Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Is the desktop there with no icons?
Did you put the mouse cursor down where the system tray should be to see if it was on Auto-Hide?
Did you try and right click on the mouse with the cursor anywhere on the desktop to see if a pop-up menu appeared?
Sometimes when computer games are played the game changes the resolution on the monitor putting all the icons off screen, so by right clicking on the mouse and left clicking on properties the display properties will come up and when you go into settings you can restore them.
If none of this applies to your situation then
On boot up keep pressing F8. This will give you options, pick last known good configuration. and boot up.
If that doesn't work, press F8 on boot up and choose safe mode.
If this doesn't work then the Operating System is corrupt and will have to be repaired.
Boot with winxp cd and choose repair console.
