Is the laptop switched to the external vga connector, try pressing the FN (if there is one) and F3 at the same time to see does it cycle through the modes,

did you change your graphics driver/resolution or anything like that?

My Acer Aspire 5552-3691 has a blank screen with the cursor on it... The widows wont load up but it boots up fine amd everything. Please help


The user profile may be corrupt. After it boots up, try pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if a menu comes up that allows you to start the task manager. If it does allow you to start the task manager, you can try clicking "File" then "New Task" then type "explorer.exe" and then click OK to see if it brings up a desktop. You can also type "iexplore.exe" and see if it launches the browser. If any of this works, then use the task manager to launch "control.exe" (control panel) and use it to create an new administrator account if you only have one account active. Then restart the machine and log in as the new user you just created and see if it loads the desktop. If this is successful you can just use the new account and copy any files needed from the old corrupted profile.

Another thing to try if you can invoke explorer.exe is to open My Computer, right-click on the system drive and try and run the disk error check from the tools tab. It will tell you it cannot do so and ask if you want to schedule the check for the next time Window is started. Select "automatically fix errors" and check OK. Restart the machine and see if the disk checking utility finds and corrects the problem.

Win xp laptop won't run programs fro Start menu


Either your system is really corrupted, or you've got a virus. The only think that comes to mind is to go to task manager, find explorer.exe and click End Process, then click File > New Task (Run...) and type explorer.exe. This will reload explorer and possibly fix the issue.

Don't have a an icon


Please give more details as to what is happening and when it happens?

If you are saying your computer boots up but there are No Icons on the desktop, then a virus or infection has hidden them or changed some settings.

Click the Ctrl/Alt/Del keys to start the Task Manager. Press and Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. Under the processes tab click the columnar heading Image Name to sort the items running in alphabetical order. Look to see if you see explorer.exe running under the image name. If you do click it one time to highlight it then click the END PROCESS button at the bottom right of the Task Manager Window.

Next click FILE at the very top left corner of the Task Manager Window and select New Task (Run..). When the Create New Task window pops up type in: explorer.exe and press OK. Your desktop icons and start menu should start populating.

Blank screen


A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

Problems booting up--no access to toolbars, etc. on XP


Hi,

To resolve this issue, simple trick is, when it stands at the wallpaper without Start menu and Task bar, Press Alt + Ctrl + Del keys

Then select TaskManager.

In the Task manager, select Process Tab.

Under that select Windows Explorer process and select End

Again click on File menu in the same Window and select New Task.

Type Explorer.exe in the blank and click okay--OK

That should bring the complete screen.
