after turning ON the Computer and the Computer goes to the blank screen then perform the under given steps.

    Press "CTRL+Shift+ESC" key combination to open the Task Manager window.
    Next, click on the "Applications" tab and click on the "New Task...." tab located on the bottom of the window.
    Then type "explorer.exe" and click "OK".

    This would bring you back the Desktop icons and the taskbar.

    When I log on to my laptop, windows screen goes


    By going into the Task manager, type windows explorer in the new tab. That should bring up your desktop icons, The reason for this could be that you have a lot of applications trying to load all at once and it can cause some lock up in the system.
    A full system repair should be your last choice.

    My desktop is blank all icons are gone with icon tray !


    - Open Task Manager
    - Terminate Explorer.exe (may of hung on start up) on the Processes Tab
    - Back on the Applications Tab, click on New Task and type explorer after about a minute does the start menu and windows bar come back?
    - If so download all the latest virus defs for your AV software and also the latest (and free) spybot search and destroy 1.6.2 - do a sweep for both spyware and software and remove all and reboot your PC.

    This should help you - if not joy I would boot into Safe Mode and look at a system restore point. Also look for any unusual processes that are running in Task Manager - or ones you don't recognize since you last looked at them - if one looks dodgy, do a google search on it to see if its harmful and should be killed.

    Good Luck

    Task-bar & start-menu disappeared


    Sounds as if the video card is going down. This is a common problem on these laptops. Have you checked Device Manager to see if the drivers are installed. Hit Win key and pause then select hardware and Device Manager. If nothing seems out of place there then I would most certainly suspect the video card. This is part of the motherboard and not replaceable.

    As another check try connecting the laptop to an external monitor via the VGA connector at the back. The resolution problem should be resolved then.

    Icons and desktop not displaying


    This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.

    My icons will not come on my desktop


    This maybe due to the "explorer.exe" process not running. Try pressing ctrl-alt-del, to start the task manager then select the "processes" tab and click on "file". In the "create new task" window type "explorer.exe" (without quotes) & click OK. Your desktop icons should magically appear!
