It sounds like your profile has a fault. In C:\Docs & Settings, there will be a folder with your username against it. Rename this folder and then restart the machine and logon again. It will create a new profile. You can then copy your docs, etc back to your new profile. If this doesn't work, I would suggest a software rebuild.

My GX520 pwr light is green, on the board is an amber Led, the somputer boots up, it goes the full process, until the arrow appears on the monitor. no Iconn are displayed on the desktop

If your computer gets to that stage, then I would guess you have an OS ( Operating System ) problem. Try booting from your XP installation CD. If that works then you may have to re-install Windows.

No start menu or destop icons on startup?

This is due to an error on your explorer.exe file. Follow the following steps to restore your desktop:

1) When you boot up into Windows you get something that looks like this:

No icons or Start menu toolbar.

2) What you need to do is hold down CTRL + ALT + Delete on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager, it looks like this:

3) Then click on New Task... as circled in red in the above picture.
4) The Create New Task window should appear.

5) All you have to do is type explorer.exe into the field next to Open and your dektop should be restored, icons and all.


NOTE: If you get a blank desktop every time you start up Windows then it normally is a problem with some third-party driver or process - either something from the Registry or maybe even the Windows Startup group. To check this, restart your PC in Safe Mode (as your PC is booting up, press and hold the F8 key). If Safe Mode loads correctly with your desktop as it should be then you have diagnosed the problem to be a driver issue. If you have System Restore enabled, use it to roll back to a time when your PC booted up correctly. If not then you will have to manually uninstall any software or device drivers that you added recently until you get to the stage before the problem.

There is a program called Driver Scanner that scans and checks to see if your PC is using the most recent and official drivers.

If all else fails you may need to perform a clean re-install of Windows.

If i boot my inspiron the icons on the desktop do not show it is only the cursor that shows

The screen may be showing the way it is due to the following reasons.
The user profile corrupt or there are system files may be missing
Try the following steps:
1. Remove the battery from the computer and disconnect the ac adapater.
2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds
3. reinsert the battery and connect the ac adapter
4. Power on and check again.

If the above steps do not work the next troubleshooting step:

1.At boot up press F8 and boot in safe mode.
2.Once windows shows up, Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Restore.
3.Here you must specify a date that is in bold numerals. It will reboot in a short while. And you will get a working computer

Thanks for using Fixya

To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.

Won't start completely

You have a virus I hope you have your data backed up. Reformat your hard drive(I assume you have a boot disk)

Won't boot. Power light on, No Video Signal message

It's also possible that your operating system has become corrupted. See if there is enough time to boot into safe mode, or choose a boot option to go into the recovery partition.

Have you made any recent hardware or software modifications?
