Can't get to load operating programs and can't shut it down to reboot.
My T43 working fine - left running while did and errand. Loaded an instructional dvd to view - wouldn't run it. I took the dvd out. It rebooted the screen of the world ( the geographic, time zone, blue one ) but wouldn't reload the operating sytem, - no icons on the screen at all. I can move the curser but can't get it to kick in - Can't turn it off either. For now it is as described above running off my plugged in battery pack. Yikes!!! any help would be much appreciated.

Its definitely an issue with some programs which loads only after windows is completely loaded. It maybe the drivers acting up or some other malicious programs which is trying to hinder with the functioning of your keyboard. Try uninstalling the keyboard drivers and restart the computer. Let me know how that goes.
Is your computer reacting slowly when it starts up and shuts down? The cause of this is likely due to the fact that many people have an enormous amount of programs that launch when Windows starts up. Hence when you boot into the Operating System, Windows wants to load each program while you just want to do something else.
The same goes when trying to shut down your computer. Windows needs to close all open programs and services in order to shut down. The less you have running, the quicker it is to start up and shut down. Additionally, you may also notice a sharp increase in your computer's performance since it won't be using as much of the computer's resources with all those background processes running.
If you have a ton of programs that are loading during startup, it's very easy to disable these. This won't uninstall that program, it just won't start at the same time as Windows. It will still be on your hard drive and ready to work when you want to open it.
To stop these programs from starting up with Windows, simply click on Start, type in MSCONFIG, then hit Enter. Remove the check mark next to Load Startup Items and then reboot. That's all there is to it.
Whilst booting up have tried tapping the F8 key to get into the safe mode menu and either select the last known good configuration option or the safe mode option to load the operating system to then try and determine the cause. Should this suggestion not work a safe option to recovering your data is to buy a USB hard disc drive docking station, whip out your hdd, slot it into the docking station and retrieve your files using another PC. Repairing the operating system using the XP disc on boot up sometimes works but also trashes your personal data if it's on the C drive and it reloads the o/s.
Try to restart in safe mode with networking....hold down the F8 key during restart. If the computer reboots in safe mode, then go to system restore and restore the computer back a day or two. If this does not work, then try holding down F8 during reboot and scroll down and choose " Last Good Configuration".
It could be how you have loaded the labels. If you have loaded the labels and there is a small gap between the spindle and the roll, it will print one label and give a error-printer message and stop working until you unplug it for 30 seconds and plug it back in. I would reload the labels from scratch and ensure there is no gap.
Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center
