My dell inspiron m5030 laptop goes to my background screen with nothing to choose.wat happened?

They are hiding behind background screen and discussing between services in background for conspiracy against you. Not really as it was, windows is processing a start up item, if it really doesn't load anything perhaps your explorer is stop working or taking a longer time to load, try pressing Ctrl+alt+del, open task manager, click on "Processes" tab and try look for "explorer.exe", if it doesn't show there you go to "File" menu and click "new task (run)" and type explorer, if you can find explorer.exe in task manager, right click to it and select "end task" then after it gone repeat step before.

I have no sound on my computer

You didn't give your OS, but in the Tray Notification Area is there a Sound icon? If no Open Control Panel, Sound. OR Open Windows Task Manager, Processes tab, highlight , Image Name "explorer.exe" and click on end process, a box will appear, end process, In the top left corner of Windows Task Manager is FILE, click, New Task (Run...), in the open box type, explorer.exe, and click OK. This will return your icons. As for the audio open Device Manager, Sound, is it enabled? Drivers? Have you done a OS upgrade? You could do a system restore to a date before this issue.

My pc shows end program-explorer.exe

First thing you need to scan your hard drive for a possible virus infection.
If the anti-virus cannot find and fix the problem, the explorer.exe file is damaged/corrupted and you need to have it replaced by reinstalling Windows.

Compaq n600c hang problem plz slove my problem

Please give more information Like --
After how much time it hangs?
what OS u r using?

in general answer --
open task manager (pressing CTRL,ALT, DEL keys) this will bring up Windows Task Manger, click on Application, highlight any task that is Not Responding and click on End Task. 

Also, to make your CPU boot up faster, I would
click on Start
click on Run
type msconfig.exe (this will open System Configuration Utility box)
click on the Start Up Tab
(you will see several boxes checked under Startup Item). And look for programs that you don't want to launch every single time you log on. (such as Realpayer, yahooMessegner, realsched, etc). 
Uncheck the boxes and this will require a reboot. Your computer will bootup a lot faster. These programs you can always open when you want. You can always tell if you have a lot of programs that startup when you turn on your cpu and in the righthand corner, where the time time is at, you see a lot of icons. 

Also if you can always open up task manager again, click on Processes, find explorer.exe and kill that process, this closes everything on your screen. dont worry... 
then in task manager 
click on FIle
New Task Run
and type explorer.exe and click OK
and you will see all your icons pop back up on the screen.
