    Is the monitor going black and then coming back on showing the desktop or what was opened on the screen?

    If the screen is going totally black and then showing a picture again it sounds more like a bad video card or a loose cable. I would start with tightening down the monitor cable and if that don't resolve the issue I would highly suspect the video card is on its way out. Hopefully it is just a loose cable as that is easy to fix.

There is a loose contact with your monitor, tighten the plug at the back of the monitor

Cant get back to desktop

Pretty vague help request "can't get back to desktop". Is the computer booting? Is it that your desktop is blank after it boots with no icons being shown on the desktop? Viruses can hide the desktop and other things on the computer. Maybe your boot process has the problem when it tried to display the desktop. Try hitting the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys. Hold down each key as you hit them and don't take your finger off the keys until after you have pressed the DEL (Delete) Key. This will bring up your Task Manager. In the task manager window click the Processes tab and look for explorer.exe. If you see it click explorer.exe to highlight it then click End Process. After you end the process click FILE at the top left corner of the Task Manager Window and click the option New Task (run). When the Create New Task window opens type: explorer.exe and press OK. This will cause your desktop to reappear with icons if windows had a problem displaying it on the boot process.

When turned on monitor flashes hp, boot(F-1), etc. screen and goes blank. Harddrive fans are running with no other activity.

Your system is trying to run. If you can see on the screen what key(s) to get to setup, <del>, (F1), hit the key and get to setup. See what video card you are trying to go to first. Then check your boot order. Make sure your Battery which backs up this information is good. Is the date correct?

Cannot get icon deleted from desktop. Cannot rename it. Cannot place it in any file. I restored to prior day and also did safe boot. Still cannot delete it.

If it's simply a locked file error you can use Unlocker to delete it.

Post your results or if after removal the icon reappears (as this would be more of the behavior of spy/adware).
