If you're looking for the quick launch icons on the task bar, right click on the task bar, click properties, then check the box that reads show quick launch, apply, and they should return.

Toshiba satellite c55-b5299 logs in. A yellow background w/ geometric shapes loads. NO PROGRAMS on the desktop at all. Try to pushing windows icon and the cursor becomes blue loading circle. Help!

Looks like a screen saver and it seems that is cannot load any programmes probably due to damaged files. Try pressing F8 just before it boots and select safe mode to find out the problem.

Screensaver set

Hi, go to start- Control panel- personalization. Click here and check if the
screen saver is turned off. It is located on the lower right corner. Click on it
to turn the screen saver back on. This is for windows 7.

If you are running XP go to Start- Control panel- Display. Click on the
display icon and there is a tab that says screen saver. Click here and chose
your screen saver.

Reformat and Reinstall XP, this would
clear whatever data is on the laptop. Or do an XP repair.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Problem with Toshiba Laptop U

this is clearly a no boot issue. you can actually do a power cycle first. remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter. press and hold the power button on the computer for 10 secs to drain all power inside the computer. turn on the computer. if it still freezes, tried to boot to safe mode. as soon as you see the Toshiba logo on the screen, start tapping on the F8 button as quick as you can to access Windows Advanced Boot Options. then choose safe mode only. if it doesn't solve the problem then most likely, your Windows XP is already corrupted. try to do system recovery. please be reminded that you will lose all data if you run the recovery.

i hope this helps.
