2 MIN ICON ON WELCOME SCREEN ACER


My dad fixed this problem by changing the background on his computer. I know this sounds like a strange fix, but apparently certain backgrounds just affect the load time and I think that's what this "2 min" icon was representing. His icon has now disappeared.

Cant see desktop icons or access Windows anymore. Brand new Nc10.


If the Windows loading progress bar appears after turning ON the Computer and the Computer goes to the blank screen then perform the under given steps.

Press "CTRL+Shift+ESC" key combination to open the Task Manager window.
Next, click on the "Applications" tab and click on the "New Task...." tab located on the bottom of the window.
Then type "explorer.exe" and click "OK".

This would bring you back the Desktop icons and the taskbar.

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.

Desktop.ini


start your machine...when the sony screen disappears press F8 (to get safe mode options) one of these options is a vista startup repair....choose that one.....takes a couple of minutes to fix and boot into windows so be patient....the reason you have this problem is the user profile has become corrupt but windows vista corrects this with startup repair
