Sounds like a graphic card problem. You should be able to remove your hard drive and connect it to a desktop computer and access the drive and get your important files.

I need reading AR but log in my number and password but I can't open for that thank you

Looks like this item is a rack that fits on a treadmill, so you can walk and read at the same time. Is that what you want to buy? Or are you trying to log into an online AR reading program? Accelerated Reader at your school? If so, you need to ask your teacher what the number and password are. It is whatever they put in for your, like your student number or something.

My computer brings up the wallpaper screen and stops. There is a icon to the right of the speeker button that is lit and reads "9". What is this?

Im not sure of what it is but I have in mine that you or someone did accidentally installed a software on your computer. Or in a case that your computer is positive for some either a virus or a spyware infections. Make sure to backup first all of your important file into a USB flash drive or external hard drive then have to do a System Restore on a previous date that your laptop is working okay. By accessing the System Restore just go to START >> ACCESSORIES >> System Restore. There have to follow the instructions then the computer will restarts. If in a case still same thing happen, try another previous dates. One other thing, try to check your startup items. In order to do that type "msconfig" in the RUN windows by clicking START >> RUN. After clicking the okay button it will shows up the System Configuration Utility window. Go to the "Startup" tab and check one by one regarding the name of the application that is/are installed on your computer. You can uncheck some unneccessary application that is not required to have everytime your computer boot up into Windows desktop screen.All of the Startup items will not coz harm on your computer, but have to make surewhich is/are important for you to retain, like having the DSL to startup automatically. Hope these things help. Thank you.
