Re: desktop not appear
Try going into safe mode once your computer boots up press F8 repeatedly through the first stage of start up then after it should ask you what you want to go on click "Safe Mode" and when your on safe mode if it start up then we know it's not too late to fix it.
Go to My Computer Right click on your "Local Disk Drive" click properties "Tools" where it says "Error Checking" click check now tick both boxes then click start then something will come up saying would you like to scedule a scan when your computer next restarts click "YES" then restart the computer then allow it to scan then see if it works after that.

Hmm is there an error displayed or does it just boot like that? I would go into safe mode, by pressing F8 mutiple times at startup loading screen. In order for me to help you with the problem i need to know more about your computer. Go to START, then RUN. Type in "dxdiag". Save all that info to desktop then open with notebad or Word or something. Then copy and paste it on here.
dell machines store information about the recovery partition in the boot record of the computer. If your computer was reformatted earlier or the original boot record was replaced this would happen.
What you can do right now is insert the dell recovery cd in the drive and restart the computer. it will ask you on the screen to press any key to boot from cd press any key and the reinstallation formatting options would appear on the screen.
